Harvey Weinstein Hires ‘Prison Consultant’ To Prepare Him For Jail

Disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein hired a “prison consultant’’ before his rape conviction to help prepare him for his time behind bars.

The life-behind-bars expert is not a psychologist, but he is helping Weinstein’s camp with logistics, for example, making sure he gets the proper medical care in jail.

According to his rep, Weinstein suffers from diabetes and severe back problems.

The consultant was hired as a precautionary measure.

Weinstein lawyer Arthur Aidala visited his client at Bellevue Hospital in Manhattan on Tuesday. He said it is unclear when the convicted rapist and former powerhouse movie producer might be moved to Rikers while awaiting sentencing March 11.

Weinstein was convicted in Manhattan court Monday of rape and criminal sex act — which leaves him facing up to 29 years behind bars. The judge refused to release him on bail and instead remanded him to jail until he sentences him.
