The 12-person jury, which is made up of seven men and five women, began deliberating on Tuesday morning. By Monday morning, they had spent about 22 hours deliberating.

The judge in the case remanded Weinstein into custody without bail, against his attorneys’ request.

The criminal sexual assault charge came from Miriam “Mimi” Haleyi, who was a production assistant and said that he assaulted her in 2006. That charge came with sentencing guidelines of five to 25 years.

The charge of rape in the third degree came from another, unnamed accuser, and came with sentencing guidelines of probation up to four years.
