Melcher said that it was very difficult for Weinstein to children, to reject it, despite the fact that she was mad at him.

“He could spend the rest of his life in detention, so what will be the relationship they will have will be based upon the assessment allowed in the prison, or by means of phone calls and e-mails,” Melcher said. “They will, hopefully, find a way to reconcile.”

A New York City lawyer, Heidi Harris, who was not involved in the case, ” said the youngest of the children, they would be the ones most affected by their father’s situation.

“The children in question are 9 and 6, if there is any resistance to the idea of them seeing their father in prison, the judge can decide whether or not it is in their best interests to go ahead or not,” Harris told Fox News.

According to Harris, the decision would be made after the appointment of an attorney to represent the children, or to the judge speaking to them directly — and also for the kids to make connections to Weinstein, it would have a role to play.

“If they are very close to him, and it is likely that they are going to get to see him quite regularly,” Harris explained. “If it does not, a court may make an order for less money.

It is possible to Weinstein may seek a reduction in child support following his conviction, Harris said, could come in the form of asset acquisition.

“In New York city, it is very difficult for the reversal of an order of child support made pursuant to a contract,” Harris said, adding that Weinstein “would have to show an unexpected, involuntary change in circumstances.”

Harris said that a prison sentence would be of such an involuntary change. “If he just stops paying, then the court may enter a money judgment, and his ex-wife, you can use it to go after his assets to collect the support.”

Phoenix criminal defense lawyer Adam Feldman, is also not involved in the case, echoed the feeling that He would be unlikely to survive in its own way, as it were, is to remain the same, and said a number of factors that may have led to his conviction.

“The number of women who will give the victims and the impact of the statements may have helped to sway the judge is that of a 23-year-old jail is just what He deserves,” said Feldman. “The publicity from the case will likely guide the court in its ultimate decision.”

It is also to be noted that the #MeToo movement is likely to lead to the matter being taken out in the first place.

The officers have already started the process of extraditing Weinstein for California in the face of similar accusations made against him in the state, where it will continue to be confronted with his accusers, according to a statement released by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

“At the very least, prosecutors in Los Angeles and may be able to get a lot of Weinstein’s prior accusers testify in a California trial, for the evil acts they say were perpetrated from outside of the state,” Shapiro said. “How much is unloaded, the complainant will be allowed to testify will ultimately be up to the judge presiding over the trial.”
