Harvey Weinstein Tests Positive for Coronavirus in Prison
Convicted rapist and former Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein has tested positive for the novel coronavirus, weeks after beginning his prison sentence.
A New York law enforcement source tells E! News, "Harvey tested positive for Coronavirus yesterday.
He is currently in quarantine at the facility." In February, a New York jury found the 68-year-old guilty of sexually assaulting a former production assistant and raping a former aspiring actress.
He was sentenced to 23 years in prison.
On March 11, he was taken to Rikers Island jail.
On Wednesday, March 18, he was transferred to Wende Correctional Facility, a maximum security prison in the town of Alden in upstate New York.
