Bill Cosby Found Guilty in Sexual Assault Retrial
A jury ruled against Bill Cosby in his sexual assault retrial on Thursday, finding him guilty for aggravated indecent assault in all three charges brought against him by Andrea Constand.

The panel of seven men and five women began deliberating on the case on Wednesday morning. The 80-year-old entertainer was accused by Constand, the former operations manager of the women’s basketball team at Temple University, of drugging and molesting her in January 2004.

Constand said she became close with Cosby, who was a major supporter of the university, and viewed him as a mentor. She alleged that he abused her trust, however, when he invited her to his home in Montgomery County and offered her three blue pills to help her relax.

The charges were first brought to trial last June,
