This is the prison sentence Weinstein could face
Harvey Weinstein was found guilty of committing a criminal sex act in the first degree involving one woman and rape in the third degree involving another woman.

Here are the sentencing guidelines for those charges:

Probation to four years in prison for rape in the third degree
At least five years in prison for criminal sexual act in the first degree
He was acquitted on the more serious charges of predatory sexual assault involving the two women, Miriam Haley and Jessica Mann. Those charges carried a recommended sentence of 10 years to life in prison.

Rape in the third degree? There is degrees of rape? 

Rape is rape!

WOW!  I was growing nervous he would be found not guilty since the jury seemed to deadlock.

I'm disappointed he wasn't found guilty on all charges, because he is. But considering the connections this pig has I'm not surprised. I salute those brave women and hope this brings them some peace and closure. Sexual assault should be tried the same as murder IMO, the victims life as they knew it is over. No matter how well you cope it changes you forever.

Yeah, strictly speaking you're correct. Sorry, I wasn't trying to write a legally airtight post.

I hope that this is the beginning of the end for all these disgusting criminals. #me_too really brought a revolution. May it continue.

I'm 56 and I have seen a complete reversal of values. When I was a girl, nobody knew the word or concept of sexual harrassment. I felt guilty and ashamed for every time that I was harrassed.  Victim blaming was automatic. I hope we raise a generation of girls, women and men who know not to cross the line.

Disgusting members of the German parliament laughed like hyenas (sorry, hyenas, you don't deserve that) in the 80s when rape in marriage was discussed first. It took so many years, every little step. Men simply saw women as their natural prey.

I salute the survivors of Weinstein's deeds and thank them. Sorry if I'm incoherent - this is such a huge, huge issue.

May he rot in jail!

My only fear is Trump pardons Weinstein. Nobody would stop him, apparently.

It's state charges not federal.

Weinstein is a huge donor to the DNC. I highly doubt it. Anyway, with it being state I would imagine he'd need a pardon from the governor.

I was very concerned that we were going to see far less time, so I am thrilled with the sentencing.
