    For him that is a life sentencing. Let’s see how much more time Cali will give him.

    • @Joaquin Paul they are!!

    • I see why Weinstein chose her. He would not want to be with a woman that looks and sounds like a man.

      @Jay Torr lmao! If that’s the case Trump is really screwed when he hits the big house. Not only is he a predator and terrible speller but he didn’t give them a pardon when he had the chance. 😂

    • @Death To Ming! he will never go to prison… he’s got a great deal w da devil

      If you think this guy will be put in a normal prison like you and me, then you are deluded. This guy is one of their own. He will get special treatment or they will get him to his buddy Jeffery Epstein in some place with some young girls while we are thinking he is in the prison and hopefully he dropped his soap.

    Bologna! Yes, you are saying, “Poor Harvey”

    Is this Sentence “Really” any different than that which would be given to a Poor or at best Middle Class… Black Man, or Hispanic Man, or Muslim Man or Native Indian Man here in America .. or is it that so many Folks are simply so accustomed to the Sentences if indeed there are even Convictions for Wealthy or Privileged White Men being so insanely disproportionate to the Sentences handed down to Folks of Color Judged Guilty of the same Crimes???

    Proof that being a lawyer is as low of a profession as you can find

  5. Obnoxious? Cowardly? 🤣😂🤣😂 How “Obnoxious and cowardly” was her client? 🤦🏻‍♂️

      Exactly like she is…..
      We do not care if you are happy or not !!!
      We are happy with the verdict !!!!
      Get over missy.

      When I read the title of the video I assumed that those quotes referred to Weinstein. This lady is on another planet. Weinstein deserves even worse.

      Her nose actually grows two inches during the course of this video.

  6. Oh the indignation – Weinstein got the same sentence a poor Black man would have gotten.

  7. He didn’t get the max sentence…what are they crying about?

    • Alex Domanovic | March 11, 2020 at 5:10 PM | Reply

      i know right. she was crying like he deserved even more

      They’re preparing for the appeal. The fix is in. Make the Golem happy now, flee later. That’s my call.

    He never showed anything to say he was sorry , all he did was pull the old walker stunt that every millionaires/ billionaires does ,. Look a me I deserve pity . Lady the next billionaire you defend throw the walker out .

    Unfairness? Are you crazy lady? Let’s see what you would have thought of good old Harvey If you were in his personal office 10 years ago.

  10. Fair? What about the victims? Was it fair what Harvey Weinstein did to them? He should have gotten life! He’s lucky!

    • He did get life. He would be 90 when he gets out. The guy is in rough shape. Had heart surgery recently and looks sick. I bet he doesn’t make it to 70.

    • @Julian Ness Good! The report I saw was 23 years possible parole in 5.

    • Crystal Giddens | March 11, 2020 at 4:26 PM | Reply

      @Julian Ness this verdict just ruined it for all the women that dreamed of sleeping their way to the top.

  11. I’d ask how this woman sleeps at night but I’m at peace with the fact that her client will have to cry himself to it✌🏽

    Hey Lawyer: Since you admit he was “guilty enough” for 7 year sentence, then he was “guilty enough” for whatever length the Judge decided upon.

  13. “Obnoxious and cowardly” – that’s YOUR client, DUDE.

  14. Matthew Lewis | March 11, 2020 at 2:59 PM | Reply

    Lady the Judge was prepared for the sentencing cause that’s his job. That’s why he wasn’t sentenced on the same day he was found guilty. So the Judge could decide what a fair sentence would be for his crimes. 23 years is fair..

    Bill Cosby used a white cane, Weinstein used a walker, both props failed.

  16. wtf is a “cowardly number”

  17. The life sentence his victims are living is fair?

  18. Carl Walker Jr | March 11, 2020 at 3:26 PM | Reply

    This is just sad to watch a woman talk up a woman abuser. He got less then he deserved.

  19. It’s about time a decent sentence was issued to fit this kind of crime. The women this man has terrorized over the years, not just those named in the case, but accusers outside the case, those who signed NDAs, and others who were paid to keep silent, will continue to experience the affects of their treatment by this monster. It doesn’t just go away. Having a female lawyer for the optics of it backfired. Good.

  20. The lawyer argued her case. She lost. Stop blaming the judge if you didn’t get the job done.

    BTW. Your client is guilty AF.
