Bill Cosby Found Guilty of Drugging and Molesting a Woman in 2004

On Thursday, a jury convicted former “Cosby Show” star Bill Cosby on three counts of aggravated indecent assault.

The decision came after a 14-hour-long jury deliberation and could result in the 80-year-old comedian receiving 10 years in prison for each count, according to the Associated Press.

Cosby was accused of drugging and violating Temple University employee Andrea Constand, whom Cosby claimed consented, in 2004 at his home in Philadelphia. The decision also came after multiple women accused Cosby of misconduct and, in this particular case, a jury deadlocked less than a year prior. 

When the jury read the verdict, some of Cosby’s alleged victims cheered in the courtroom.

The three felony counts included “penetration with lack of consent, penetration while unconscious, and penetration after administering an intoxicant,” The New York Times reported.

Although Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin R. Steele asked to revoke Cosby’s bail, the judge dismissed that. In response to the request, Cosby reportedly shouted, “He doesn’t have a plane, you a**hole.”
