Harvey Weinstein was (finally) convicted of rape and sentenced to 23 years in prison in New York. Because 2020 decided to drop a few crumbs of decency into our laps, Harvey also got charged with sex crimes in Los Angeles. Unfortunately, thanks to coronavirus Harvey will not be facing justice just yet, but then again–Harvey also did contract coronavirus so…
While Harvey recovered from coronavirus, despite his slew of alleged health issues, the Los Angeles justice system has not seen such a quick turnaround. On March 11, the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office said it started the extradition process of getting Harvey from his cell at Wende Correctional in Upstate New York to Los Angeles for another episode of Please Feel Sorry For The Convicted Rapist! But with coronavirus locking everything down, they’ve had no luck. Greg Risling, a spokesman for the LA District Attorney’s Office, said (via Page Six):
“The virus has delayed the processing of the extradition paperwork. There is no time estimate on when he will appear in a Los Angeles courtroom.”
Harvey has been charged in Los Angeles with two counts of sexual battery by restraint, forcible rape, and forcible oral copulation and sexual penetration. The complaints come from three women: an Italian model who alleged he attacked her in February 2013, Lauren Young who says she was attacked the day after the model, and a third woman who alleges he attacked her in May 2010. Harvey’s lawyers are also working on an appeal for his conviction in NYC.
Looks like Harvey Weinstein is the only sex criminal who is using coronavirus as a reason to stay where he is. But if law enforcement is afraid that the oozing virus that is Harvey is going to possibly spread coronavirus by traveling, they should hit up Madonna to help them out in the name of justice. You know, since she’s immune and apparently has access to a jet.
