Guilty: Harvey Weinstein faces lengthy jail time

Details around the verdict that was delivered by the jury on Monday afternoon are still sketchy at the moment.

However, we do know, according to CNN’s Brooke Baldwin, that the jury found the 67-year-old guilty of acts of criminal sex in the first degree involving one woman, and rape in the third degree involving another woman.

Furthermore, Weinstein escaped the more serious charges and was acquitted of predatory sexual assault against Miriam Haley and Jessica Mann.
