Harvey Weinstein Was Just Sentenced to 23 Years in Prison

It’s over…

After being convicted on charges of first-degree criminal sexual act and third-degree rape, Harvey Weinstein was sentenced to 23 years in prison.

Over 80 women have claimed they were victimized by Harvey, according to The New York Times, but these specific charges focused on two women: Miriam “Mimi” Haleyi and aspiring actress Jessica Mann.

Mimi testified that Harvey forcibly performed oral sex on her in his apartment in 2006. Jessica claimed that she was raped in 2013, and that it was “preventable.”

“This was a known offender whose previous crimes were covered up in a paper trail” of non-disclosure agreements, Jessica said in court. “I am forced to carry that experience until I die. It is a recurring nightmare that I feel is just as real as when it happened.”

Prosecutors had asked the court to give Harvey the maximum sentence of up to 29 years, claiming that he led a “lifetime of abuse towards others, sexual and otherwise.”

Meanwhile, his own lawyers were trying to get him a short five year sentence, claiming, “His wife divorced him, he was fired from The Weinstein Company, and in short, he lost everything,” NBC reports.

Clearly… justice was served.
