The 67-year-old disgraced movie mogul faced the judge Wednesday at his sentencing, and even spoke briefly. Several of his accusers, including the women who testified against him, were in the court as well.
Model Tarale Wulff was there … so was Annabella Sciorra, Lauren Young and Jessica Mann, just to name a few. Seems his accusers wanted to see the guy one last time before he hits the slammer for a good while. It certainly made for some good courtroom drama.
Before the sentence was announced, Weinstein directly addressed his accusers in court, saying, “I have great remorse for all of you. I have great remorse for all women.”
Oddly, Weinstein also said he was “totally confused” and continued, “I think men are confused about all of this … this feeling of thousands of men and women who are losing due process, I’m worried about this country. This is not the right atmosphere in the United States of America.”
He also said, “If I had to do a lot of things over I would care less about movies and more about my children and my family.”
Weinstein went on to admit he was unfaithful to both of his ex-wives and apologized to them.
He wrapped up his statement with, “I really feel remorse for this situation. I feel it deeply in my heart.”
As we reported, Weinstein’s lawyers begged for mercy earlier this week, asking the judge to sentence him to 5 years because — among other things — he has no prior criminal record, and his life and career had already been destroyed.
His legal team also pointed to huge charitable contributions, including millions for 9/11 firefighters and police officers.
It didn’t work. (LoveBScott)
