#Metoo
#1
I was thinking about the Harvey Weinstein trial in the US.

23 years to serve on what I’d say was just “hearsay”. I saw an interview with his female defense attorney and she kept on saying how that number (23) was an abomination. She kept on repeating that.

I haven’t followed it too closely, but his defense attorney seemed to lay the blame for this on pressure groups like the #metoo movement.

7 men and 5 women on the jury so I guess it’s a fair outcome, but 23 years seems a bit much.

We'll never know the exact details, but it's fair to say that the media had set the "guilty" verdict many months before the trial..
