Big Rapist Bill Cosby Found Guilty of Sexual Assault

When Bill Cosby was producing The Cosby Show, he hired psychiatrist Dr. Alvin Francis Poussaint to consult on the script and make sure that there were no negative stereotypes that portrayed African-Americans in a bad light. When he was done filming, he’d unwind by drugging women and raping them while they were unconscious.

Today, after his last trial ended in a mistrial, Bill Cosby actually faces some consequences for his actions after being found guilty of sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in 2004. Cosby was actually found guilty of three different offenses: penetration with lack of consent, penetration while unconscious, and penetration after administering an intoxicant. Each offense is a felony punishable by up to ten years in prison.

After the verdict, the prosecution asked that Cosby’s bail be revoked, saying that because he had a private plane he could go anywhere. This lead an angry Cosby to yell “He doesn’t have a private plane, you asshole!” The judge declined to rescind Cosby’s bail, but made him surrender his passport and instructed him to stay at his home until sentencing.

What happens to Cosby now is entirely at the discretion of the judge. Mandatory minimum sentences were found to be unconstitutional, so Cosby could be looking at spending the next 30 years in prison or he could get probation or a suspended sentence and not spend a day in prison. Cosby will also probably not report to prison until after the appeals process is over, something the 80-year-old Cosby can probably just drag out until he’s dead.

What this means, regardless of what Cosby’s sentence ends up being, is that his victims get some kind of closure. They were heard and believed, and no one can take that away from them no matter what punishment Cosby eventually gets.
