Disgraced After nearly two years in California, where he was prosecuted and found guilty of raping an Italian actress and model, Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein has returned to the New York prison system.

According to state prison officials, Weinstein will be detained at the Mohawk Correctional Facility in Rome, New York, following his December 2022 conviction in Los Angeles for the rape and sexual assault counts that followed his February 2020 conviction in New York.

Weinstein was completing his New York sentence at the Wende Correctional Facility near Buffalo when he was extradited to California in 2021.

On April 5, Weinstein was flown back to New York. Upon considering Weinstein’s treatment and program requirements, the state Department of Corrections and Community Supervision decided to send him to the medium-security Mohawk institution in central New York, according to a department representative.

Before several women came forward with allegations of rape, abuse, and sexual harassment against him starting in 2017, Weinstein, who co-founded the production business Miramax with his brother Bob, was one of the movie industry’s most influential executives. Well-known actors like Annabella Sciorra and Ashley Judd were among those who accused him.

Following his conviction in New York for raping and assaulting two women, Weinstein received a 23-year prison term as well as an additional 16 years for his Los Angeles conviction.

According to his attorneys, the 71-year-old Weinstein has a number of health difficulties, including heart problems, diabetes, sleep apnea, and eye troubles.

According to Juda Engelmayer, a representative for Weinstein, “it was our expectation that he would have been returned to Wende CF where he was previously in protective custody and where all the doctors who treated his very serious medical ailments and deteriorating eyesight are located.”
