Before he was sentenced, Weinstein said, “Thousands of men are losing due process. I’m worried about this country.”

Via CBS News:

Weinstein was convicted Feb. 24 of rape in the third degree for assaulting aspiring actress Jessica Mann in a New York City hotel room in 2013, and of committing a criminal sex act for forcing oral sex on former production assistant Mimi Haley in 2006. 

A judge sentenced him to serve 20 years on the first count and three years on the second count, to run concurrently, meaning the prison sentence is effectively 20 years. He must also serve five years of post-release supervision and register as a sex offender.

Oh, I’m sure Bill Cosby will be dropping some fire bars on Twitter about this today!

Good riddance!
