A jury found Bill Cosby guilty of three counts of sexual assault drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in his suburban Pennsylvania home in 2004. The jury handed down the guilty verdict on all three counts of indecent aggravated assault after more than 12 hours of deliberation, following a retrial that lasted more than two weeks.
Cosby’s conviction concludes an acrimonious case that played out in the courtroom and in the press. In 2014 and 2015, dozens of women came forward with allegations that the comedian had drugged and sexually abused them. The statute of limitations had long since expired in almost all of those cases.
This could result in not only a cash fine but also prison time.
It is expected that his legal team will immediately appeal.
Will he be freed on bond or be sent to jail today?
More to come....
