#MeToo Movement: American film producer Harvey Weinstein has been sentenced by a New York judge to 23 years in the rape and sexual abuse case on Wednesday. This kind of sentencing is an example of the last year’s Meitu movement. Justin James Burke passed the sentence, ignoring Weinstein’s defense team’s plea. Weinstein’s defense said that Harvey should only be sentenced to five years, which is a life sentence for Harvey.
