Harvey Weinstein has been found guilty of rape and two counts of sexual assault against an Italian actress and model known as Jane Doe 1, by a jury in Los Angeles, says Aljazeera.

The 70-year old was charged with raping and sexually assaulting two women and committing sexual battery against two others. The report says the jury could not reach a verdict in the cases of three other accusers.

Weinstein who is already serving a 23-year prison sentence will now face up to 24-years in prison when he is sentenced. “Harvey Weinstein forever destroyed a part of me that night in 2013 and I will never get that back,” said Jane Doe 1 in a statement.

“The criminal trial was brutal and Weinstein’s lawyers put me through hell on the witness stand, but I knew I had to see this through to the end, and I did. I hope Weinstein never sees the outside of a prison cell during his lifetime.”
