Weinstein sentenced to 23 years in prison

Harvey Weinstein has been sentenced to 23 years in prison for sexually assaulting two women. Weinstein, 67, arrived in a wheelchair Wednesday to the Manhattan courthouse. The judge imposed 20 years for a first-degree criminal sex act for forcing oral sex on a production assistant in 2006. He imposed an additional three-year sentence for third-degree rape of another woman.

Why doesn't he become an SJW and identify as 'not guilty'

How did he force oral sex on that assistant? Was she tied down with legs open and pants down and his head in between? How does that work years and years ago now that he's old and already judged by public opinion which pressures legal outcomes? Did she not get what she wanted out of the deal?

The terminology used here is concerning. The man was a sleaze and detestable, but he didn't assault or force anyone. He allowed them to choose between earning positions and favor with sexual acts (horrid and illegal, but not force) and being unfavored or fired (exploitative and illegal, gross, but still not force). I don't think the punishment fits the crimes. You want to lock the man away for life, gather dozens of these cases and back that sentence with substance. Also the women should be scrutinized for possible prostitution—mildly, mind. Not every case will likely be due to the Weinstein making a request, but a greedy woman that knows of his reputation making the proposal and lying about it. This possibility should be explored in all of these cases specifically because of the man's reputation of sleaze and known cases of favors for sex in the business.

"Forcing" I'm no weinstein enthusiast, but those women all consented like prostitutes.

I'm not complaining... but why is the rape sentence lower than the other one?

That's a life sentence at his age. And with his health issues he won't make it past 5 years is my guess.

I suspect many of those cases were women angling for career advantage then jumping on a man-hating bandwagon decades later but he became a symbolic pinata for 100 years of casting couch culture. The legal system had to pacify the baying mob and crucify him. But fuck him, no sympathy.

The comment section here definitely proves the theory of rape culture, and it highlights how ineffective the #MeToo campaign really was; so many of you are still engaging in the worst kind of rape apologetics. Disgusting.
