Comedian Bill Cosby was found guilty on Thursday after two days of jury deliberation. The comedian who was once known as the American Dad was pronounced guilty of three counts of Aggravated Indecent Assault.
The charges are penetration without consent, penetration while unconscious and penetration after administering intoxicants. Each of these counts are punishable by 10 years in prison.
More than 60 women have accused Cosby of molestation over the period of multiple decades. The first trial against Cosby ended in a mistrial in June 2017. The mistrial was called after the jury deliberated for six days.
The retrial began on the 9th of April in Norristown in Pennsylvania. Judge Steven O’Neill was tasked with presiding over the retrial.
After the jury announced the guilty verdict, Cosby stood up and started abusing in the courtroom. The prosecution also demanded the Court to revoke the comedian’s bail which aggravated Cosby even more. The 80 year old comedian lashed out at prosecutor Kevin Steele calling him an a**hole.
However, Judge O’Neill denied Steele’s request on the grounds of Cosby’s age and medical condition.
