Prison bosses are reportedly worried about how to handle Harvey Weinstein while he is in jail, fearing he may commit suicide – just like Jeffrey Epstein.

Weinstein was convicted of rape and sexual assault on Monday and officials at New York prisons are said to be concerned another high-profile inmate could take his own life.

The article goes on to state the following:

Billionaire Epstein hanged himself last August in his cell at Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan while awaiting trial on federal sex trafficking charges.

The report says officials are considering¬†putting Weinstein in a¬†private section of Rikers Island’s North Infirmary Command for high-risk inmates.

TMZ cited “high-ranking officials at NYC’s Department of Corrections” in their reporting about fears over a Weinstein suicide.

From TMZ:
For starters, we’re told one possibility is that Weinstein will be housed in a private section of Rikers Island’s North Infirmary Command, which is for high-profile inmates or guys with health issues — Harvey fits both. He could land in the “ANNEX,” with the other dudes falling apart.
