Bill Cosby Found Guilty Of Sexual Assault
A Pennsylvania jury has found Bill Cosby guilty of three counts of aggravated indecent assault, and the 80-year-old actor-comedian could be spending the rest of his life in jail.
According to the Associated Press, the jury agreed with prosecutors that Cosby drugged and sexually violated Temple University employee Andrea Constand at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004. Cosby had claimed that the incident was consensual.
The AP story said Cosby could get up to 10 years in prison for each of the charges, but there is a good chance the sentence will be less than that due to state sentencing guidelines.
The conviction comes in a retrial after the first trial on these charges ended in a hung jury less than a year ago.
