The jury in Bill Cosby’s retrial has found ‘America’s Dad’ guilty of all three counts of aggravated indecent assault on Thursday for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his home in a Philadelphia suburb in 2004.
Bill Cosby, now 80, could be sentenced to 10 years in prison on each count but is likely to serve them concurrently. A sentencing hearing has not yet been scheduled, and he remains out on bail.
Attorney Gloria Allred, who represents many of the women who have accused Cosby of misconduct, said this was the happiest she had been with a verdict in 42 years.
“We are so happy that finally we can say, women are believed. And not only on #MeToo but in a court of law where they are under oath, where they testified truthfully, where they are attacked,” Allred said. “After all is said and done, women were finally believed.
