There are only two prosecutors in the Weinstein case, which means that the civil court agreement is the only means of justice for many of the women who have accused Weinstein of her own abuse.
Weinstein did not plead guilty to any of the crimes.
Plazto wrote in December 2019 that Weinstein, producer of Pulp Fiction and Sin City, whose case sparked the #MeToo movement against sexual violence, is due to face a criminal trial in January, which could put him behind bars for life.
Weinstein has been confessed to six women in court, but charges are being counted against two women (Jessica Mann and Miriam «Mimi» Haley).
A jury of seven men and five women found him guilty of rape and sexual harassment. The Sun now announces that Weinstein could face up to 25 years in prison.
The jury requested that the decision also take into account the allegations made by Annabella Sciorra, who allegedly raped Weinstein in the 1990s.
In December 2019, Weinstein reached an agreement with dozens of women accusing him of sexual harassment and rape. She pays women a total of $ 25 million ($ 22.5 million).
Weinstein has been accused of being a well-known actress in sexual violence, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek and Lea Seydoux.
