COMMUNITY Bill Cosby Faces up to 30 Years in Prison Following Guilty Verdict
A jury yesterday found American Comedian cum Actor guilty on three counts charge of sexual assault.
Cosby had been on trial for the drugging and sexually assaulting Basket Ball player Andrea Constand in his home in 2004.
The 80 year-old Cosby faces up to 10 years in prison on each count charge and is likely to serve the jail term concurrently.
However, he remains out of jail until his sentencing despite the prosecution’s concern that he is a flight risk since he has access to planes – a statement that got a response from the silent Cosby.
“He doesn’t have a plane, a*****le,” Cosby said.
Judge O’Neill ruled that Cosby should not leave his home and he opt to stay in one of his homes in a different state, he should be fitted with a tracking device.
A similar trial against Cosby in 2017 ended in mistrial after the jury failed to reach a unanimous vote.
Judge O’Neill will hand down a sentence in the next 60 to 90 days.
The verdict was met with joy from the victims and their supporters.
Some of the accusers who were present in court cried at the verdict.
Attorney Gloria Alfred, representing 33 victims of Cosby assault expressed her gratitude to jury for the verdict.
“Justice has been done,” she shouted in a press conference.
