Ex-hollywood film mogul found guilty of second sex crimes trial

Harvey Weinstein a former hollywood film mogul has been found guilty by a Los Angeles jury of raping a woman.

The two-month trial heard how Weinstein used his influence to lure women into private meetings before attacking them.

The 70-year-old Oscar winner is facing up to 24 years in prison when he is sentenced.

He is already serving 23 years in jail after he was convicted of rape and sexual assault at his first trial in New York two years ago.

Weinstein was found guilty on Monday of rape and two sexual assault charges involving an accuser, known as Jane Doe 1 to protect her anonymity.

BBC says the jury could not reach verdicts on allegations by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, the wife of California Governor Gavin Newsom, and a woman known as Jane Doe 2. A mistrial was declared on those counts.

He was also acquitted of sexual battery against an accuser known as Jane Doe 3.
