  • LANDSCAPE OF SURVIVALS,

  • SURVIVORS OF SEXUAL ASSAULT.

  • NOT ONLY BRAVE BUT HEROIC IN

  • THEIR TESTIMONY.

  • WE HAVE BEEN THERE BASICALLY

  • FROM THE FIRST WEEK OF THE

  • TRIAL.

  • CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THE MOOD?

  • Reporter: I DO NOT THINK I

  • HAVE EVER BEEN IN A MORE SILENT

  • ROOM.

  • YOU COULD JUST HEAR THE TYPING

  • ON KEYPADS.

  • JOURNALISTS FROM ALL OVER THE

  • WORLD HERE.

  • THE COURTROOM WAS PACKED MOSTLY

  • WITH JOURNALISTS, THERE WERE

  • SOME PEOPLE HERE ON THE SIDE OF

  • HARVEY WEINSTEIN AND ON THE

  • PROSECUTION SIDE IN THE BACK

  • TWO ROWS MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC.

  • WE DID NOT NOTICE ANY OF THE

  • WOMEN WHO TESTIFIED HERE TODAY.

  • BUT WE ARE SURE THERE ARE

  • PAYING CLOSE ATTENTION.

  • HE WAS FOUND NOT GUILTY OF

  • PREDATORY SEXUAL ASSAULT.

  • THAT WAS THE TOP CHARGE AGAINST

  • HIM, FACING UP TO LIFE IN

  • PRISON.

  • THEY DOUBTED THE TESTIMONY OF

  • ANNABELLA SCIORRA.

  • THEY HAVE SENT NUMEROUS NOTES

  • TO THE JUDGE REQUESTING REBACK

  • OF TESTIMONY REGARDING

  • ANNABELLA SCIORRA.

  • THEY WANTED REBACK FROM ROSIE

  • PEREZ WHO TESTIFIED THAT

  • ANNABELLA TOLD HER ABOUT THE

  • ALLEGED RAPE THAT HAPPENED IN

  • THE EARLY 90s.

  • HE WAS FOUND GUILTY OF CRIMINAL

  • SEXUAL ACTS FOR MIMI HALEYI.

  • SHE SAYS IN 2006 HE FORCED A

  • SEX ACT ON HER.

  • THIS SHOWS THE JURY BELIEVED

  • HER FOR THIS ONE.

  • HE WAS ALSO FOUND NOT GUILTY OF

  • RAPE IN THE FIRST DEGREE BUT

  • FOUND GUILTY OF RAPE IN THE

  • THIRD DEGREE RELATING TO

  • JESSICA MANN.

  • THEY ASKED FOR TESTIMONY

  • REGARDING MIMI HALEYI AS WELL

  • AS ANNABELLA SCIORRA.

  • THEY DID NOT ASK FOR ANY

  • REBACK, EVIDENCE OR TESTIMONY

  • PRESENTED AT TRIAL REGARDING

  • JESSICA MANN.

  • IT SOUNDED LIKE THEY HAD THEIR

  • MINDS MADE UP ABOUT HER RATHER

  • QUICKLY.

  • WHEN THE VERDICT WAS READ,

  • RIGHT BEFORE, WE GOT A NOTE

  • FROM THE JURY SAYING WE THE

  • JURY, HAVE REACHED A VERDICT.

  • A LOT OF SCRAMBLING WAS GOING

  • ON YOU HAD ABOUT 15 COURT

  • OFFICERS ENTER THE COURTROOM

  • BLOCKING THE ENTRANCES REALLY

  • OUTLINING THE ENTIRE COURTROOM

  • SHOULD ANYTHING GET DISRUPTED.

  • IT WAS UTTER SILENCE WHEN THEY

  • READ THE VERDICT.

  • IT WAS DIFFICULT TO SEE WHAT

  • HARVEY WEINSTEIN'S REACTION

  • WAS.

  • HE HAD ABOUT THREE COURT

  • OFFICERS SURROUNDED HIM.

  • THE PROSECUTION WANTED HIM TO

  • BE REMANDED IMMEDIATELY.

  • THE DEFENSE WAS ARGUING HE IS

  • AN AND WILL MAN UNDER THE CARE

  • OF DOCTORS WITH A MONITORING

  • BRACELET.

  • THEY ARGUED FOR HOUSE ARREST

  • THEY SAY HE NEEDS TO SEE

  • DOCTORS.

  • THE JUDGE HAD HIM TAKEN INTO

  • CUSTODY.

  • HE WILL BE SENTENCED MARCH 11.

