Harvey Weinstein Moved Into Maximum Security Prison with John Lennon’s Killer


Harvey Weinstein has been transferred to a maximum security prison in upstate New York, where John Lennon’s killer also resides.

The convicted producer was initially being held at the notorious Rikers Island prison after a stay in hospital. Weinstein had chest pains following his 23 year sentencing.

Following his conviction, he was taken to Bellevue Hospital and had a procedure to implant a stent to remove a blockage, and he returned to Bellevue once more after he was sentenced.


Now, the 68-year-old has been assigned to the Wende Correctional Facility in Alden, New York, a New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision has confirmed.

Weinstein will remain at Wende for an ‘undetermined period of time’ while authorities decided which facility meets his ‘security, medical, mental health and other needs.’
