    Sorry - maybe should've posted on the HW thread. I forgot there was one.

    Good. Let's hope he is given the 25 years which seems to be the potential sentence.

    His pathetic "being disabled" act failed then.

    GOOD!

    I thought it was decided ages ago that he is guilty?

    Five days to reach a unanimous verdict on the lesser charges shows it was not so clear cut to the jury,

    But lets hope he's locked up for a very long time regardless.

    He's got more charges to face (in LA) first.

    Not particularly, although I am sure it will make some people happy.

    I do like to see criminals atone for their crimes, but how the BBC sees this news as being more important than the impending pandemic is beyond me!

    Edit. Channel 4 News too!

    In America powerful people like Weinstein invariably get away with their crimes.

    It's nice to see that in this instance he hasn't got away with all of them.

    I shall Google the degrees of rape but really... degrees? She (or indeed he) "slightly" asked for it? Didn't fight hard enough? (shades of Josey Wales)...

    That leaves just one more of Andy’s abuser pals who needs to face some long overdue justice.

    How do you mean? Juries are corrupt?
    Any examples?

    I'd go for thick rather than corrupt.

    It's a formalisation of aggrevating/mitigating circumstances that are used when sentencing in the UK.
