Convicted Weinstein faces up to 25 years
NEW YORK: Former movie producer Harvey Weinstein was convicted of sexual assault and rape by a New York jury yesterday and handcuffed in court.
Weinstein, 67, was convicted of sexually assaulting former production assistant Mimi Haleyi in 2006 and raping Jessica Mann, a onetime aspiring actress, in 2013.
Weinstein was acquitted on the most serious charges that could have sent him to prison for the rest of his life. He faces up to 25 years in prison on the sexual assault conviction.
The jury acquitted Weinstein on two counts of predatory sexual assault, which carried a potential life sentence.
