Harvey Weinstein Found GUILTY on Rape Charges in New York Trial

His days of running roughshod over women are no more.

A jury of 12 men and women has convicted former movie mogul Harvey Weinstein guilty on two of the five potential criminal charges he faced in his New York County trial.

Weinstein has been convicted of criminal sexual assault in the first degree, based on the testimony of former Project Runway production assistant Miriam Haley, and rape in the third degree, based on the testimony of one-time aspiring actress Jessica Mann.

The verdict was announced on Monday after the jury of seven men and five women spent five days deliberating on his fate.

Weinstein will be sentenced at a later date. He’s facing five to 25 years for the criminal sexual assault conviction and 18 months to four years for the third-degree rape conviction.