  • WE SAW HIM STRUGGLE, THE

  • OFFICERS WERE NOT QUITE SURE

  • HOW TO HELP HIM UP.

  • THE JUDGE THAT HE WOULD MAKE

  • SURE HE WAS PUT INTO AN

  • INFIRMARY WHERE HE'S BEING

  • PLACED BEHIND BARS.

  • WE COULD NOT SEE ANY REACTION

  • FROM HIM.

  • IN TALKING TO SOME OF HIS

  • DEFENSE ATTORNEYS EARLIER TODAY

  • WHILE WE WERE WAITING, SOME OF

  • THEM APPEARED TO BE NERVOUS.

  • WHEN HE ENTERED THE COURTROOM

  • HALLWAY USUALLY HE SAYS HIS

  • TYPICAL GOOD MORNING.

  • WE DO NOT GET MUCH OF A

  • REACTION.

  • HE DID NOT APPEAR TO BE NERVOUS

  • OR UPSET ANYTHING LIKE THAT.

  • HE JUST WALKED INTO THE

  • COURTROOM NOT SURE IF HE HAD

  • ANY IDEA OF WHAT WOULD AWAIT

  • HIM TODAY.

  • HE HAS BEEN TAKEN INTO CUSTODY

  • AND WE WILL FIND OUT HIS

  • SENTENCING ON MARCH 11.

  • HE WAS NOT CONVICTED, FOUND NOT

  • GUILTY OF PREDATORY SEX ASSAULT

  • WHICH WAS THE TOP CHARGE

  • PUTTING HIM IN JAIL FOR UP TO

  • LIFE.

  • THE CRIMINAL SEXUAL ACT IN THE

  • FIRST DEGREE IS A MINIMUM OF

  • FIVE YEARS AND A MAXIMUM OF 25

  • YEARS.

  • AS FOR RAPE IN THE THIRD

  • DEGREE, THE MAXIMUM IS FOUR

  • YEARS.

  • HE IS FACING UP TO 25 YEARS IN

  • PRISON.

  • MARCH 11 IS WHEN WE WILL FIND

  • OUT HOW LONG HE WILL FACE.

  • HE ALSO FACES CHARGES IN LOS

  • ANGELES ONCE HE IS FINISHED IN

  • MANHATTAN.

  • YOU ASKED HARVEY WEINSTEIN

  • IF HE WAS WORRIED.

  • COUPLE OF CHARGES AND THE

  • DEFENSE ATTORNEYS SEEMED

  • ACTUALLY SORT OF PLEASED WHEN

  • THEY SAW THAT NO BUT ANYTHING

  • COULD HAPPEN AND I THINK IF YOU

  • TALK TO ANYONE WHO IS SITTING

  • IN THAT COURTROOM AS A

  • SPECTATOR AND LISTENING TO THE

  • TRIAL, A LOT OF PEOPLE WERE

  • SURPRISED TO HEAR THAT THE JURY

  • WAS STUCK ON ANNABELLA C ORRIS

  • TESTIMONY THAT THEY HAD DOUBTS

  • ABOUT THAT.

  • SO THIS VERDICT IS A LITTLE

  • SURPRISING IN THAT SENSE.

  • BECAUSE PEOPLE WERE NOT

  • NECESSARILY EXPECTING IT TO GO

  • THAT WAY BUT AGAIN, YOU NEVER

  • KNOW WHAT THE JURY IS THINKING

  • AND WE ARE HOPING TO CATCH UP

  • WITH SOME OF THE DRAWERS LATER

  • TODAY.

  • THEY DID GO INDIVIDUALLY AFTER

  • THE FOREMAN GAVE THE VERDICT.

  • DO YOU AGREE WITH THIS AND THEY

  • ALSO YES YES YES.

  • AND ALICE, JUST TO KIND OF

  • PLAY OFF OF WHAT YOU WERE

  • TALKING ABOUT THERE, WITH THE

  • LETTER BEING BROUGHT TO JUDGE

  • BURKE ON FRIDAY.

  • WHAT WE COULD BE HUNG ON THESE

  • CHARGES HERE.

  • YOU WERE IN THE COURTROOM.

  • LOTS OF LEGAL EXPERTS AND

  • WHATNOT.

  • DID ANYBODY HAVE ANY SENSE

  • WHICH WAY OR IF IT WAS 50-50

  • DOWN THE MIDDLE.

  • IT COULD GO THIS WAY ARE THAT

  • WAY.

  • IT WAS SILENT WHEN THE VERDICT.

  • THIS IS SOMETHING PEOPLE WE

  • THOUGHT WOULD PLAY OUT.

