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

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.
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.
