Harvey Weinstein sentenced to 23 years in jail for rape

American billionaire film financier, Harvey Weinstein has just been sentenced to 23 years in prison Wednesday for sexual assault.

When he was allowed to speak, he said:

“I’m worried about this country,” he began. “We are going through this crisis right now in our country, it started basically with me. I was the first example and now there are many men who have been accused of abuse, something I think that none of us understood.”

“It is not the right atmosphere for the United States of America,” he said. “Everybody is on some kind of blacklist. I had no power. Miramax was a small company. I couldn’t blackball anybody.”

“I think possibly men like myself, like Dalton Trumbo — they said they were Communists, and now there’s a scare, just like that now.”
