Harvey Weinstein Sentenced To 23 Years Behind Bars!
Producer Harvey Weinstein will appear to pay for ALL OF THE SINS he committed during his time as a big shot in Hollywood. Read on because Harvey Weinstein NEVER thought he was going to be sentenced to 23 years behind bars…
CelebNMusic247.com reports that Harvey Weinstein complained he was going through ‘hell on earth’ before sentencing, but it didn’t matter the judge had already decided his fate.
According to reports Harvey Weinstein begged for a light sentence on Wednesday, telling the court he was going through “hell on earth” and was “really trying to be a better person.”
We understand that he is trying to better as a person now, but it doesn’t makeup for the turmoil and pain he caused multiple women for his own selfish needs to get off.
The New York Post reports that the 67-year-old tried to play down his power and influence in Hollywood. Then he tried to brag about the millions he has raised for New York following the likes of Hurricane Sandy and Sept. 11. Hoping that was going to make a difference.
Weinstein admitted he was the spark for the whole #MeToo movement. He also said he was just one of many men “totally confused” by the complaints against them. Harvey claims that he even wanted to open a specialist clinic for men who had been accused.
Weistein said in Manhattan Supreme Court:
I really feel remorse for this situation. I feel it deeply in my heart. [I’m a] really trying to be a better person.
The convicted rapist relied on self-pity as he pleaded for a light term before he was sentenced to 23 years, and it didn’t work.
He whined of the original reports of his widespread abuse:
The thing for me is I have not seen my three older children since the newspaper, since the New Yorker article came out. So I have not seen them. I just have no idea what they are doing, and I’m in no communication with them. That for me is hell on earth. I may never see my children again.
If I had to do it over again, I would not do it that way. If I had to do a lot of things over, I would care less about the movies and care more about my children, family, and other people and friends.
Weinstein also apologized to his two wives — Eve Chilton Weinstein, and Georgina Chapman, who was with him when the scandal broke “knew nothing about this.”
I went through extraordinary lengths to hide my extramarital affairs. They had nothing to do with anything. I was unfaithful to both and I just cannot tell you how bad I feel about that.
The movement basically started with me … now there are thousands of men who are being accused.
Then he tried to use the work pressure card saying:
He even suggested that his despicable behavior could have been a result of the pressure he was under.
I worked too hard. As a result of working too hard, I felt too much pressure on myself.
Harvey Weinstein has been sentenced to 23 years in a New York State prison on charges of sexual assault and third-degree rape and will be formally registered as a sex offender
