BREAKING: Harvey Weinstein is found guilty of a criminal sexual act and rape, but acquitted on the more serious charge of predatory sexual assault

Harvey Weinstein was found guilty Monday of committing a criminal sex act in the first degree involving one woman and rape in the third degree involving another woman.

The disgraced movie mogul faces a minimum of five years and a maximum of 29 years in prison. He was handcuffed and taken into custody after the verdict.A New York jury acquitted Weinstein, 67, on the more serious charges of predatory sexual assault involving the two women, Miriam Haley and Jessica Mann.These are the women who testified against Harvey WeinsteinIn doing so, jurors indicated that they did not find beyond a reasonable doubt that Weinstein had also raped actress Annabella Sciorra, another alleged victim whose testimony prosecutors used in an attempt to establish Weinstein's predatory behavior.Jurors deliberated for more than 26 hours over five days before reaching a verdict Monday morning. A motion for a mistrial by the defense earlier Monday was denied. Read MoreIt's not clear how many years in prison Weinstein faces, as sentencing will happen at a later date. For the charge of criminal sex act in the first degree, he faces a minimum of five years and a maximum of 25 years in prison. How the charges in Harvey Weinstein's trial workFor the charge of rape in the third degree, he essentially faces no minimum prison time and a maximum of four years.At least 13 officers came into the courtroom before the verdict was read and surrounded the room. When the verdict was read, jurors looked around the courtroom. They did not appear to look at Weinstein and may have been avoiding making eye contact with anyone. Following the verdict, jurors were removed to the jury room along with the judge, one member of the defense team and one member of the prosecution.Jurors were questioned about letters the parties received prior to today that suggested juror misconduct. Judge James Burke acknowledged in court he believes the letters are fraudulent. At one point, he called them a prank. Shortly afterward the judge said the jury will be dismissed.But Weinstein's criminal cases aren't over. He also faces charges of sexual assault and rape in separate incidents in Los Angeles.How the case unfoldedWeinstein was charged with first-degree criminal sexual act, two counts of rape and two counts of predatory sexual assault.

Told you he’d “creep”! Great so he's now qualified to be on the supreme court Wut? Convicted of rape, but NOT a predator? Wut? White privilege at it again. Like Trump's 'impeached' stain, Weinstein is 'rapist' and 'convicted' forever. Die in prison. Justice! You do realize dudes ain’t gonna stop being dudes

Harvey Weinstein has been found guilty on some charges against him in a New York court. Here's the breakdown of each count:

Harvey Weinstein Found Guilty In Rape TrialOnce a powerful Hollywood mogul, Weinstein was forced to face his accusers in open court and hear their stories of assault.

Is it some kind of bad omen for individual no.1, that Weinstein was found guilty of sexual assault against a woman named Jessica? Jessica Drake, Jessica Leeds should be happy that a Jessica has been vindicated in a sexual assault case, and this must send chills down No.1's spine. Are these state charges ie parole eligible, or federal charges (no parole)?

He can put the walker away, stand up straight n stop acting like he's Bill Cosby now. I hope he ends up broke n homeless but don't worry Harvey! under Bernie Sanders, we'll ALL have 2 take care of u when ur released but if u donate 2 Trump, he'll go ahead n pardon you beforehand. If only the media had the guts to report on these stories, known for decades. Qanon

somebody better check on how roman polanski and kevin spacey doing today? He needs to be locked up. Verdict proves you can't always buy your way out of trouble but will his wealth have an impact on his sentencing ? Sorry not sorry I bet the piece of shit walked out of court just fine when he knew he's going to jail

Now get him into a cell!!!

Harvey Weinstein found guilty of third degree rape, escapes predatory sexual assault convictionHarvey Weinstein, 67, was indicted in May 2018, was charged with five sex-crimes, including rape and predatory sexual assault, involving two women. How much prison time will he get? I'll bet none. KarenHugersMole This is a Joke! Remember the survivors. Metoo HarveyWeinstein

I knew there was some way CNN would have to try to make this sound not so bad, because they love Pigstein. Shame on you . You convicted an innocent man. Not good enough...he should be guilty of all 5 counts. WTF!!! Kind of ironic that the verdict comes in on the same day as Kobe Bryant's memorial.... Casting Couch,

Rapist in chief pardon him yet? Harvey Weinstein found guilty of a criminal sexual act and rape, but acquitted on other serious charges of predatory assault. Justice for some, but not all. 3..2..1.. minutes before Trump says Harvey Weinstein was treated 'unfairly' and prepares to pardon this man. That's how Democracy works now. If you are a rich criminal & loyal to Trump you get a Pardon no matter how heinous you crime!
