Famous American film producer Harvey Weinstein was found guilty of raping a woman during a trial in a Los Angeles court.

The two-month trial heard details such as how Weinstein used his influence to lure women into “business meetings” before sexually abusing the women. Weinstein’s sentence has yet to be announced, but he is expected to face up to 24 years in prison.

An unknown witness in the case, a former model and actress known as “Jane Doe 1”, testified that Weinstein raped her in 2013 in a Los Angeles hotel.

The victim, who issued a statement after the verdict, said: “Harvey Weinstein forever destroyed a part of me that night in 2013 and I will never get it back. The criminal case was brutal, and Weinstein’s lawyers gave me hell as a witness. but I knew I had to go through with it. “I knew it and took it. I hope Weinstein never sees the outside of a prison cell in his life.”

The court ruled against the accusations of documentary filmmaker Sibel Newsom and the women nicknamed “Jane Doe 2” due to lack of evidence. Weinstein was also acquitted of the charges of another woman, known as “Jane Doe 3”.

Weinstein was tried for the rape and sexual assault of four different women in Los Angeles between 2004 and 2013.

Weinstein, 70, has already been in prison since 2020. The former producer was found guilty of sexual harassment in a case in New York and was sentenced to 23 years in prison.

Hollywood stars such as Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow and Salma Hayek are among those who accuse Weinstein of harassment.

After Weinstein’s secrets, which many women claimed were sexually harassed, were revealed, protests against harassment and sexual violence against women were expressed in #MeToo campaigns, which means “Me too”, held in many cities around the world.
