Weinstein is currently serving a 23-year sentence after being convicted of another count of rape and sexual assault. A New York court convicted him two years ago.

Weinstein was found guilty on Monday (December 19) of two counts of rape and sexual assault by a plaintiff named Jane Doe. She is introduced as “Jane Do One” to hide her true identity.

Jurors declared a mistrial in the case of Jennifer Siebel Newsom, wife of California Governor Gavin Newsom, and two other women. In the event of such a “mistrial”, the attorney may refile the case if the court has no objection.

Another jury on Monday acquitted Weinstein of sexual assault charges brought by another woman, Jane Doe. Dressed in a gray suit, Weinstein, the producer and co-founder of production company Miramax, which produced films such as ‘Shakespeare in Love’ and ‘Pulp Fiction’, was seen in a dazed appearance outside a court from Los Angeles.

Although he had been seen in a wheelchair at several previous court appearances, he was not in a wheelchair that day. The former movie mogul is seen looking down for a moment as he is convicted of rape. He then looked once at his attorney and once at the jury.

The court heard testimony from more than a dozen witnesses in a trial that lasted more than four weeks. But Monday’s ruling only addressed allegations of crimes committed against the four women between 2005 and 2013. A jury of eight men and four women returned verdicts against Weinstein on three counts of rape and four counts of sexual assault in nine days.

The woman Weinstein pleaded guilty to rape on Monday is Russian-born model Jane Doe. During her testimony as the first witness in the case, she said that in February 2013, while staying at the Beverly Hills Hotel for the Italian Film Festival in Los Angeles, Weinstein came unexpectedly in her hotel room and raped her.

“That night in 2013, Harvey Weinstein destroyed a part of me forever, a part that I will never find again,” the woman said after the verdict. The trial was brutal, I had to go through hell under cross-examination by Weinstein’s lawyers, but I knew I had to go through it to see the end. I did. I hope Weinstein never sees the world outside of prison again in his lifetime.

Harvey Weinstein’s conviction in New York in 2020 marked a historic moment for the years-long “Me Too” movement against sexual harassment and assault in the film industry. Weinstein appealed the decision in New York. Dozens of women have accused the Hollywood producer of sexual harassment and misconduct.
