Hollywood mogul, Harvey Weinstein jailed for 23 years .

Weinstein, 67, appeared in wheelchairs was on Wednesday found guilty of third-degree rape and first-degree criminal sexual act .

Weinstein’s lawyers had appealed for leniency, insisting that even the minimum sentence of five years could be a “life sentence” for him.

But prosecutors argued Weinstein should be given the maximum possible sentence given his “lifetime of abuse” towards women and “lack of remorse” for his actions.

Weinstein addressed the court for the first time on Wednesday, saying he had “deep remorse” but described himself as “totally confused” by what had happened, in comments seen as critical to the #MeToo movement.
