By a Los Angeles court, Harvey Weinstein was convicted guilty of rape.

By a Los Angeles court, Harvey Weinstein was convicted guilty of rape.

An Italian woman was raped in Los Angeles in 2013 by an imprisoned former Hollywood tycoon, who now faces a second 24-year term.

Disgraced A jury in Los Angeles, California, found Hollywood film producer Harvey Weinstein guilty of rape and two counts of sexual assault against an Italian actress and model known as Jane Doe 1.

The three guilty counts on Monday represent the second conviction of the infamous face of the #MeToo movement in the United States after a slew of sexual abuse allegations surfaced five years ago. The trial lasted a month, and there were nine days of deliberations. On Monday, the jury also exonerated the 70-year-old or was unable to decide in the instances of the other three accusers.

Weinstein was found guilty of sex crimes by a New York City court and is currently serving a 23-year jail sentence.

Jane Doe 1 said in a statement released immediately after the verdict on Monday that "Harvey Weinstein irrevocably shattered a part of me that night in 2013 and I will never get that back."

"The criminal trial was horrific, and Weinstein's attorneys tortured me while I was testifying, but I knew I had to see this through, and I did. In his lifetime, I hope Weinstein never leaves his cage," she remarked.

On the counts on which he was found guilty, Weinstein faces up to 18 years in jail; however, aggravating circumstances may push that number up to 24 years.

Lawyers will return to court on Tuesday to deliver arguments related to aggravating factors.
