Hollywood producer Weinstein found guilty in sexual assault trial

NEW YORK (AP) — Harvey Weinstein has been convicted at his New York City sexual assault trial.

He was found guilty on two of the five counts.

The landmark reckoning for the former movie producer comes after years of whispers exploded into a torrent of sexual misconduct allegations that ended his reign in Hollywood and gave rise to the #MeToo movement.

The jury’s verdict followed three weeks of testimony that included harrowing accounts of rapes, forced oral sex, groping, masturbation, lewd propositions and casting-couch excuses from Weinstein.
