If I understand correctly the absolute minimum he will be getting is five years?

From the article:

"Weinstein was found guilty of a criminal sexual act and third-degree rape... Weinstein faces up to four years in prison on the rape charge, and between five and 25 years for the criminal sexual act charge."

Weinstein must be sentenced to a mandatory minimum of 5 years. Jenna's Law applies to these offenses, so he must serve 85% of the sentence before he will be eligible for parole."

Good. It’s cases like this that highlight that it’s not just the “ordinary” person that’s horribly effected by these predators. That the rich and famous are still targets in their own rights.

With the judicial system of America being held in high regard when it comes to prison terms, I hope he spends the rest of his life inside and sets an example to the other predators in the celebrity world, who believe themselves untouchable due to their status!
