Two years after dozens of women bravely stepped forward to accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct, the disgraced movie mogul has been sentenced to 23 years in prison for rape and sexual assault.
Weinstein, 67, was convicted last month of sexually assaulting former Project Runway production assistant Miriam Haleyi and raping former actress Jessica Mann. The Oscar-winner, however, was cleared of two counts of predatory sexual assault—the most serious charges against him which carried with them the possibility of life in prison. He faced a minimum of five years and up to 25 years in prison.
“It is time for people who rape other people to pay with their life and the life they took,” Mann told the court shortly before he was sentenced.
