After the trial in New York City, Harvey Weinstein was set to go to jail immediately. This did not occur, as he was rushed to the hospital for heart palpitations and chest pain. He reportedly underwent heart surgery and stayed in the hospital for a week. He is now on his way to an infirmary unit in the notorious Rikers Island prison in New York City. Per a source at the prison, the infirmary is more like a regular prison unit than a hospital. Weinstein is set to be tried in Los Angeles later this year.
