Harvey Weinstein is back in court on Wednesday for the final act of the rape trial that landed him behind bars: a sentencing hearing where the once-powerful film producer will learn just how long he'll stay in prison for his landmark #MeToo conviction.
Weinstein is scheduled to be sentenced in New York City. He faces a minimum of 5 years and a maximum of 29 years in prison for raping an aspiring actress in 2013 and forcibly performing oral sex on a TV and film production assistant in 2006. A second criminal case is pending in California.
Both women that Weinstein was convicted of assaulting are expected to be in court to give victim impact statements before he is sentenced. Weinstein will also have a chance to speak. He opted not to testify at his trial, but at sentencing he won't have to worry about getting grilled by prosecutors. Other women who've accused Weinstein — including some who testified at his trial — are not permitted to speak at his sentencing under state law.
