A jury found Weinstein guilty
Producer Harvey Weinstein was found guilty of rape and forced sex. The decision was made by a jury in New York.
The jury considers the producer’s guilt proven on two of the five counts of raping the stylist Jessica Mann and coercion to oral sex Miriam Hali, who worked as an assistant in the TV show Project Runaway. For this, he faces up to 25 years imprisonment.
On three other points, which could be threatened up to life imprisonment for Weinstein, he was acquitted.
More than 80 women have accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment and rape decades ago. It cost a career for the 67-year producer. Also, his wife left him and many of his colleagues turned away.
Accusations against Weinstein, who won an Oscar for Pulp Fiction and The King’s Speech, formed the basis of the #MeToo
movement. Its participants drew wide attention to the problem of sexual harassment.
