Bill Cosby Found Guilty on All Charges in Sexual Assault Trial

The Latest: Cosby jury ends Day 1 without a verdict

The Latest: Cosby jury ends Day 1 without a verdict

As the Inquisitr reported earlier today, Bill Cosby was found guilty on three counts of sexual assault by his peers, a jury of seven men and five women.

Cosby has said any sexual encounters were consensual, and his lawyers portrayed the accusers as fabricating stories in search of wealth and fame.

Cosby was convicted on three counts of aggravated indecent assault for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in a Philadelphia suburb in 2004.

Although he could get up to 10 years for each count, state sentencing guidelines suggest a term of less than 10 years.

Fadi Mohammad al-Batsh's corpse was set to be flown to Egypt later in the day before being transported on to Gaza for burial. The pictures show two light-skinned, bearded men, one of whom was wearing glasses and a white and black helmet.

"He doesn't have a plane, you asshole!"

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. Then as now, Cosby pleaded not guilty and has repeatedly denied allegations of wrongdoing. This was reportedly the first time that Cosby's wife of 54 years was present at her husband's trial as she did not attend for the 11 days of testimony. 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. 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 Cosby Show" from 1984 to 1992, he played the wise and witty Dr. Heathcliff Huxtable, the father of an affluent black family.

Much like the initial trial, Cosby did not take the stand at the recommendation of his legal team. Dozens of accusers pointed to the transcript as vindication of their claims, and public pressure to file charges in Constand's case, which was still within the statute of limitations, increased. But a decade later, a judge unsealed Cosby's transcript for the deposition he gave in the civil case.

The Associated Press does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission.
