A Norristown, Pa jury found Bill Cosby, one of the world's best-known entertainers, guilty of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his nearby home 14 years ago. The jury reached its verdict on its second day of deliberations at the Montgomery County Courthouse, convicting Cosby of three counts of aggravated indecent assault against Andrea Constand.
"The three counts — penetration with lack of consent, penetration while unconscious, and penetration after administering an intoxicant — are felonies, each punishable by up to 10 years in state prison, though the sentences could be served concurrently", writes The New York Times.
The guilty verdicts are serious -- penetration with lack of consent, penetration while unconscious, and penetration after administering an intoxicant -- are felonies, each carrying a prison sentence of up to 10 years. The sentences could be served concurrently.
An earlier trial in the summer of 2017 ended with a deadlocked jury that deliberated for six days.
