Bill Cosby found guilty of all charges in sex assault retrial


Bill Cosby was convicted Thursday of drugging and molesting a former Arizona Wildcats women's basketball player. The case centers on Constand's allegation that Cosby drugged her and sexually assaulted her in January 2004 at his home outside Philadelphia. He faces a defamation lawsuit from Summer Zervos, a contestant on his former reality show who accuses him of sexually harassing her. Trump's lawyer has said her accusations are false and politically motivated. He is facing up to 10 years in prison for each account.

Five other women, including reality TV star Janice Dickinson, have also testified that Cosby drugged and assaulted them in the past, as prosecutors argued the alleged assault on Constand was part of Cosby's pattern. Prosecutors were allowed by O'Neill to call five other accusers of Cosby - "prior bad acts" witnesses - to testify that he did the same thing to them, too. Constand has done so. Constand remained stoic, then hugged her lawyer and members of the prosecution team.

"This case is about trust, betrayal and the inability to consent", Kristen Feden told jurors, tearing into the defense's "vicious" and "filthy" character assassination attempts against Cosby's accusers.

Bill Cosby has arrived at a suburban Philadelphia courthouse where jurors are deliberating in the comedian's sexual assault retrial. Ms Constand sued Cosby after prosecutors initially declined to file charges, settling with him for almost $3.4 million over a decade ago.

Our heart continues to go out to many of Cosby's victims who spent the past several years being persecuted and criticized for coming out and sharing their stories.

The decision _ guilty for aggravated indecent assault stemming from the attack on Constand _ was announced in a packed Norristown courtroom.




This was the second time Cosby had stood trial for the allegations, after an earlier jury failed to reach a verdict in June 2017.

Cosby has claimed he gave Constand 1.5 tablets of Benadryl to help her relax.

They mounted regular protests during both trials, including a topless protest on the opening day of the retrial, hoping to influence the media and the public.

And she slammed the #MeToo movement itself, calling Cosby its victim and likening it to a witch hunt or a lynching.

Cosby yelled, according to multiple reporters who attended the trial.

The exhausted panel called it a night after rehearing excerpts from Cosby's old deposition testimony, including his admission he gave quaaludes to women he wanted to have sex with in the 1970s.
