Former Hollywood film producer Harvey Weinstein has been found guilty in another sexual assault case. The NY Post reports it.
The crime was committed in 2013 against a model from Russia, whose name is not revealed. In total, the charges of four women were considered at trial. The jury could not reach a verdict on the testimony of two of them: the wife of the governor of California, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, as well as the actress and screenwriter Lauren Young.
“Harvey Weinstein destroyed a part of me forever that night in 2013 and I will never get that back. The criminal process was cruel, and Weinstein’s lawyers gave me hell as a witness, but I knew I had to see the case through to the end, and I did,” the victim said.
On charges brought by an anonymous woman identified as “Jane Doe Number Three,” the jury acquitted the former film producer. In the new rape case, Weinstein faces up to 18 years in prison, but aggravating circumstances could increase that sentence to 24 years.
Let’s remember that last fall, Queen Elizabeth II stripped Harvey Weinstein of the title of Commander of the Order of the British Empire due to his criminal record.
