Weinstein sentenced to 23 years for sexual assaults

Weinstein, who has been accused of violating scores of women, was convicted last month of raping a once-aspiring actress in a New York City hotel room in 2013 and forcibly performing oral sex on former TV and film production assistant Mimi Haleyi at his apartment in 2006. He faced a maximum of 29 years in prison.

Both women confronting Weinstein again in court Wednesday after their testimony helped seal his conviction at the landmark #MeToo trial.

“It takes a very special kind of evil to exploit connections to leverage rape,” said the 2013 rape accuser.

“Rape is not just one moment of penetration. It is forever,” added the woman, who recalled a moment during the trial when she left the witness stand in tears and then could be heard screaming from an adjacent room.

“The day my screams were heard from the witness room was the day my voice came back to its full power,” she said.

...Weinstein was sentenced a week shy of his 68th birthday, and his lawyers argued that a lengthy prison term would, in effect, be a life sentence. They had sought a five-year sentence.

...The New York case was the first criminal matter to arise from accusations of more than 90 women, including actresses Gwyneth Paltrow, Salma Hayek and Uma Thurman.

And is it like the UK where someone gets sentenced to 23 years, but after "good behaviour", appeals and time already served they're usually out in 5 years instead? ...

Weinstein, who has maintained that any sexual any sexual activity was consensual, showed no visible reaction to the sentence. Beforehand, he broke his courtroom silence with a rambling plea for mercy in which he said his “empathy has grown” since his downfall.

He told the court he felt “remorse for this situation” but said he was perplexed by the case and the #MeToo climate in which it unfolded. “Thousands of men are losing due process. I’m worried about this country,” he said, arguing that men are being accused of “things that none of us understood.”

“I’m totally confused. I think men are confused about these issues,” he said in a calm but creaking voice, adding that he had fond memories of his accusers. - THROW UP

Quite possible here too. But...


Just as jury selection was about to get under way in January, Weinstein was charged in California with raping a woman at a Los Angeles hotel on Feb. 18, 2013, after pushing his way inside her room, and sexually assaulting a woman in a Beverly Hills hotel suite the next night.

Weinstein could get up to 28 years in prison on charges of forcible rape, forcible oral copulation, sexual penetration by use of force and sexual battery in the California case. Authorities have not said when he would go there to face those charges.

Three more sexual assault cases under investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department and Beverly Hills’ police could mean that he’ll face additional charges. No details have been provided on these cases.

23 years is exactly what he deserves and he has another trial coming soon, so hopefully he will get additional years after that trial and we will never see him outside of jail again.

Bravo to all those strong women who came forward!!

He'll be sent some place that will cater to him.

COME BACK RODEO COME BACK!
Ask him why he felt the need to delete his account, rather than just walk away and stop posting as countless others have done. Or he could have just stayed out of P&R.

That's nonsense. Everybody has the right to a fair trial. The lawyer was simply doing her job.

He doesn't even think he did anything wrong. That's key to why he needs to be incarcerated. He would reoffend.

thankfully we have the 8th amendment to protect against such...


Let me guess you were outraged by the Abu Ghraib prison case?

What about fact that people have been put to death for something they did not do?

And what job is that? Oh yeah, trying to create and maintain a market by putting criminals back on the streets so they can get caught again and the lawyers can get another pay day pretending to defend them and get them back on the street to start their scam all over again. Gotta love lawyers.

nope... not at all. I was and am appalled by what he said. I said he should drop out of the race.

also saying you CAN do something is hardly the same as doing it... oh and context... he said "they let you."

So yeah Nice Try!
