Weinstein was convicted Monday (Tuesday NZT) of rape and sexual assault against two women – he could now be sent to prison for decades.
“The words he said over and over again to me is, ‘I’m innocent, I’m innocent, I’m innocent. How could this happen in America,'” Weinstein’s attorney Arthur Aidala told Variety and other reporters, outside the courthouse.
How it happens is simple. The women who were raped and assaulted went to the Police. The Police recommended charges to the District Attorney. The DA laid charges. A trial was held and a jury found you guilty after hearing all the facts.
It’s a good day when wealth and power doesn’t mean you’re above the law.
