Weinstein swaps red carpet for notorious prison island


( CNN) While convicted rapist Harvey Weinstein waits to hear how many years he’ll spend in prison, he’ll be living at the one of the most notorious jail complexes in the United State — Rikers Island.

Weinstein has been working with a consultant in recent months to prepare him for prison, according to his spokesperson. But Rikers — with its reputation for maltreatment — will be a far cry from the red carpet for the dishonor movie mogul.

On his style to Rikers Island after his sentence February 24, Weinstein suffered chest pain, heart palpitations and high blood pressure. He was rerouted to Bellevue Hospital, his attorney Donna Rotunno said.
