Bill Cosby: Guilty!

A jury of seven men and five women in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, has returned a guilty verdict today against Bill Cosby on three counts of aggravated indecent assault.

It was a retrial held a year after the initial criminal case brought forward by Andrea Constand. The jury had deadlocked last year.

Constand, a former Temple University employee who had alleged she lost consciousness in January 2004 when the legendary comedian slipped her three pills with her win. She further alleged that when she regained consciousness, Cosby was digitally penetrating her and forcing her hand to touch his penis.

The difference in this year’s trial? More of the dozens of Cosby’s accusers were allowed to testify for the prosecution.

It took the jury two days to return the verdict.


Cosby, 80, could face up to 30 years in prison when sentenced.
