Bill Cosby Found Guilty On All Charges In Sexual Assault Retrial

Video: Bill Cosby leaves court after jury fail to reach a verdict in sexual assault case

Bill Cosby gave a freakish response after his retrial on Thursday, where a jury found him guilty of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in 2004.

Comic and entertainer Bill Cosby has been found guilty on all three counts in his retrial on charges of aggravated indecent assault, stemming from a non-consensual sexual encounter 14 years ago.

Cosby faces up to 10 years in prison for each count.

Less than year ago, a different jury was deadlocked after six days of deliberations on the same charges, prompting the judge to declare a mistrial.

Constand, 45, a former Temple women's basketball administrator, told jurors that Cosby knocked her out with three blue pills he called "your friends" and then penetrated her with his fingers as she lay immobilised, unable to resist or say no.

Cosby's new defense team, led by Michael Jackson lawyer Tom Mesereau, countered with a far more robust effort at stoking doubts about Constand's credibility and raising questions about whether Cosby's arrest was even legal. Constand was also pressed about the almost $3.4 million Cosby paid her in a 2006 civil settlement, which was previously confidential.

The case has forever tarnished the legacy of the actor once adored by millions for his role as lovable father and obstetrician Cliff Huxtable on the 1984-92 hit television series "The Cosby Show".

For UConn, the revocation of Cosby's degree was the first time the school had ever taken such punitive action. However, Cosby's defense claimed that each woman had personal issues and some abused drugs prior to meeting Cosby.

Dozens of women have come forward in recent years to say he drugged and assaulted them. Judge O'Neill said it was for the Jury to decide on what they collectively believe what the word means. At times, they rebuked strong questioning from the defense, such as when attorney Kathleen Bliss asked Thomas whether she was testifying to help Constand.

The jurors, who have been sequestered since April 9, are expected to hear the entirety of Jackson's testimony read back to them first thing Thursday.

Cosby is accused of drugging and molesting Constand in 2004.

Jurors eventually called it quits for the night with no verdict, wrapping up their first day of deliberations into whether the comedian drugged and molested Constand on a couch in his Cheltenham, Pa., home in January 2004.

Later in his career, he attracted controversy for lecturing about social dysfunction in poor black neighbourhoods, railing against young people stealing things and wearing baggy trousers. It also prompted authorities to reopen the criminal investigation, and he was charged in late 2015.

"This case is about betrayal, and that betrayal leading to the sexual assault of a woman named Andrea Constand".
