Movie mogul and convicted felon Harvey Weinstein, during his trial for sexual assault.

More than two years after the first allegations against him emerged, Harvey Weinstein was convicted of committing a criminal sex act in the first degree involving one woman, H., in 2006 and rape in the third degree involving another, M., in 2013. He was acquitted of the two more serious charges of predatory sexual assault involving at least two women (H. and S., and M. and S, respectively) and one count of first-degree rape (M.).
