Legendary US comedian found guilty of sexual assault in retrial

Actor and comedian Bill Cosby could spend the rest of his life behind bars if convicted on three counts of aggravated indecent assault against Andrea Constand in 2004Legendary comedian Bill Cosby has been found guilty of sexual assault in a retrial after a half-dozen women testified that he drugged and assaulted them.

After 14 hours of deliberations, the jury on Thursday, April 26, says Cosby is guilty of all charges brought against him.
The once celebrated comic actor was convicted on three counts of aggravated indecent assault for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his Elkins Park, Pennsylvania home in January 2004.
Cosby, 80, is facing up to 30 years in prison for the conviction and a fine of up to $25,000 on each count.
The sex scandal has robbed Cosby of the reputation and legendary status he has built over the course of his decades-long career.
Formerly seen as a father figure with  his "America’s Dad" character on the hit The Cosby Show in the 1980s, Cosby has been reduced to a sexual predator and a criminal.

Last year, the first trial ended in a deadlock and the retrial began this year on April 9.
Cosby has been accused of sexually assaulting more than 60 women over the past 40 years but Constand's case was the only criminal case.
