Harvey Weinstein sentenced to 23 years in prison

Hollywood producer was found guilty of sexual violence crimes.

Harvey Weinstein was recently sentenced to 23 years in prison. The former producer, and a big name of Holywood industry, was found guilty of the crimes of rape.

At stake are the cases of two women. Weinstein was convicted of raping one of them and forcing oral sex on the other.

The verdict was announced on February 24th, so the penalty for crimes of first-degree criminal sex and rape in the third degree would give a maximum joint sentence of 29 years.

After two months of trial, the sentence was known last week and marks the end of this process, one of the most popular that gave rise to the ‘me too’ movement.
