Harvey Weinstein was acquitted of the most serious predatory rape charges, but was convicted of two lesser charges, first degree criminal sexual act in regards to one victim and third degree rape in regards to the other victim.
The first degree charge carries a minimum of 5 years and a maximum of 25 years. The third degree charge carries no minimum and a maximum of 4 years. Thus he faces a minimum of 5 years in prison and a maximum of 29 years.
However, he is expected to receive a very lengthy term and if he receives the maximum term, he would be 96 years old on release if he survives that long. He likely will get a sentence in the 20 year range, with the idea in mind that he will die in prison.
He was remanded into custody upon his conviction by the jury. Tonight he is spending the first night of what will likely be the rest of his life in prison.
