‘Tensions were very high,’ Harvey Weinstein juror says in TV interview

One of the jurors who found Harvey Weinstein guilty of rape described the room where they deliberated as roiled by nerves and high emotion.

“Tensions were high. Tensions were very high. Everyone was nervous,” juror No. 2 said in an interview with Inside Edition. "All I can say is that the temperature in the room was very high.”

After five days of deliberations, the jury of seven men and five women delivered a split verdict against the fallen movie mogul: guilty of forcibly performing oral sex on a woman in 2006 and of third-degree rape in 2013, but innocent of the top charge of predatory sexual assault.

“My hands were sweaty. I felt like my heart was literally gonna pop out of my chest, I wouldn’t say it was really nerve-racking, but it was like, ‘This is it, this is the moment,’” the juror said.

As for the top count, which was tied to “Sopranos” actress Annabella Sciorra, several of the jurors believed her account of Weinstein raping her two decades ago, she said.

“I wouldn’t say that it wasn’t convincing, it was very much so convincing to a lot of the jurors," the juror said. "I feel like the ways things went for her, it was wrong, very much so wrong, and I just feel like hopefully with the verdict that we gave, she... has some type of closure.”

“Every last woman that took the stand, I wish them the best. I hope that this is now a chapter that they could close, move forward with their lives now.”

She told Inside Edition she hadn’t heard of Weinstein before the trial started.

“I didn’t know who he was until someone actually broke it down for me: ‘Oh, that’s him!'”
