Yesterday, the verdict was finally revealed and Harvey Weinstein was found guilty for criminal sexual assault and rape in the third degree. After the verdict was read, he was taken into custody without bail.

According to CNN, while he was being transported to New York’s Rikers Island, he was rerouted to New York’s Bellevue Hospital for chest pains, heart palpitations, and high blood pressure.

He was admitted Monday night, and his attorney confirmed that he is okay, and remained in the prison ward at Bellevue Tuesday morning.

As we previously reported, Harvey was found guilty of criminal sexual assault in the first degree, and rape in the third degree. The jury was able to reach a verdict on the sexual assault charge based on a testimony provided by Miriam Haley, who is a former “Project Runway,” production assistant. They were able to reach a verdict on the rape charge based on the testimony provided by aspiring actress Jessica Mann.

Once he is released from the hospital, he is expected to be transferred to Rikers Island.

He will officially be sentenced on March 11th and faces up to 25 years for the sexual assault conviction, and 18 months to 4 years for the third-degree rape conviction.

Harvey is also facing charges in Los Angeles, but no hearing has been scheduled as of yet.
