New York, NY - Convicted sexual predator Harvey Weinstein has tested positive for Coronvirus.

CNHI reports that Weinstein is believed to have had the virus when he entered the state prison system on Wednesday.

He is now being isolated at Wende Correctional Facility, WYFF reports.

Weinstein was convicted this month by a jury of criminal sexual act in the first degree and rape in the third degree, NBC News reported.

The judge sentenced the 68-year-old movie producer to 20 years for the first count and 3 years for the second count, to be served consecutively.

Weinstein was also ordered to register as a sex offender, NBC News reported.

Ahead of his sentencing, Weinstein made a statement about how he was worried about the country in the wake of the #MeToo movement.

He said he was worried that "thousands of men are losing due process" and said he thought he’d had legitimate relationships with his accusers, NBC News reported.

The lead prosecutor in the case, Joan Illuzzi-Orbon, told the judge Weinstein "would never have been stopped from hurting more lives” and deserved the maximum sentence.

"He has been using and abusing people his whole life," Illuzzi-Orbon said.

Weinstein’s attorney called the 23-year-sentence “obscene,” “obnoxious,” and “cowardly, NBC News reported.

Donna Rotunno said she was furious and that the sentence "did not speak to the evidence that came out at trial.”

If Weinstein survives, he will next be tried in Los Angeles where is he is facing four more counts of rape and sexual battery charges.

When I was 17 I was drugged and taken by a group of guys and assaulted over a period of hours. Then I was beaten and dumped in a ditch on the side of the highway. The police found the guys and even found several cameras that were used to take pictures of what they were doing and in the end I was told by the same police that I was lying and that i was lucky that they weren't going to charge me with criminal mischief and filing a false report. That has stayed with me all these years and now as a mother of a 12 year old daughter I find myself worrying about what her life could hold. After reading this article I finally have hope that not all police will drop the ball and there is hope for my daughter.

Hopefully his attorney gets it too. Not sure why he termed the sentence "cowardly", but this is his chance to show the world how "brave" he is, by sticking by his client.

What, you mean he isn't going to be released from prison because he is vulnerable. Isn't that what the democrats want? Releasing criminals into our midst when we are the most vulnerable ourselves?

@Supermom84 When the #MeToo movement first came about, I must admit to feeling a bit angry because long before those people came out, there was a whole host of us brave enough to speak up in a time when such things weren't talked about EVER! I'm a male and endured rape and incest which was reported to my mother who did absolutely nothing. My story of how I overcame my childhood is quite compelling and I've even spoken on it a couple of times and while people are encouraged, it makes it very hard to date because I'm "damaged" goods and women don't know how to deal with a man that's been raped so they just don't.

It's reported that Weinstein tested positive for COVID 19.
I think COVID 19 caught a case of Harvey Weinstein instead.

Karma. Amazing he didn't need that walker until he was finally going to trial. Like Cosby needed a cane and hanging onto his lawyer's arm while walking.
