Two victims received justice in court when the former Hollywood mogul was found guilty of sex crimes. Others, however, may never see their day in court due to the statute of limitations on prosecuting sex crimes in many states. Rose McGowan, who has accused Weinstein of raping her, is one of them and was outside the court on Feb. McGowan said she could potentially speak in court if Weinstein is tried in Los Angeles. He has been charged with felony charges of forcible rape, forcible oral copulation, sexual penetration by use of force and sexual battery by restraint. So what does justice look like for a disgraced movie producer? Weinstein awaits sentencing on March 11, where he faces up to 29 years in jail. Currently held in a prison ward at Bellevue Hospital Center, the New York Times reports Weinstein will probably not wait with the general population of Rikers Island, instead being sent to a special medical facility. His lawyers have argued he needs extra protection at Rikers, which is known for incidents of violence, and will likely fight to extend that for the duration of his sentence.
More on Harvey Weinstein
By Chris Dyer For Dailymail. The year-old, who was one of the leading MeToo activists after accusing Weinstein of sexual assault, also said she feared he would hire a hitman to kill her in the wake of her claims. Weinstein was convicted on Monday of sexual assault and rape, more than two years after allegations of the disgraced movie mogul's sexual misconduct sparked the global MeToo movement. The year-old producer was acquitted of the most serious charge of predatory sexual assault but faces a lengthy jail term that could be up to 29 years. McGowan told GMB today the guilty verdicts were a 'huge moment' and that she hoped it would lead to more predators being convicted. Speaking via video link in New York, McGowan admitted she thought Weinstein would be found not guilty. Actress Margot Robbie posted a message on Instagram celebrating a 'victory for survivors everywhere' after the guilty verdicts in the Weinstein case. She also went on to claim he could be 'one of the biggest rapists in history' and alleged he was running a 'rape factory behind the scenes'. McGowan said: 'This is a huge victory for all of us who have ever been effected by Harvey Weinstein.

After years of publicly accusing Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein of rape, the actor Rose McGowan has detailed the sexual assault she said occurred after their first meeting more than 20 years ago. Then 23 years old, McGowan wrote in Brave that, after the screening, Weinstein allegedly summoned her to a meeting at a restaurant, which was later relocated to his hotel suite. Instead, she alleged, after a half-hour discussion about her career, he held her down on the edge of a jacuzzi and raped her. I had been so violated and I was sad to the core of my being. I told him to stop doing that. Mr Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances. After becoming a teenage runaway, enduring a three-year abusive relationship, and being sporadically homeless, McGowan said this background was instrumental in her decision to not press charges against Weinstein.
On Monday, a Manhattan jury convicted Harvey Weinstein of sex crimes, and the Hollywood producer was remanded to police custody, where he awaits a sentence that could total more than twenty-five years in prison. Weinstein will be sentenced on March 11th. He also awaits trial on separate charges in Los Angeles. For many of the more than ninety women who have publicly accused Weinstein of sexual harassment or assault, the New York trial comes after years of frustration.
