I was legitimately shocked. And I’m not the only one — nearly every woman I know was expecting a “not guilty” verdict in his trial. Not because we weren’t fully convinced of his guilt or that there wasn’t an abundance of evidence, …
Weinstein’s case was far too high profile for a not guilty verdict. That was not ever going to happen. It was far too big for that.
I am disgusted that he was acquitted on the predatory sexual assault charge.
The charges of predatory sexual assault require proving he attacked at least two victims. He was found guilty of attacking two women. So… uh.. wtf?
The predatory sexual assault charge should have been a a done deal. But the jurors could not come to a unanimous decision and the court would not accept a hung jury. Guess which side caved. Same side that always caves.
