World – The jury in former Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein’s rape trial began deliberations on Tuesday, 

If found guilty Weinstein could go to prison for life. 

The case has become a milestone for the #MeToo movement.

The New York jury of seven men and five women began their discussions after the judge hearing the case warned Weinstein’s lead defense lawyer, Donna Rotunno, against talking to the press until jurors have reached a verdict.

The warning came two days after the attorney wrote an opinion piece about the case in Newsweek magazine.
