Harvey Weinstein Sentenced To 23 Years In Prison

The Daily Beast reports:

Two years after dozens of women bravely stepped forward to accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct, the disgraced movie mogul has been sentenced to 23 years in prison for rape and sexual assault.

Weinstein, 67, was convicted last month of sexually assaulting former Project Runway production assistant Miriam Haleyi and raping former actress Jessica Mann.

He faced a minimum of five years and up to 25 years in prison. Weinstein’s defense lawyer previously told reporters that while Weinstein “is unbelievably strong,” his team is planning to appeal.
