Five other women were called to the witness stand and testified the same thing had happened to them. Cosby responded in a booming voice as he leapt to feet.

Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele, who failed to persuade the first jury, had a hard job: A 14-year-old alleged sex crime.

And with only six months left before 12-year statue of limitations ran out under Pennsylvania law, Montgomery County district attorney Risa Vetri Ferman reopened the Constand investigation. Constand sat stone-faced. But a decade later, a judge unsealed Cosby's transcript for the deposition he gave in the civil case.

Cosby remains free on his current bail, with instructions not to leave the country. "And the fight is not over", defense attorney Thomas Mesereau said outside the courthouse Thursday afternoon.

Cosby, 80, faces up to 10 years in prison for each count, each of which could be served concurrently.

He went on to several successful television series when African-Americans were largely absent from TV.

The comic, who starred as Dr. Cliff Huxtable on "The Cosby Present" from 1984 to 1992, earned a status as "America's Dad". Interest in the long-ignored allegations against Cosby spiked, and dozens of women came forward to say Cosby had sexually assaulted them.

The comedian was accused of drugging and violating a woman at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004.

Constand initially told police about the assault in 2005, a year after the assault occurred.

Invoice Cosby was discovered responsible of sexual assault by a jury of his friends on Thursday.

A jury a short while ago found him guilty of three counts of aggravated indecent assault. "We are so happy that finally we can say women are believed".

Other Cosby accusers celebrated the verdict with hugs, cries, and applause. "I feel like my faith in humanity is restored".

In one evaluation from 2016, Obama wrote: "Ronny's positive impact can not be overstated". I don't want to put a man through a process like this.It's too ugly and too disgusting.

The jury in Cosby's first trial weighed the evidence for five days without reaching a verdict. Constand remained stoic, then hugged her lawyer and members of the prosecution team.

Cosby never denied having sexual contact with Constand, but insisted it was consensual. Nearly none said they were unaware of the cultural movement. He later called it "locker room banter" and his campaign issued an apology to anyone who was offended.

Prosecutor Kristen Feden seized on the characterization of Constand as a scheming con artist during closing arguments, saying it was Cosby who deployed his wholesome TV image to gain the trust of women he planned to incapacitate and assault.

Cosby's defense team derided the other accusers as home-wreckers and suggested they made up their stories in a bid for money and fame.

While more than 60 women have accused Cosby of sexual misconduct, Constand's is the only allegation to have become a criminal case.
