Harvey Weinstein has been found guilty of rape and illegal sexual acts following a seven-week trial in New York.
A jury deliberated for three days before coming to a verdict on Monday (February 24, 2020). The members found Weinstein not guilty of sexual predatory assault. They had to unanimously agree that Weinstein assaulted two women.
The panelists heard allegations of sexual assault and rape from a handful of accusers, and now the disgraced movie mogul faces up to 25 years behind bars, as well as a sexual misconduct trial in Los Angeles involving two women.
Weinstein has been accused of predatory behavior, sexual misconduct, assault, and rape by over 80 women.
Monday’s verdict comes days after the jury members were left deadlocked after proceedings on Friday.
New York Supreme Court Judge James Burke instructed the jurors to continue deliberations, urging a consensus on all charges.
