Harvey Weinstein Sentenced to Another 16 Years for Rape in Los Angeles

HeadlineFeb 24, 2023

In Los Angeles, Harvey Weinstein was sentenced Thursday to 16 years in prison for rape. The sentence is to be served after his 23-year term stemming from his New York sexual assault conviction, effectively ensuring the one-time Hollywood mogul will spend the rest of his life behind bars. Weinstein’s Los Angeles conviction was based on his assault of one survivor, though dozens have accused him of rape and other sexual crimes. Attorney Gloria Allred filed appeals on behalf of two survivors who were denied the right to deliver victim impact statements before the sentencing.

Gloria Allred: “You may say, 'Well, isn't it too late? He was sentenced today.’ It’s never too late to argue or to assert a constitutional right that we think has been violated.”
