1 min read

Harvey Weinstein, the once powerful movie producer who ruled Hollywood for decades has been sentenced to 23 years in jail after years of private complaints about his abuse of women made headlines.

Weinstein was sentenced in a Manhattan courtroom for raping one woman and sexually assaulting another. The startling sentence meant that Mr. Weinstein, who is 67 and in poor health, might spend the rest of his life in prison.

Just before the sentencing, Mr. Weinstein, who was sitting in a wheelchair, told the court that he was remorseful, but also “totally confused” about what had happened to him, New York Times report.

The sentence marked a significant milestone in the #MeToo movement, which ignited after several women openly accused Mr. Weinstein of sexual assault and harassment.
