Annabella Sciorra Reacts To Harvey Weinstein's Guilty Verdict

Annabella Sciorra was one of the high profile testimonies during Harvey Weinstein‘s sexual assault case in New York City this month.

After hearing the verdict where he was charged with criminal sexual assault and third-degree rape, the 59-year-old actress reacted to the news and reflected on her own testimony, which he was acquitted of.

“My testimony was painful but necessary. I spoke for myself and with the strength of the 80-plus victims of Harvey Weinstein in my heart,” Annabella shared in a statement (via THR). “While we hope for continued righteous outcomes that bring absolute justice, we can never regret breaking the silence. For in speaking truth to power we pave the way for a more just culture, free of the scourge of violence against women.”

Rosie Perez, who testified in support of Annabella and confirmed her claims, tweeted about the guilty verdict as well.

“Harvey Weinstein has been handcuffed and taken to jail!” she wrote. “Gutted for my dear friend #AnnabellaSciorra who told the truth! Yet I congratulate her and all who came forward for their bravery. This is not enough but survivors take courage! This is still a great win!”
