Bill Cosby Found Guilty of Sexual Assault, Reportedly Lashed Out After Conviction

American icon Bill Cosby was found guilty of three counts of aggravated indecent assault on Thursday (Apr. 26). The comedian was accused of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his home in a Philadelphia suburb in 2004.

Cosby, 80, faces up to 10 years in prison on each count, but would likely serve them concurrently. He remains out on bail until his sentence hearing is scheduled.

Cosby did not have an audible reaction to his conviction, but he did lash out at prosecutors after a being found guilty on all three counts, the AP reports. The comedian reportedly stood up and used an expletive to refer to District Attorney Kevin Steele, who was arguing to revoke Cosby’s bail. “I’m sick of him!” he shouted.

The judge ruled Cosby will remain free pending sentencing.

Dozens of women have come forward in recent years to say the comedian drugged and assaulted them. Five of the other accusers testified against him at the retrial.
