I think Harvey W might get off in NY

Occasionally I surf over to Court TV (I cut the cable years ago and only have antenna and Internet these days.) I caught some of the defense's closing argument this afternoon. As you'd expect for a rich bastard, he's got a very good (female) attorney. Although I believe he's an evil serial sexual predator, the fact that the gals he raped maintained contact with him personalty and via email in order to keep their careers on track doesn't look good. Although I'm not an expert at determining what verdicts juries will reach (who is?) I can certainly see them not having "beyond a reasonable doubt."

We'll see...

1. i agree with you

if the actresses were trading sex for their glamorous careers it makes Weinstein a scumbag, but no worse criminal than the john in any prostitution bust.

2. I don't think it was quid pro quo per se

And that he did boink them against their will. But he had the power to make or break them and they chose to "ignore" it. They chose poorly.

9. lifetime partners?

for producers and other transactional thinkers, there is no "lifetime." once the deal is closed they are on to the next transaction.

5. That presumes a jury following the letter of the law rather then the spirit of the law

Under the letter of the law there is probably plenty of reasonable doubt for either a hung jury or a not guilty finding.

Under the spirit of the law they may ignore the reasonable doubt and find him guilty for being the POS he is because just about everyone believes the allegations even if they can't be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.
