BILL COSBY: Guilty as Charged

Bill Cosby was convicted this (Thursday) afternoon on all three sexual assault charges he was facing in his retrial. The 80-year-old entertainer could get as much as 30 years in prison and a fine of up to $25,000 on each count.

After 14 hours of deliberations, the jury returned a guilty verdict for three counts of aggravated assault against Andrea Constand. She claimed the comedian drugged and raped her in his home in early 2004. The first trial on these charges ended in a mistrial nearly a year ago.

Cosby lashed out when Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele argued that the former TV dad be jailed immediately instead of remaining free on bail until sentencing. Steele told the judge that Cosby was a flight risk and owned a plane. Cosby then shouted, “He doesn’t have a plane, you [a-hole]. He doesn’t know.”

A sentencing date wasn't immediately announced, but it will come within the next 100 days.

Cosby's other accusers who were in the courtroom "shrieked and cried in delight" after the first verdict was announced, according to Deadline.
