A Manhattan jury has found Harvey Weinstein guilty of rape and sexual abuse but acquitted him of the most serious charges against him. The mixed verdict means the former Hollywood producer will likely spend time in prison. The verdict is some measure of vindication for the six women who testified that Weinstein attacked and sought to intimidate them. Although he was acquitted of the most serious charge — two counts of predatory sexual assault, which might have put him in a cell for the rest of his life — the jury convicted him of third-degree rape and first-degree criminal sexual act. he faces a minimum of five years and a maximum of more than two decades in prison.
