While convicted rapist Harvey Weinstein waits to hear how many years he’ll spend in prison, he’ll be living at the one of the most notorious jail complexes in the United States — Rikers Island.
Weinstein, 67, faces a minimum of five years and a maximum of more than two decades in prison. His lawyers say he will appeal.
Weinstein has been working with a consultant in recent months to prepare him for prison, according to his spokesperson. But Rikers — with its reputation for maltreatment — will be a far cry from the red carpet for the disgraced movie mogul.
On his way to Rikers Island after his conviction February 24, Weinstein suffered chest pains, heart palpitations and high blood pressure. He was rerouted to Bellevue Hospital, his attorney Donna Rotunno said.
