Harvey Weinstein's former assistant is pushing back on the idea that the disgraced producer could face unfair treatment in prison as officials take extraordinary steps to make sure he survives behind bars.
"He's experiencing only a small amount of the fear and terror that he instilled in dozens of women who he assaulted," Rowena Chiu, who says Weinstein tried to rape her in 1998, told Inside Edition.
Reports say he will be kept under 24-hour video surveillance and may have a prison unit all to himself.
The movie mogul was found guilty of raping actress Jessica Mann and sexually assaulting former production assistant Miriam Haleyi. Despite the testimony of Sopranos' actress Annabella Sciorra, they found him not guilty of the most serious charge of predatory sexual assault, which could have carried a life sentence in prison.
