Bill Cosby found guilty on all counts

Cosby risks spending the rest of his life behind bars when he is sentenced for drugging and molesting Andrea Constand

A jury outside Philadelphia convicted the "Cosby Show" star on Thursday (early Friday morning, NZT).

Cosby was charged with violating Temple University employee Andrea Constand at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004.

A handful of Cosby accusers, including Lili Bernard, an activist and artist who says Cosby drugged and raped her in the 1990s when she was a guest star on The Cosby Show, was among the accusers at the retrial.

The 80-year-old comedian now faces a statutory maximum of 30 years in prison.

Nearly 50 women had come forward to accuse the 80 year old famous actor and comedian who will soon find out where he'll be spending his twilight years.

According to Deadline, the other women who testified on behalf of the prosecution were Janice Dickinson, Heidi Thomas, Janice Baker-Kinney, Lise-Lotte Lublin and Chelan Lasha.

Their star witness was Marguerite Jackson, a former Temple University colleague of Constand's who testified that Constand spoke of framing a high-profile person for the goal of filing a lawsuit.

BREAKING: Bill Cosby lashes out at prosecutor in expletive-laden tirade in courtroom after conviction in sexual assault retrial. In the first trial, O'Neill allowed only one accuser besides Constand to take the witness stand.

The first trial ended just before a flood of sexual assault and harassment accusations against rich and powerful men in media, entertainment and politics gave rise to the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements.

As well as, the decide determined to permit the jury to listen to that Cosby paid $3.four million to Constand to settle her lawsuit towards him greater than a decade in the past. She said she became drowsy and unable to move, at which point Cosby touched her and forced her to touch him inappropriately.

The victim, Andrea Constand, is now 45 years old.

Cosby's defense team argued that their interaction was consensual.

And that could have been the end of it for Constand, even though she knew then she was not the only woman to say Cosby had drugged and sexually assaulted her.

She said the defense's closing argument was filled with "rampant and ingrained" misconceptions about sexual assault and victim behavior.

Cosby is accused of drugging and molesting Constand in 2004.

A jury in Montgomery County Pennsylvania returned the verdict in the comedian's second sexual assault case after deliberating for 14 hours.

During jury selection, the judge asked hundreds of potential jurors whether their feelings about #MeToo would get in the way of being a fair fact-finder in the Cosby case.

She testified that Cosby slipped her three blue tablets he referred to as "your mates". In a two-hour, tag-team closing argument, Cosby's attorneys, Mesereau and Kathleen Bliss, painted Constand as a "pathological liar" scheming for a giant payday.
