    Weinstein is presently in an outside hospital where he will remain until sentencing.

    Weinstein has the means to have his lawyers continually breaking the dept of corrections balls and the courts. They will relentlessly claim hes too ill to be in prison and demand he be taken to an outside hospital, the dept of corrections will capitulate to avoid lawsuits and it will go on and on while they appeal and put in brief after brief and continuances and anything else they can think of.

    People with no means sit in a cell
    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    GROUCHO MARX,

    I stand corrected on the use of coerce. The basis of the statement remains.

    Unlike his likeness in the Whitehouse, probably uncomfortable and wishing he had run.

    I doubt he will get the maximum sentence and he was not found guilty on the more serious charges. This was not a worst-case scenario and he would have been prepared for it. He probably thinks he can appeal but also probably knows he's kind of $#@!ed.

    Given the type of conviction and his high profile, he'll probably be put into solitary or into a prison unit for sex offenders where his crimes seem less heinous.

    I'm not sure I buy that he actually raped anyone. I think it's more likely that what he engaged in was a glorified form of prostitution. A lot of these women accepted his advances for the fame and the money.

    He is facing charges in California too.

    So they are lying? 90+ women have come out and said they were assaulted in one form or fashion. Some rape, some assault. Are they all prostitutes?

    Many of them also kept in contact with him after the rape and assault.
    Conscientiously believing that the proper condition of the negro is slavery, or a complete subjection to the white man, and entertaining the belief that the day is not distant when the old Union will be restored with slavery nationally declared to be the proper condition of all of African descent, and in view of the future harmony and progress of all the States of America, I have been induced to issue this address, so that there may be no misunderstanding in the future

    I don't know if I would call them prostitutes, but after listening to the testimonies, it appeared as if they were seeking to become actresses. What do you call someone that trades sex or sexual acts for favors?
