Cosby found guilty of sexual assault

Posted April 27, 2018

As the Inquisitr reported earlier today, Bill Cosby was found guilty on three counts of sexual assault by his peers, a jury of seven men and five women.

The prosecution also revealed for the first time, with Cosby's permission, that he'd paid Constand $3.38 million to settle the sexual assault lawsuit she brought against him in 2005.

Cosby faces up to 30 years in prison.

Of dozens of women who have come forward in recent years to accuse the entertainer of similar assaults stretching back to the 1960s, only Constand's allegations fall within the statute of limitations.

Cosby then left the courthouse with his lawyers and publicist.

The Celtics know that they can't afford to lose game 5 and have to try to stave off elimination in Milwaukee . They got absolutely blitzed in the first halves of both games as they were outscored by a total of 39 points.

Steele told the judge he wanted the bail increased because Cosby was a flight risk, at which point Cosby yelled at Steele, "He doesn't have a plane you a**hole!" Constand claimed that Cosby drugged and assaulted her in his home in 2004. She and Cosby were once friends. A previous trial on the same charges ended in a mistrial in June of 2017.

U.S. President Donald Trump has been accused by several women of sexual misconduct, including after the release during the 2016 presidential campaign of a video in which he had spoken in vulgar terms about trying to have sex with women.

Cosby's new defense team, led by Mesereau, the celebrity attorney who won an acquittal for Michael Jackson on child-molestation charges, launched a highly aggressive attack on Constand, calling her a "con artist" and "pathological liar" who framed Cosby to get rich.

Constand testified she went to Cosby's house to discuss a potential career change when he gave her three blue pills he said would relax her.

It was the only criminal case to arise from a barrage of allegations from more than 60 women who said the former TV star drugged and molested them over a span of five decades. In the first trial, O'Neill allowed only one accuser besides Constand to take the witness stand.
