Hollywood’s Harvey Weinstein has just been convicted of rape and criminal sexual assault.

He will serve no less than five years and up to 25 years in prison.

The case is being called a landmark case in the #MeToo movement, where several women testified about Weinstein’s predatory behavior.

Weinstein was convicted of rape in the third degree in the case of Jessica Mann (pictured below). She was an aspiring actress when Weinstein raped her.

The second charge Weinstein was convicted of was for criminal sexual assault in the case of former production assistant Mimi Haylayi (pictured below) for forced oral sex.

#MeToo activists calling themselves ‘The Silencebreakers’ say they were “disappointed” that Weinstein was only convicted of two of the five charges. Those two were the least serious charges against Weinstein, but he could spend up to 25 years in jail.
