Bill Cosby found guilty of sexual assault; lashes out at DA

Wearing sunglasses in the courtroom, Cosby's wife smirked and pursed her lips a few times but otherwise listened stoically. "When all is said and done, women were finally believed".

The jury, which deliberated for more than 14 hours over two days, found him guilty on all three counts of aggravated indecent assault.

"There's always the possibility there could be a probationary sentence, they may not impose the ten years, the mandatory sentence, but there's always the possibility that he could spend the rest of his life in jail". Not just that, but the jury began deliberations on Wednesday April 25 and arrived at the decision by Thursday.

Another Cosby defense attorney, Tom Mesereau, called Constand a "pathological liar".

Constand and her mother, Gianna, both testified during the retrial.

Cosby reportedly yelled, "He doesn't have a plane, you a**hole!" But within minutes, she developed double vision, started slurring her words and lost consciousness.

Dozens of women have come forward in recent years to say he drugged and assaulted them.

She testified that she soon became incapacitated, and then felt his fingers inside of her, but "couldn't fight him off".

When Constand first reported the assault, the district attorney at the time initially refused to press charges. Constand was also pressed about the almost $3.4 million Cosby paid her in a 2006 civil settlement, which was previously confidential.

Like many of Cosby's other accusers, Constand said she was drugged and violated while unable to defend herself.

A handful of Cosby accusers, including Lili Bernard, an activist and artist who says Cosby drugged and raped her in the 1990s when she was a guest star on The Cosby Show, was among the accusers at the retrial.

Much like the initial trial, Cosby did not take the stand at the recommendation of his legal team. He faces a defamation lawsuit from Summer Zervos, a contestant on his former reality show who accuses him of sexually harassing her. Trump's lawyer has said her accusations are false and politically motivated.

"The perpetrator of that con?" shouted Feden in dramatic and emotional closing remarks.

A couple of months later, she told the court, she attempted to confront Cosby about it.

Both prosecutors and defense lawyers were more aggressive in their courtroom tactics and cross-examinations, and in their regular sniping at each other.
