Bill Cosby was tried last year for three counts of aggravated indecent assault of Andrea Constant — who was a Temple employee that was being mentored by Cosby at the time of the assault in 2004. It ended in a mistrial, but he has just been found guilty of all charges in a retrial.
Over two weeks, five other women testified in the retrial and said they were also drugged and assaulted by Cosby. Over 60 women has accused him of sexual misconduct, but according to Jezebel many of them couldn’t speak becuase of the short statute of limitations when reporting assault or rape. District Attorney KEvin Steele wanted to present 19 women’s stories, but Judge Steven O’Neill only allowed the five.
When the guilty verdict was announced, the room collectively cried and cheers.
Cosby could now face 10 years in jail and a $25,000 fine on each count he was accused of.
