Rosanna Arquette on Harvey Weinstein Rape Conviction & How He Assaulted, Spied on Her

A jury has found Harvey Weinstein guilty of rape and sexual assault, following a seven-week trial in Manhattan.

The jurors convicted the disgraced Hollywood producer Monday of raping then-aspiring actress Jessica Mann in a hotel room in 2013 and of sexually assaulting production assistant Miriam Haley at his apartment in 2006 by forcibly performing oral sex on her.

Harvey Weinstein Weinstein was convicted of first-degree commission of a criminal sexual act and third-degree rape. But he was acquitted of two more serious charges of predatory sexual assault and first-degree rape.

He faces a total sentence of up to 29 years in prison. His sentencing has been set for March 11.

“It’s a beginning,” says Rosanna Arquette, award-winning actress, filmmaker and activist. She was one of the first women to share details of Harvey Weinstein’s sexual misconduct.
