Harvey Weinstein Leaving Hospital & Going to Rikers Island Prison

Harvey Weinstein is finally going to jail.

The 67-year-old convicted sex offender and now disgraced producer has been at Bellevue Hospital in New York City after he was found guilty on two counts of sexual assault and third-degree rape in New York City today (February 24). He had a heart procedure to reduce a blockage this week, but is now being transferred to Rikers Island.

Originally, it was being reported that Weinstein would not be going to prison and would remain in the hospital until his sentencing.

Specifically, he will be held at North Infirmary Command, the jail’s medical facility, Variety reports. He is awaiting sentencing in his case, which will take place on March 11. He faces up to 29 years in prison for his crimes.
