A few weeks ago, a jury found Harvey Weinstein guilty of raping Jessica Mann, who wanted to become an actress at the time. In addition, it was considered proven that he assaulted a former assistant, Mimi Haleyi. Weinstein was sentenced to 29 years in prison for these offenses. Weinstein has already announced through his lawyer Donna Rotunno that he will appeal regardless of the decision. He denies the charges and maintains that there has only been sex with mutual consent.
