Did Harvey Weinstein rape four women?
The lawsuit against the producer relates to rape and sexual assaults that Weinstein allegedly committed against four women between 2004 and 2013.
The jury found Weinstein guilty of rape, violent oral sex, and violent penetration with a foreign object in connection with Jane Doe #1.
For these actions, Weinstein can now be sentenced to 18 to 24 years in prison.
In Jane Doe Case #3, the jury found Harvey Weinstein not guilty on the sexual assault charges.
In the cases of Jane Doe #2 and Jane Doe #4 (Jennifer Siebel Newsom), the jury members were unable to reach a unanimous verdict. So those two cases will come back in a new trial. For the first of the women, ten members found Weinstein guilty. In Newsom’s case, eight members were in favor of conviction.
The jury consisted of nine men and three women.
Harvey Weinstein did not testify at the trial. He pleaded not guilty. His lawyers tried to convince Jane Doe 1 and 2 to lie, and in the case of Jane Doe 3 and 4, the sexual intercourse took place, but it was with the consent of the women who wanted to advance their careers.
