He stared straight ahead as the verdict was read but moments later lashed out loudly at District Attorney Kevin Steele after the prosecutor demanded Cosby be sent immediately to jail.
The Twitterverse lit up, Thursday, following news that Bill Cosby has been found guilty on three counts of aggravated sexual assault. Constand remained stoic as the verdicts were read, and only later embraced supporters and the other accusers in the same court where almost one year ago, a mistrial was declared during Cosby's trial on the same charges after jurors weren't able to reach a unanimous verdict.
Like many of Cosby's other accusers, Constand said she was drugged and violated while unable to defend herself.
Cosby's defense team argued that their interaction was consensual.
Soon after the first trial, a series of women leveled sexual assault and harassment accusations against men in media, entertainment and politics, giving rise to the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements that encouraged women go public with personal stories of abuse, in some cases after years of silence. Andrew Young and Martin Luther King, III are two of the founders. When she was alive, Ensa defended her father against the slew of sexual assault allegations that he was facing.
Cosby lowered his head and took a deep breath when the verdicts were announced, while three of his accusers who attended the trial burst into loud tears of joy. Cosby's wife, Camille Cosby, finally made an appearance in the courtroom on Tuesday. A previous trial on the same charges ended in a mistrial in June of 2017.
The 80-year-old former comedian faces up to 10 years in prison on each count, but would likely serve them concurrently.
Sentencing was expected within 60 to 90 days, after Cosby submits to a "sexually violent predator assessment".
