Weinstein is currently serving a prison sentence in New York, after being charged and arrested for rape in May 2018, and found guilty of two felony counts in February 2020.

The Hollywood producer was sentenced to 23 years behind bars and began serving his sentence at the Wende Correctional Facility.

Weinstein will reach the age of 87 when he is eligible for release on November 9, 2039 at the earliest.

He could face a life sentence if a jury finds him involved in predatory sexual assault – one of three other charges against him.

At the time of his initial conviction, the former producer said through his legal team that he would appeal the ruling.
