NEW YORK — Ex-movie mogul-turned-convicted sex offender Harvey Weinstein will spend the next 23 years in prison for his conviction of third-degree rape and forcible sexual assault of two women.

“The sentence of the court is as follows: (For) criminal sexual act in the first degree, you are sentenced to 20 years in prison, five years post-release supervision….(For) rape in the third degree, three years prison, five years post-release supervision.”

“I feel remorse for this situation. I feel it deep in my heart. I’m really trying to be a better person,” Weinstein said, addressing his victims when he spoke just before Burke pronounced his sentence.

He said he “would do a lot of things over. I would care less about the movies, and care more about my children and my family…I may never see my children again.”

Weinstein was convicted on Feb. 24 of third-degree rape of aspiring actress Jessica Mann, 34, in a New York hotel room in 2013, and first-degree sexual assault of production assistant Miriam “Mimi” Haleyi, 42, in 2006 … Read more. 

“If Harvey Weinstein had not been convicted by this jury, it would have happened again and again and again. I’m relieved he will now know he’s not above the law. I’m relieved there are women out there who are safer because he’s not out there.” – Mimi Haleyi
