Harvey Weinstein found guilty on two counts, first-degree sexual assault and third-degree rape

The verdict has been announced.

Harvey Weinstein has been found guilty on two counts in his recent criminal trial, first-degree sexual assault and third-degree rape.

Weinstein, 67, was found not guilty of two counts of predatory sexual assault charges for which he had faced a possible life sentence in prison.

He also was acquitted of first-degree rape in a Manhattan courtroom.

A jury of 12 men and women convicted the former movie mogul after they found him guilty on two of the five potential criminal charges he faced in his trial.

Weinstein has been convicted of criminal sexual assault in the first-degree, and rape in the third-degree.

The verdict was announced on Monday after the jury spent five days deliberating on his fate.

The first-degree charge could see the Miramax co-founder face up to 25 years in prison, with a minimum of four years. The third-degree rape count could bring up to four years in prison, though probation on that count is possible.

Weinstein will be sentenced at a later date.

During his time as a film executive, Weinstein produced films such as Pulp Fiction and Shakespeare in Love. The films he was involved with amassed a total of 81 Oscars.

Weinstein also faces four charges in Los Angeles County.
