The Harvey Weinstein verdict was just delivered and while he will be headed to jail, and hopefully die there, it is far from what he deserved in terms of justice.
Weinstein was found guilty of two charges: rape and a felony sex crime.
He was not, however, found guilty in the two most serious charges being levied against him.
While everyone was happy he was found guilty on two charges, his other victims are left wondering why they personally do not receive any justice from the horrific experiences they had at the hands of Weinstein.
The two women related to the charges are Mimi Haley and Jessica Mann.
Haley is a former production assistant for Weinstein and Mann is a former actress.
The two charges of predatory sexual assault, however, failed, each of which would have ensured that Weinstein never left his jail cell until he did so in a box.
Weinstein has been ordered to be held in custody until his sentencing hearing.
Mr. Weinstein’s health has either taken a serious turn for the worse or he is one hell of an actor.
He appeared outside the courtroom using a walker and looking disheveled after the verdict was read.
Over the last six weeks, a parade of women have testified telling the world how despicable of a man he is.
Some of the testimony, such as that from Annabella Sciorra, who played Gloria Trillo on “The Sopranos,” was not prosecutable, but it did go into the factoring of the decision.
These women all told stories of how Weinstein regularly exchanged forced sexual activity for an opportunity.
Sciorra testified, “I was just trying to get him away from me and he took my hands and he put them over my head.
“He got on top of me and he raped me.”
This was typical of the stories given by the victims.
With this case now over, Weinstein will have to stand trial for four more counts of rape and sexual battery in Los Angeles, CA.
