Harvey Weinstein is having cameras record his every move so he doesn’t end up dying in the pen like Jeffrey Epstein ..
A correctional officer is assigned to follow Weinstein anytime he’s on the move from within the state prison he’s currently serving his sentence at — which is Wende Correctional Facility in upstate NY– Law enforcement sources tell TMZ.
Aside from the regular surveillance cameras that might be fixated on Harvey at any given time, Reports have it that whichever guard is assigned to watch over him for the day has a camera on him at eye-level … basically, he’s being recorded round-the-clock.

It’s unclear if it’s a body cam or hand held camera — prison officials tell us they can use both when monitoring an inmate’s safety — but in any case it’s lights, camera, action all over again for Mr. Weinstein.
Prison officials are worried if they take their eyes off Weinstein things could quickly go amiss– The concerns followed Weinstein from Rikers to where he’s currently in.
State prison officials are doing this to tamp down any conspiracy theories that might arise if things go south — not just that, they’re looking to cover their butts from criminal liability.
if there’s a mountain of visual evidence at the ready, nobody can accuse them of screwing up like the Epstein guards allegedly did — TMZ insiders report.
Weinstein is in frail health and there were concerns last week he may have had COVID, but he tested negative.
