Harvey Weinstein maintains innocence after conviction

Nothing really defines the "me too" era like the case against film producer Harvey Weinstein. He was accused of sexual harassment and assault by multiple women, and his case proceeded largely in the public eye.

Weinstein faced five different counts, and he was acquitted on three of them. However, his case recently wrapped up -- at least in the initial stages -- and he was given two felony convictions. They are for third-degree rape and criminal sexual assault. The incidents happened in 2006, involving a production assistant, and in 2013, involving an aspiring actress.

Despite his conviction, Weinstein has maintained that he is innocent. As of the latest reports, he is at Bellevue Hospital in New York. He will eventually be taken to Riker's Island when he is well enough to be transferred.

According to his defense team, in an interview with ABC, Weinstein has always said and continues to say that "I didn't sexually assault anyone and I didn't rape anyone."

Though he remains in custody at this point, Weinstein hasn't been sentenced yet. That is scheduled to take place on March 11. It also appears that he plans to appeal his conviction, as those close to the situation have noted that he is intent on proving that he is innocent.

While this may be the most high-profile case from the "me too" movement, it is far from the only one. It is important for all those who have faced harassment and worse on the job to know exactly what legal rights they have and what steps they can take moving forward.
