Bill Cosby Found Guilty on All Counts of Sexual Assault

The jury reached the verdict on Thursday.

Bill Cosby has been found guilty of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his home in Pennsylvania in 2004.

The jury reached the verdict in court in Norristown, Pennsylvania, on Thursday during a retrial that began about two weeks ago.

The 80-year-old comedian was charged with three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault. Each covers a different aspect of the alleged crime -- count one alleges that Cosby wasn't given consent when he penetrated Constand's genitals with his fingers, count two alleges Constand was unconscious (or semi-conscious) at the time and could not give consent and count three alleges all of this happened after he gave her an intoxicant that impaired her ability to fight him off.

According to the Associated Press, Cosby lashed out at prosecutors following the verdict, telling District Attorney Kevin Steel that he was "sick of him" after jurors left the courtroom and Steel was arguing to revoke Cosby's bail.

AP also reports that the judge ruled that Cosby will remain free pending sentencing.

Cosby has consistently denied all allegations against him. Janice Dickinson was among a group of five additional accusers who the prosecution called to the stand to testify against Cosby at his retrial.

Cosby's lawyers reportedly tried to overturn Judge Steven O'Neill's decision to allow the women to testify during the retrial, but were unsuccessful.

A first trial on the same charges ended last year with a deadlocked jury. Hear more in the video below.
