Lawyers for renowned film producer Harvey Weinstein, convicted of rape, have appealed the verdict.

According to ABC News, in accordance with the current verdict, the convict is not eligible for parole release until he turns 80.

Moreover, additional charges could lead to Weinstein being sentenced to 140 years in prison. However, the producer still has a chance to appeal the verdict, thanks to the application filed in the New York Court of Appeals.

The panel of five judges has already heard the arguments of Weinstein's lawyer. According to the lawyer, at the time of the sentencing, the panel included a woman who was writing a book about sexual harassment. He also noted that “ biased testimony '' was submitted to the court, which created a negative image of his client.
