(This story was first published on 12 March 2020. It has been republished from The Quint's archives in the light of Harvey Weinstein's extradition to California to face similar rape charges.)

All-powerful Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein was sentenced to 23 years in prison for rape and sexual assault in March 2020. It was a sight that Weinstein’s multitude of accusers thought they would never see.

The conviction, however, comes after a prolonged two-year battle, since 2017, marking a landmark event in the #MeToo movement.

Counted among the most successful filmmakers in Hollywood, Weinstein was convicted on two counts – criminal sex act for the 2006 assault on the production assistant and rape in the third degree for the 2013 attack on another woman.

Here’s how the case unfolded – from The New York Times’ report on 5 October 2017 to the sentencing on 11 March 2020.
