Weinstein’s Attorney Claims That Client Will Die in Prison if not Released

The attorney for disgraced Hollywood mogul and convicted rapist Harvey Weinstein is now claiming that his client will die in prison if he isn’t released.

As The New York Post reports:

Harvey Weinstein is broke and will likely die if he remains in prison, his lawyer said Friday at a hearing over whether the former powerhouse producer should be freed on bail pending an appeal of his Manhattan rape conviction.

“[Weinstein’s] physical and mental condition has so deteriorated, I do not think it’s an overstatement to say that if he is not released as part of this application, his chances of surviving in prison are rather low,” one of his lawyers, Barry Kamins, told Judge Angela Mazzarelli during a virtual hearing in the Appellate Division First Department.

“The defendant is almost blind, and he’s not ambulatory, and he’s on 20 medications,” said Kamins, adding that Weinstein is wheelchair-bound.

Kamins rattled off his client’s medical conditions — including diabetic retinopathy, coronary artery disease and spinal stenosis, or pressure on his back nerves, which causes a dragging foot.

Seeing as Weinstein is a convicted rapist, would his death in prison truly be a tragedy? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

If he dies,he dies and so be it. This is the punishment for all the crimes he committed against all the women he abused in his life time.

I think the judge should ask the victims to be the jury. If there was a procedural mistake maybe but just his health tough.

If that’s a valid excuse, half the prisons will be emptied out. Weinstein won’t be the first to die in prison and he won’t be the last. Boo-hoo-hoo.

Why is this even a question? He is where his actions led him and his victims didn’t have the CHOICE. I can’t feel sorry for him … he sure didn’t have any “medical conditions” when he was ravishing those young women.

So let me understand this; this POS abused his own body to the point of total destruction, and abused young women’s bodies who depended on him for career help. So we should somehow have pity and let him out. Sure, and let’s have Scott Peterson drive him home.

Sorry, but he needs to stay there. He is no better than any other rapist. He is a shining example for others. You play you pay! He is sick both mentally and physically, that didn’t stop him from committing the crimes. Rot in prison, you deserve it.

So because he’s sick, his needs should attended to more than the other prisoners that are going to die in prison? I think not! Just because his crimes were concealed by the Clintons and the obamas and he didn’t get ratted on until he was much older doesn’t give him the right to be treated any different than any other old prisoner. He needs to serve all his time for every “couch” call performed for him for a job. He’s a parasite and should be left in prison.

He should die in prison. he killed a lot of people with his disregard of how he was hurting other women. He just didn’t care how he hurt them. His raping of these young girls was of no concern for him only his own pleasure. He does not deserve to live.

“For the wages of sin is death . . .”
It is no wonder than decades of abusing women sexually has taken its toll on Weinstein’s health. Unable to live in his bubble of deniability, he is left to contemplate how he wasted his life trashing others. He could not see it until it struck him across his face, so now he is blind. The stress and strain of “violence against the weak” has exhausted his body, so 20 medications are needed. He walked all over “underlings,” trampling them with disdain and disgust, so now he himself cannot walk.
And we are supposed to “feel sorry” for this monster?
As he did to others without mercy, let it be done to him.
Death in prison at the hands of criminal avengers sounds like justice to me.
