Harvey Weinstein sentenced to 23 years in prison!

Harvey Weinstein has been sentenced to 23 years in prison for rape and sexual assault.

During the hearing, he told the court men facing allegations in the #MeToo movement are accused of “things that none of us understood”.

The disgraced film producer, who arrived at court in a wheelchair, committed a “lifetime of abuse towards others” as well as the crimes for which he has been convicted, prosecutors said.

Mr Weinstein also said: “Thousands of men are losing due process. I’m worried about this country.”

He was sentenced to 20 years on the criminal sex act charge for forcibly performing oral sex on production assistant Mimi Haleyi in 2006.

He was also sentenced to three years for third degree rape for the attack on Jessica Mann in 2013.
