Harvey Weinstein will spend 23 years in a New York State prison after being sentenced by Supreme Court Judge James Burke.
Weinstein was convicted on Feb. 24 of committing several crimes…..a criminal sexual act in the 1st degree and third-degree rape.
The sentencing ends Weinstein’s trial, which began Jan. 6. The Firm representing him has said they will appeal the jury’s decision to convict him on two of the five charges he faced.
Judge Burke, before issuing his sentence, told Weinstein that he will be formally registered as a sex offender.
