80 year old veteran American actor and comedian, Bill Cosby has been convicted for sexual assault in a ruling by a court in Philadelphia.
Cosby was found guilty of 3 counts of sexual assault in a historic retrial after he raped Andrea Constand at his home in a Philadelphia suburb in 2004.
The verdict came a year after Cosby’s previous trial ended in a mistrial, as a different panel of jurors said they were deadlocked and could not unanimously agree on a verdict. This jury for this hearing began deliberating Wednesday around 11 a.m., and worked for more than 14 hours over two days to reach their decision.
Following the court ruling, the famed comedian now faces up to 10 years in jail on each count when his sentencing finally happens, though chances are that he may serve then term concurrently.
