Bill Cosby was found guilty yesterday of three counts of aggravated indecent assault for drugging Andrea Constand. He faces ten years in prison on each count, possibly to be served concurrently. This was the second trial for Cosby, his first trial ended in a hung jury, but the second time around with the #MeToo movement flying like rapid fire, Cosby was not able to get away.
Several of the women in the courtroom erupted in emotion and ran into the hallway, hugging and crying. Cosby for his part seemed to be stoic, but later bursted out cursing the prosecutor when he called Cosby a flight risk. “He doesn’t have a plane, you asshole!” Mr. Cosby shouted. Cosby could be released on $1 million bail but should surrender his passport and stay in his home nearby.
Cosby has continued to deny that he assaulted any of the women, he did not testify in his own defense during the trial that ended on Thursday.
This is a great day for all the women that Cosby sexually assaulted, justice was finally served and a lesson to the world that no one is above the law!
