Bill Cosby Found Guilty on All Three Counts of Sexual Assault Against Andrea Constand
Bill Cosby was convicted by a jury in Pennsylvania on Thursday afternoon on all counts of aggravated indecent assault.Bill Cosby faces up to ten years in prison for each of the three counts
All three counts are felonies: penetration with lack of consent, penetration while unconscious, and penetration after administering an intoxicant.
Andrea Constand was a Temple University employee when Cosby assaulted her.
“I was kind of jolted awake and felt Mr. Cosby on the couch beside me, behind me, and my vagina was being penetrated quite forcefully, and I felt my breast being touched,” Constand told the court. “I was limp, and I could not fight him off.”
Cosby's defense attempted to call Constand's credibility into question, ultimately failing to convince the jury of Cosby's innocence.
Cosby is expected to file an appeal of the decision, although the grounds on which an appeal would be filed remain unclear.
