A bittersweet moment for the #MeToo movement as former film producer Harvey Weinstein was found guilty on two counts. Weinstein is convicted on one count of committing a criminal sexual act in the first degree (against Miriam Haley) and one count of rape (one in the first degree, one in the third, both involving Jessica Mann). The first degree counts carry possible prison sentences of five to 25 years; the third degree count, up to four years. Weinstein was acquitted of the most serious charge which carried life in prison.
