Temple University Considers Rescinding Bill Cosby's Honorary Degree Following Guilty Verdict

Bill Cosby Found Guilty of Drugging, Sexually Assaulting Andrea Constand

The jury in Bill Cosby's indecent assault trial on Thursday found the comedian guilty of all three counts.

Cosby angrily denied he has a plane and called Steele an "a-hole", shouting, "I'm sick of him!" Cosby responded in a booming voice as he leapt to feet.

Now that he has been read the guilty verdict, all aspects of Bill Cosby's life are suffering. Lili Bernard, one of his many accusers, began sobbing.

Cosby remains free on his current bail, with instructions not to leave the country. His lawyer Tom Mesereau declared "the fight is not over" and said he will appeal.

According to The Independent, Cosby could face up to 30 years in prison.

Cosby had been a transcendent figure in show business, coming up as a black comedian during the civil rights movement of the 1960s and winning over white audiences with a clean routine. In "The Cosby Show" from 1984 to 1992, he played the wise and witty Dr. Heathcliff Huxtable, the father of an affluent black family.

Ms Constand, a former operations manager of the women's basketball team at Temple University, said she became close with Cosby, who she viewed as a mentor. She had no comment after the verdict. As Constand stood silently behind him in a bright white blazer, Steele apologized to her for a previous DA's decision in 2005 not to charge Cosby.

"We are so happy that finally we can say, women are believed, and not only on #MeToo, but in a court of law", Allred told reporters.

Shrieks erupted in the courtroom when the verdict was announced, and some of Cosby's accusers whimpered and cried.

Jurors deliberated for 14 hours before reaching a verdict, the AP reports.

The guilty verdict came less than a year after another jury deadlocked on the charges.

Now it is apparent that many others are suffering from Cosby's misconduct, including his former cast-mates from The Cosby Show. Cosby has said any sexual experiences he has had with women were consensual. Constand is a con artist, they argued, who wanted a piece of Cosby's fortune. She testified that Cosby, a powerful trustee at Temple, drugged her and sexually assaulted her when she visited his home to ask for career advice. In the first trial, O'Neill allowed only one accuser besides Constand to take the witness stand.
