The comedian faces up to 10 years in prison on each count and could serve them concurrently.

Several Cosby accusers attended the retrial and were seen exiting the courtroom in tears after the verdict was announced.

Prosecutor Kristen Feden also blasted Cosby for smirking while she talked about his accusers, saying. "In fact, he utilized that image and cloaked it around himself so that he could gain the trust, gain the confidences of these aspiring, unsuspecting women".

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

BREAKING: Bill Cosby lashes out at prosecutor in expletive-laden tirade in courtroom after conviction in sexual assault retrial.

After hearing that he would be going to jail, Cosby reportedly began to curse at the prosecutor. The first ended in a mistrial last June after jurors deadlocked.

More than 60 woman in total have made similar allegations. They embraced, smiled and chatted, and he gave her a peck on the cheek.

O'Neill said Cosby should not leave his Pennsylvania home.


Constand testified she went to Cosby's house to discuss a potential career change when he gave her three blue pills he said would relax her. Thirteen Jane Doe witnesses had been deposed and were ready to testify on her behalf for the criminal trial that never materialized.

Jackson is an academic adviser at Temple University, where Constand worked as a women's basketball administrator.

Cosby gave the deposition more than a decade ago as part of Constand's civil suit against him, which he settled in 2006 for almost $3.4 million. She said she became drowsy and unable to move, at which point Cosby touched her and forced her to touch him inappropriately.

Constand, the only Cosby accuser whose case has triggered criminal charges, took the stand for the prosecution over two days, as she did during the first trial. Constand is a con artist, they argued, who wanted a piece of Cosby's fortune.

Cosby shouted at the prosecutor in court when his bail was discussed, observers said. "The perpetrator of that con is this man, sitting right here". "After all is said and done, women were finally believed". Then as now, Cosby pleaded not guilty and has repeatedly denied allegations of wrongdoing.

Constand initially told police about the assault in 2005, a year after the assault occurred. Watch the interview for her thoughts on the case.

The guilty verdict is a remarkable turn of events for the man once known as "America's Dad". This time around, the judge allowed five such women to take the stand.
