While Harvey Weinstein was the subject of a great number of sexual misconduct allegations, a few of them actually made it to court. Weinstein was tried in New York, a state which is known for its harsh rulings in regards to sexual assault. He was ultimately acquitted of a number of charges, while being convicted for two different counts of assault. Each rape charge has the power to add 25 years to the sentence, so Weinstein surely could have gotten even more time in prison. Although the New York Times’ report of 25 years for the former producer is a hefty sum– especially for a man of his age.
