Disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein was sentenced to 23 years in prison on Wednesday (March 11) for rape and sexual assault. His accusers cried together in the front row of the courtroom as the sentence was read, while Weinstein addressed the court to show remorse.

He stated, “I really feel remorse for this situation. I feel it deeply in my heart. I will spend my time really caring and really trying to be a better person. I’m not going to say that these aren’t great people. I’ve had wonderful times with these people.”

67-year-old Weinstein faced between five and 29 years for last month’s convictions on first-degree criminal sexual act and third-degree rape. Judge James Burke sentenced Weinstein to 20 years in prison for first-degree criminal sex act and 3 years in prison for third-degree rape. He was ordered 5 years of supervision after his release.
