Cosby Found Guilty of Sexual Assault

 

Icon, and comedian Bill Cosby was found guilty by a jury of his peers Thursday of drugging and sexually assaulting a woman at his home 14 years ago.

Cosby was found guilty three counts — penetration with lack of consent, penetration while unconscious, and penetration after administering an intoxicant — all of these are felonies, and each one is punishable by up to 10 years in state prison, however there is a chance that he just serves 10 years if the judge decides to make the sentences run concurrently.

Cosby did not testify in his own defense, but he and his lawyers said that his encounter with Ms. Constand (who was the accuser in this specific incident) was part of a consensual affair, not an assault.
