Miramax mogul Harvey Weinstein has been found guilty of third degree rape and two counts of sexual assault.
Source


In October 2017, The New York Times and The New Yorker reported that dozens of women accused American film producer Harvey Weinstein, formerly of Miramax Films and The Weinstein Company (TWC), of rape, sexual assault and sexual abuse over a period of at least thirty years. Over eighty women in the film industry have since accused Weinstein of such acts.

Criminal investigations into complaints from at least six women are ongoing in Los Angeles, New York City, and London, England.
Wikipedia

Over 80 women accusing Harvey Weinstein of sexual assaults over the span of 30 years... Wow.
He has now officially been found guilty of third degree rape and two counts of sexual assault, so at least he will be held accountable for something, having unfortunately dodged the automatic life sentence that would have come with convictions on the other charges he was facing.

I don't know what is more disturbing. What he did or that it took over 30 years for anyone to pursue it criminally. And if not for Trump getting elected I doubt he would have ever been charged or convicted. Trump's grab them Hollywood Access tape, as crass as it was, it did in fact set things in motion for some justice.

I think the me-too movement was stirring regardless of Trump. Bill Cosby, michael jackson, weinstein, r kelly, Epstein, ect.. were all known for years and it was boiling up before trump ever came along.

We are, as a society, slowly getting better at examining the things we're doing wrong and ignoring.

He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it — Jeffrey enjoys his social life.”


It's sick that high-level members of society knew about Epstein and looked the other way. I guess evil is just easier to ignore when you're rich and powerful.

Except of course, Donald Trump.

I guess he gets a pass on all of his sexual assault allegations.

I was trying to find out why and found this story..
www.newsweek.com...

Im assuming it's because he doesn't care about stolen valor or he's playing dress-up.

If Weinstein was a nobody, he probably would have been convicted on all 5 counts. His lawyers are already in the process of appealing the convictions. I've always said, we have two systems of justice, one for the elite and one for the average citizen. Time will tell if he gets off or if he'll get the sentencing he deserves. (Since he was a personal friend of Trump, I wonder if he's planning on placing a call to him and ask for a pardon?) Weinstein is a dirtbag.

I'm surprised he only made himself an OF-4 instead of a Rear Admiral.

I don't think so. What I see here is the elite rubbing it in our face. He's done so much more than he'll ever pay for and these convictions won't mean much to him. He was offered up for some reason.

Maybe he crossed a line and pissed off somebody who had a lot more pull than he did.

Maybe they decided they needed to give the public just enough blood to satisfy their ire but not actually do any serious damage and he was the most expendable publicly visible figure they had. After all, the damage to the elite wrought by his downfall is much less than what would have been wrought by a politician.

I don't trust any of this as being real.

HAHA!


Eight days after the billionaire posed in a US Navy Seal uniform for this snap, he was in cuffs.

ALOT of celebrities came out against him. Public backlash would be huge if he got away with it all. I don't think his elite friends could do much to help him.

Nor does anybody want to stick their neck out for a guy with this much negative public heat on him.

His best hope is to work his remaining connections to get jail time at a cushy prison with a tennis court.

Haha. I bet some ex-military guy on the fbi team saw that and said "let's arrest this POS asap".

Wasn't the jury just deadlocked, yesterday?

Makes me wonder.....

Not that I'm not happy he was convicted of something, as I am. Just curious as to what changed.

I've been on a jury a few times and honestly couldn't believe some of the stupid crap that was discussed...

One lady didn't know if she wanted the guy in jail for 3 years because of her vote.
Ugh..

For anyone else who might be wondering what 3rd degree rape is:

A person commits Rape in the Third Degree (NYPL § 130.25) when they engage in sexual intercourse with someone who is incapable of consent. It should be noted that this statute does not apply to people who affirmatively indicate that consent is not being given, but rather to people who actually lack the capacity to consent. There are two main ways that the law deems someone incapable of giving consent to engage in sexual intercourse, the first is a person’s age, the second is their level of intoxication.

New York City Third Degree Rape

I haven't followed the testimony enough to know if Weinstein's victims were too young or too intoxicated (or both) for the 3rd degree classification.

there are jewwish only prisons, and they are like 'college dorms.'

you can leave and go, you just have check in times. so like noon, and 5pm, you gotta show up to be counted. the rest of the day, you can go anywhere you want.

this super i met, one of his boys went to this jewwish prison, because he was under witness protection. completely lucked out. and the guy met all these businessmen in there, he walked out with a 100k deal to import phone accessories, and that was only the first deal lol.

the only way to get in to the prison, is, well, be chosen to be sent to the prison. chosen, so to speak.

I'm stunned Weinstein didnt hop a plane to the Maldives or UAE and live out the rest of his days in comfortable freedom. He has enough money to have done it and I'm sure he could have found someone willing to fly him out of the country on a private jet... sort of a dumbass move to even stick around for the trial in the first place if you ask me.
