New Delhi, Apr 26: American stand-up comedian and actor Bill Cosby has been convicted of drugging and molesting Temple University employee Andrea Constand at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004. The 80-year-old actor could now be spending his final years behind the bars.
The verdict was delivered late on Friday after a two-week trial. Five other women have also alleged that he had drugged and sexually violated them. The women were put on the stand to testify against his behaviour. Reportedly, one of those women also asked him, “You remember, don’t you, Mr Cosby?”
On April 9, 2018, a topless protester with “Women’s Lives Matter” written on her body in red ink charged at Bill Cosby as he walked into a suburban Philadelphia courthouse for the start of his sexual assault retrial. The woman jumped over a barricade and launched toward Cosby but was intercepted by sheriff’s deputies. She was taken into custody and led away in handcuffs. The unidentified woman was among a half-dozen people chanting in support of Cosby’s accuser. She had “Women’s Lives Matters” written in red ink on her chest and stomach along with other phrases in black and red all over her body.
