Bill Cosby found guilty on all counts in sexual assault retrial

Cosby guilty of drugging and molesting woman more than a decade ago.

The verdict is first high-profile criminal conviction since the beginning of the #MeToo movement and a vindication for the dozens of women who said that the comic known as “America’s Dad” drugged and raped them over the course of several decades.

 

The jury in the retrial of actor/comedian Bill Cosby found the TV icon guilty of all three counts of aggravated indecent assault for drugging and sexually assaulting a woman at his Pennsylvania home in 2004.

CNN reports:
Cosby did not have an audible reaction to his conviction, but erupted shortly afterward. Minutes after the verdict, prosecutors asked the judge to revoke Cosby’s bail because they say he is a flight risk and has a private plane.
Cosby, who did not testify in the trial and has sat quietly throughout the proceedings, then stood up and yelled in a loud, booming voice: “He doesn’t have a plane, you asshole.”
The 80-year-old Cosby remains free on bail until sentencing. Judge Steven O’Neill ruled that Cosby should not leave his Pennsylvania home, and that he would need to be fitted with a GPS tracking device.
At age 80, any prison term would be considered a death sentence.
Andrea Constand
The case against Cosby was brought by Andrea Constand, a former employee with Temple University women’s basketball team. She testified that Cosby, a trustee at the university, drugged and sexually assaulted her when she visited his home to ask for career advice.
Cosby’s defense team had argued that their interaction was consensual. Constand is a con artist, they argued, who wanted a piece of Cosby’s fortune.
Constand is a lesbian, and in 2015 her attorneys noted in a motion, “As defendant [Cosby] admits in his deposition, despite his talent for interpreting female reactions to him, he did not realize Plaintiff was gay until the police told him.”

    A perfect punishment for a serial rapist like Bill Cosby would be to be anally raped and maybe be made to suck Blood or Crip cock every night for the rest of his life. Unfortunately that probably won’t happen, the state DOC will request that Bill not be sent to prison because that would saddle the state with his medical expenses (which are probably astronomical) and the judge will go along as he knows who his boss really is (the state government that issues his paychecks), probably sentencing him to home confinement and probation.

    He will die of old age long before he ever sees prison. Lawyers will keep filing appeals until he in 100. Either that or one day he will take the gas pipe and go quietly in his sleep to avoid jail.
