Disgraced hollywood mogul and now convicted rapist Harvey Weinstein has been sentenced to 23 years in prison for rape. 

As The New York Post reports:

Convicted rapist Harvey Weinstein was slammed Wednesday with a 23-year prison sentence for raping an aspiring actress and sexually abusing a TV and film production assistant.

Justice James Burke handed down the stiff sentence inside a rapt 15th-floor Manhattan Supreme courtroom as the fallen Oscar-winning Hollywood kingpin looked straight ahead.

Weinstein, 67, was convicted last month of two felony counts — third-degree rape for a 2013 attack on one-time aspiring actress and hairdresser Jessica Mann and criminal sexual act in the first-degree for forcibly performing oral sex on former “Project Runway” production assistant Miriam “Mimi” Haleyi in 2006.

The disgraced movie mogul faced a maximum sentence of 29 years in prison.


In a bizarre address to the court before his sentencing was announced Weinstein claimed he had a 'wonderful time' with his accusers. 

He willl now reportedly be transferred into New York State's prison system to begin serving his sentence.
