Bill Cosby has been found guilty on all three charges of aggravated sexual assault in the Andrea Constand case.
It’s hard to believe but Cosby, once a role model for the world, could get up to 30 years in jail. He’s 80 years old.
Cosby has been accused by dozens of women of drugging and/or raping them. In depositions for a civil case with Constand that preceded this one, Cosby admitted to giving the women Quaaludes among other things.
The trial’s outcome is an American tragedy. Cosby was a hero– a hero– to millions. Regardless of what he’s done to these women– and no one is saying he didn’t– Cosby’s fall is a monumental blow.
I’ll turn it over to the Philadelphia Inquirer here.
