Harvey Weinstein, once a prominent figure in Hollywood, has been found guilty of third-degree rape and criminal sexual assault. This verdict marks a significant downfall for Harvey Weinstein. The verdict was reached by a 12-member jury, consisting of seven men and five women. After deliberating for five days, they reached a unanimous decision, finding Weinstein guilty on two charges related to the assault of Mimi Haley in 2006 and Jessica Mann in 2013. However, he was not found guilty of one of the more serious charges, predatory sexual assault.
The trial featured several witnesses who testified against Weinstein’s predatory behavior, which played a crucial role in the jury’s decision.
While the jury’s decision has been made, Weinstein’s legal team has expressed their disagreement with the verdict and intends to continue fighting for him. Prosecutors are now considering bringing additional charges against Weinstein, potentially involving new witnesses in the trial. The legal battle surrounding this case is far from over.
