#Metoo: Court Convicts Harvey Weinstein, Guilty on Two of Five Counts

Former Hollywood producer, Harvey Weinstein has been found guilty of third-degree rape and a criminal sexual act in his high profile New York trial.

He was however not found not guilty of the two most serious counts of predatory sexual assault and also first-degree rape.

Flanked by court security officers, the disgraced producer did not react when the jury handed down their verdict on Monday during their fifth day of deliberations, after pleading not guilty to sexually assaulting former production assistant Mimi Haleyi in 2006 and raping aspiring actress Jessica Mann in 2013.

More to come.
