Disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein has tested positive for the coronavirus while in prison for rape and sexual assault, a local newspaper reported.
Weinstein, 68, is now in isolation at Wende Correctional Facility in western New York, state prison officials told CNHI newspapers on Sunday.
He was sentenced earlier this month to 23 years in prison for sexually assaulting former Project Runway production assistant Miriam Haleyi and raping former actress Jessica Mann.
Weinstein is one of two inmates in the maximum-security prison in Erie County who have tested positive, the officials said.
Juda Engelmayer, Weinstein’s spokesperson, told The Daily Beast on Sunday that “our team... has not heard anything like that yet.”
