BREAKING: Harvey Weinstein found Guilty of Rape and Sexual Assault in New York Trial

The former king of Hollywood has been found guilty of sexual assault at his trial in New York.

The verdict followed weeks of often harrowing and excruciatingly graphic testimony from a string of accusers who told of the various instances when Weinstein assaulted them, availing of the power which he had to make or break film careers.

The conviction was seen as a long-overdue reckoning for Weinstein after years of whispers about his behaviour turned into a torrent of accusations in 2017 that destroyed his career and gave rise to #MeToo, the global movement to encourage women to come forward and hold powerful men accountable for their sexual misconduct.

The jury of seven men and five women took five days to find him guilty.
