Harvey Weinstein Sentenced To Over 20 Years In Prison

It looks like Harvey Weinstein will die in prison. As most of you know, the 67-year-old Hollywood big shot was convicted back on Feb. 24 of committing a Criminal Sexual Act in the first and third-degree rape.

On Wednesday morning, the judge working the case sentenced him to 20 years in prison plus five years of supervised release.

The max sentence was close to 30 years, so the judge could have been even harsher with the sentencing. Although, it likely doesn’t matter if it’s 20 or 30 years, with Weinstein’s poor health, it’s looking like he will die in prison.

Weinstein’s lawyers begged for mercy earlier this week, asking the judge to sentence him to 5 years because — among other things — he has no prior criminal record, and his life and career had already been destroyed.

His legal team also pointed to huge charitable contributions, including millions for 9/11 firefighters and police officers.

Of course, making charitable contributions doesn’t mean you’re not a rapist. It simply means you have a lot of money.

Weinstein is also still facing charges in Los Angeles as well, so yeah, the future does not look good. His money and power in Hollywood protected him for decades, but not anymore.

Watch The Trailer For ‘Brian Banks’ Based On True Story Of Wrongly Convicted Football Star

Have you heard Brian Banks’ story? It’s pretty heartbreaking. At 16-years-old, Banks was an All-American high school football star. He was set to play college ball and had his eyes on the NFL.

But his life changed forever during his junior year of high school when he was falsely accused of sexual assault and imprisoned for six years until the California Innocence Project re-litigated his case and found him to be innocent.

His accuser admitted to making up the story during a meeting with a private investigator.

Now the story is getting the Hollywood treatment. The film, ‘Brian Banks’ stars Aldis Hodge, Greg Kinnear and Sherri Shepherd. It’s expected to hit theaters August 9, 2019.

Documentary Filmmaker Morgan Spurlock Confesses His Sins, Reveals He Has History With Sexual Misconduct, Cheating And Alcoholism

This is certainly an interesting strategy. Instead of waiting to see if the allegations against him came out, Morgan Spurlock decided to release the allegations himself. It was almost like a confessional on social media.

The Super Size Me documentarian, who recently sold his sequel doc Holy Chicken! to YouTube Red for $3.5 million, revealed that he can no longer sit back and wait. He doesn’t want to be part of the problem anymore. Instead, he wants to be part of the solution, and the first step in that? Coming clean.

He started out his confessional by writing…

“As I sit around watching hero after hero, man after man, fall at the realization of their past indiscretions, I don’t sit by and wonder ‘who will be next?’ I wonder, ‘when will they come for me?’ You see, I’ve come to understand after months of these revelations, that I am not some innocent bystander, I am also a part of the problem.”

So what exactly did he do? In the letter, Spurlock reveals he had a sexual encounter in college that ended with his female partner claiming rape. He and this girl were drinking all night, they went back to his room, kissed and fooled around a bit, but she stopped things and stated she did not want to have sex.

“Then we laid in the bed and talked and laughed some more, and then began fooling around again. We took off our clothes. She said she didn’t want to have sex, so we laid together, and talked, and kissed, and laughed, and then we started having sex. And then she started to cry. I didn’t know what to do. We stopped having sex and I rolled beside her. I tried to comfort her. To make her feel better. I thought I was doing ok, I believed she was feeling better. She believed she was raped.”

And then eight years ago, Spurlock settled a sexual harassment allegation at his office. He called his personal assistant “hot pants” and “sex pants,” when he needed her assistance. In the moment, he believed it was funny, but then realized he “had completely demeaned and belittled her to a place of non-existence.”

When she quit, she threatened if he didn’t pay her a settlement, she would tell everyone…

“Being who I was, it was the last thing I wanted, so of course, I paid. I paid for peace of mind. I paid for her silence and cooperation. Most of all, I paid so I could remain who I was. I am part of the problem.”

And finally, he admits to cheating on his wife and every girlfriend he’s ever had. He claims to have a severe drinking problem, revealing he started drinking at 13 and hasn’t stopped for more than a week in 30 years..
