A judge in New York has just sentenced Harvey Weinstein to 23 years in prison and five years probation.
The former movie mogul was convicted two weeks ago of rape and committing a criminal sexual act. The sentence is six years shorter than the prosecution’s recommendation, but a lot more than the five years his defense attorney’s were asking for. All of the women who testified in his case were present at the sentencing.
Just before the sentencing, Weinstein told the judge, “I am totally confused. I think men are confused about all of this … this feeling of thousands of men and women who are losing due process, I’m worried about this country.” (CNBC)
