The disgraced Hollywood producer and mogul has been sentenced to 23 years in a New York state prison after being convicted on felony sex crimes.
The #Metoo movement has proven itself extremely effective as Weinstein is the latest in the string of sex offenders in powerful positions who have had their feet held to the fire and have been held accountable.
Two of Weinstiens accusers gave statements before the sentencing.
“He violated my trust and my body and my personal right to deny sexual advances,” said Miriam Haley
Haley testified that Weinstein forced her to give him oral sex in 2006.
Weinstein also gave a statement.
“I really feel remorse for this situation. I feel it deeply in my heart. I’m really trying, I’m really trying to be a better person.” he said.
Weinstein, 67-years-old will be spending the rest of his life in prison.
