A New York jury found Weinstein guilty on two counts Monday, including third degree rape and a first-degree criminal sexual act. While the verdict has been hailed as a victory for the MeToo movement not all the charges stuck. Weinstein was acquitted on two heavier charges of predatory sexual assault. With the trial in New York over, attention now turns to charges he faces in Los Angeles. Two women allege he attacked them in Beverly Hills hotels back in 2013. So, how might the New York verdict affect his trial here? We get some answers from Laurie Levenson. She’s a former federal prosecutor, now a professor of law at Loyola Law School.
