About (((Harvey Weinstein)))

Harvey Weinstein was born in the Flushing section of the New York City borough of Queens, to a Jewish family. His parents were Max Weinstein (1924–1976), a diamond cutter, and Miriam (née Postel; 1926–2016). He grew up with his younger brother, Bob Weinstein, in a housing co-op named Electchester in New York City. He graduated from John Bowne High School and the University at Buffalo. Weinstein, his brother Bob, and Corky Burger independently produced rock concerts as Harvey & Corky Productions in Buffalo through most of the 1970s.

Harvey Weinstein (/ˈwnstn/ WYNE-steen), CBE (born March 19, 1952) is an American film producer and former film studio executive. He and his brother Bob Weinstein co-founded Miramax, which produced several popular independent films including Pulp Fiction, Clerks, The Crying Game, and Sex, Lies, and Videotape. Weinstein won an Academy Award for producing Shakespeare in Love, and garnered seven Tony Awards for producing a variety of winning plays and musicals, including The Producers, Billy Elliot the Musical, and August: Osage County.

Weinstein and his brother Bob were co-chairmen of The Weinstein Company from 2005 to 2017. In October 2017, following numerous allegations of sexual harassment, sexual assault and rape against him, he was fired by his company’s board of directors, and expelled from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Everything you need to know about Hollywood and why you should boycott it

After deliberating for five days, a jury convicted Weinstein on February 24, 2020 of two of five criminal charges: one count of criminal sexual assault in the first degree and one count of rape in the third degree. The jury found him not guilty regarding predatory sexual assault, which could have led to a life sentence. He was remanded to jail at Rikers Island in New York City pending his sentencing hearing on March 11, when he was sentenced to 23 years in prison. He is serving his sentence at Wende Correctional Facility. He has said through his attorneys that he would appeal the verdict.

Weinstein still faces a criminal trial in Los Angeles.

In March 2020, while incarcerated in Wende Correctional Facility in western New York during the COVID-19 pandemic, Weinstein tested positive for COVID-19. He reportedly did not show symptoms of the disease, was placed in isolation at the prison and on April 1, 2020 was stated to be recovering.
