Bill Cosby Was Just Found Guilty Of Sexually Assaulting A Woman

Comedian Bill Cosby was convicted on Thursday of drugging and sexually assaulting a onetime friend in 2004, marking the first such conviction of a celebrity since the #MeToo movement that has brought down rich and powerful men for their treatment of women.

"I feel like I'm dreaming". Constand tells The Philadelphia Inquirer, "I did what I thought was right". His portrayal of the sweater-loving Cliff Huxtable on "The Cosby Show" was one of the first mainstream TV shows to feature a black upper-middle class family.

Jurors heard Cosby paid the girl accusing him of sexual assault almost $3.4m (£2.4m) in a civil settlement in 2006.

O'Neill permitted the defense to present testimony from Temple economic adviser Marguerite "Margo" Jackson, who said Constand once told her she could make money by falsely claiming she had been molested by a prominent person.

But Camille Cosby has remained silent after her husband's conviction, not offering a statement after the jury found Bill Cosby guilty of the attack on Andrea Constand. Cosby shouted: "I'm sick of him". The judge also helps the defense case by ruling that jurors can hear how much Cosby ultimately paid Constand in the 2006 civil settlement.

He added there would be no reason for Iran to remain in the deal if the U.S. leaves and the benefits for Iran start to diminish.

The university has had a long history with Cosby, who graduated from the school in 1971 and began to serve on its board of trustees in 1982.

The Associated Press doesn't typically identify people who say they're victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, which Constand has done.

A case with no physical evidence, the trial essentially boiled down to he-said, she-said, hinging on how credible the jury found 45-year-old Constand, a former basketball player turned massage therapist.

The testimony went to the heart of the defense's argument about Constand's financial motives.

One of Cosby's accusers, Lili Bernard, summed up this sentiment today in an interview outside the Pennsylvania courthouse where Cosby was convicted. She was tackled by police and detained.

After the gangster's Facebook status emerged, police officials said they would investigate the incident from this angle as well. Dhalan uploaded a picture on Facebook of him holding a gun with another picture of Parmish Verma with a cross drawn on it.

The 80-year-old grew to become a nationwide treasure throughout his profession, which noticed him produce and star within the TV sitcom The Cosby Present airing from 1984 to 1992.
