Harvey Weinstein sentenced to 23 years in prison (VIDEO)

Movie producer Harvey Weinstein was sentenced today to 23 years in prison, after being convicted of two felony sex crimes last month. His defense team is expected to appeal.

The 67 producer, arrived at his sentencing hearing in a wheelchair and in handcuffs. 

The former Hollywood producer before the sentence was handed down and with his voice barely audible, he said: “I really feel remorse for this situation, I feel it deeply in my heart. I will spend my time really caring and really trying to be a better person.”

At one point Weinstein said of his accusers: “I’m not going to say these aren’t great people, I had wonderful times with these people, you know, It is just I’m totally confused and I think men are confused about all of these issues.”

CBS News legal analyst Rikki Klieman joined CBSN to discuss the severity of Weinstein’s punishment.
