Written by Adewale Adeyemi on December 20, 2022
Hollywood film mogul Harvey Weinstein has been found guilty of three counts of sexual assault, including rape, in Los Angeles.
The two-month trial heard how Weinstein used his influence to lure women into private meetings before attacking them.
The 70-year-old faces up to 24 years in prison when sentenced.
He is already serving 23 years in jail after he was convicted of rape and sexual assault at his first trial in New York two years ago.
Weinstein was found guilty on Monday of rape and two sexual assault charges involving an accuser known as Jane Doe 1, to protect her anonymity.
