Weinstein will spend 23 years in a New York State prison after being sentenced by Supreme Court Judge James Burke.

Justice has been served, as fallen Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein has been ordered to serve 23 years in prison.

The pictures additionally included a smiling Weinstein - who received a Finest Image Oscar for "Shakespeare in Love" - at film premieres and the amfAR Gala, and posing alongside his now-ex-wife Georgina Chapman at Paris Vogue Week. Before the sentence was handed right down to him, he reportedly addressed the courtroom by saying, "I really feel remorse for this situation". I feel it deeply in my heart. "You have made a huge leap forward for all women with this victory".

67-year-old Weinstein, who was once one of Hollywood's most powerful figures, was convicted of the first-degree criminal sexual act last month, based on the testimony of Miriam Haley, and rape in the third degree, based on the testimony of one-time aspiring actress Jessica Mann.

He appeared in 51 games with 45 starts in New England, making 221 tackles, 16.5 sacks, two interceptions and five forced fumbles. Van Noy, who turns 29 on March 26, was an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his National Football League career.

The verdict by the NY jury was hailed as a turning point in the widespread #MeToo movement which found exposure following sexual-abuse allegations against Weinstein.

He was found not guilty of three other charges, including two counts of predatory sexual assault, which carried a potential life sentence.

The former movie producer visited the courtroom on a wheelchair for the sentencing, as reported by BBC. In the meantime, Weinstein's lawyers are also expected to appeal the ruling this summer, although it seems doubtful they'll be successful in having his sentence shortened.

Inside hours of Weinstein's condemning, investigators in Los Angeles declared they were starting the removal procedure to bring him there for an arraignment on charges he assaulted a lady and explicitly ambushed another in 2013.
