Harvey Weinstein, once one of the most powerful men in Hollywood, will likely spend the next several years in an 8-by-10-foot cell in upstate New York.

Weinstein, 67, who was found guilty Monday of first-degree criminal sexual act and third-degree rape, faces a sentence of between five and 25 years on the first count. Though the former movie mogul was acquitted on the most serious charge against him -- predatory sexual assault, which carried a possible life sentence -- any lengthy sentence could see a man of Weinstein’s age spending the rest of his days in prison.
