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.

Kenneth Petty, Nikki Minaj’s husband is in federal custody after having turned himself in to the Marshalls in California.
As reported by TMZ, Petty moved to California in 2019 and was pulled over for a traffic stop. It was discovered during that stop that he is a sex offender and had not registered in California. It is required by law. He was taken into custody then released on a $20,000 bond. Petty was charged for not registering as a sex offender.
In 1995 Petty was convicted for first-degree attempted rape. He served four years in New York State prison.
If he is convicted on this latest charge he could be sentenced for up to 10 years in prison.