  • I THINK THERE ARE ALL KINDS

  • OF SCENARIOS THAT WE CAME UP

  • WITH AFTER THAT. THE VERDICT

  • SHE, IF YOU READ IT, WE HAVE IT

  • UP ON CBS NEW YORK.COM.

  • IT IS PRETTY CONFUSING AND THE

  • JURY WANTED LEGAL DEFINITIONS

  • LED TO THEM.

  • THEY WANTED THE CHARGES READ

  • THEM AGAIN BECAUSE THEY SEEM TO

  • BE STRUGGLING WITH HOW TO

  • PROCEED ON THE VERDICT SHEET

  • AND WHAT EXACTLY EVERYTHING

  • MEANT.

  • WHAT COMES TO RED IN THE 1st

  • DEGREE OR 3rd DEGREE.

  • OBVIOUSLY THEY WANTED

  • DEFINITIONS ON CONSENT AND

  • OTHER LEGAL DEFINITIONS

  • REGARDING TO THE CHARGES THERE.

  • SO BACK TO FRIDAY WHEN THEY

  • SAID THAT NO, SO MANY PEOPLE

  • HAD DIFFERENT OPINIONS AS TO

  • WHERE IT WOULD GO.

  • PEOPLE WERE SAYING, IT SOUNDS

  • LIKE THEY ARE DOUBTING

  • ANNABELLA SCIORRA'S TESTIMONY

  • AND THAT IS CERTAINLY ACTUALLY

  • WHAT PLAYED OUT HERE.

  • IN THAT NO, THEY SAID FRIDAY

  • THAT WHAT IF WE ARE UNANIMOUS

  • ON THE OTHER CHARGES.

  • AND SO NOW WE KNOW WHAT THEY

  • CAN TO ON THE OTHER CHARGES.

  • SO, AGAIN, A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE

  • SHOCKED WITH HOW THIS WENT

  • BECAUSE ANNABELLA SCIORRA

  • SEEMED PRETTY CREDIBLE.

  • ROSIE PEREZ IS TESTIMONY

  • SEEMED PRETTY CREDIBLE AND WHEN

  • YOU COMPARE HER TO SOME OF THE

  • OTHER WOMEN.

  • JESSICA MAN GOT ON THE STAND

  • AND WHEN IT CAME TO HER RED

  • THAT SHE SAYS HAPPEN IN 2013,

  • HE WAS FOUND GUILTY ON THAT BUT

  • WHEN SHE TESTIFIED, SHE SAID

  • SHE WAS SO EMBARRASSED SHE

  • DIDN'T TELL THE TWO PEOPLE SHE

  • WAS WITH ON THE TRIP OUT OF

  • EMBARRASSMENT AND THE DEFENSE

  • CALLED THE TWO PEOPLE.

  • HER FORMER ROOM AND FORMER

  • FRIEND WAS UP THERE ON THE

  • STAND AND ONE OF HER AGENT

  • FRIENDS AND ONE OF THEM SAID WE

  • DIDN'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THIS

  • RED.

  • SO THERE WAS NO FORENSIC

  • EVIDENCE IN THE CASE.

  • NO DNA AND JURORS WERE GOING

  • OFF OF EMAILS SENT OFF OF

  • TESTIMONY.

  • THERE WAS REALLY NO SMOKING GUN

  • WHEN IT COMES TO THIS CASE AND

  • THIS IS WHAT THE JURY CAME UP

  • WITH.

  • THE MANHATTAN DA CALLING THE

  • FORMER MOVIE PRODUCER A VICIOUS

  • SERIAL SEXUAL PREDATOR AND WE

  • UNDERSTAND HE HAS BEEN TAKING

  • OUT OF A SIDE DOOR WITH HIS

  • HANDS CUFFED IN FRONT OF HIM.

  • AND I WAS WONDERING IF YOU HAVE

  • HEARD FROM THE DEFENSE OF ALL

  • AND WHETHER THEY ARE

  • CONSIDERING AN APPEAL?

  • I HAVE NOT HEARD FROM HIM

  • YET.

  • I THINK THEY ARE TRYING TO MAKE

  • SENSE OF WHAT HAPPENED.

  • I KNOW OVER THE WEEKEND THEY

  • WERE GOING WITH ALL KINDS OF

  • POSSIBILITIES.

  • WE ASKED HARVEY WEINSTEIN, HE

  • DIDN'T ANSWER THAT QUESTION.

  • I IMAGINE THE FENCE WOULD

  • APPEAL BUT WE HAVE NOT FROM

  • THEM.

  • NOT SURE IF THEY COME OUT TO
