Hollywood producer turned sexual predator Harvey Weinstein was convicted of rape and sexual assault by a Manhattan jury Monday as his long-awaited day of #MeToo reckoning finally arrived.

Manhattan prosecutors accused Weinstein of raping aspiring actress Jessica Mann in 2013 and sexually assaulting his former production assistant Miriam Haley in 2006, with both women taking the stand to testify against him. Four other accusers, including Emmy-nominated actress Annabella Sciorra of “The Sopranos,” testified in excruciating detail about their unwanted sexual encounters with Weinstein as prosecutors presented the jury with evidence of an alleged pattern of horrific behavior.

Weinstein was found guilty of third-degree rape and criminal sexual act in the first degree but acquitted on the top two counts of predatory sexual assault and first-degree rape. The predatory sexual assault charge could have gotten him life in prison.
