MONTGOMERY COUNTY, PA
Actor, Bill Cosby has just been found guilty on all three counts of felony second-degree, aggravated indecent assault charges in a Montgomery County Courthouse. Cosby was charged with molesting and drugging a woman. His, is the first celebrity trial of a man charged with rape/and or indecent sexual assault, or behavior during the current #metoo era. The charges Cosby were convicted of carries a maximum of 10-years in prison apiece. The sentence could be ran concurrent or they could be ran consecutively. There is still the chance that Cosby could serve less time, or no time at all if probation is on the table, considering Cosby has no prior criminal record. It’s not yet clear if Cosby will be taken into custody immediately or if Cosby will be allowed to come back for sentencing at a later date. Bill Cosby is 80-years old and quickly losing sight in both eyes. This may be a factor in sentencing, as a medical deferment may come into play. This news is still breaking. More on this breaking story coming up later. Stay tuned!
A wild scene took place outside of a Norristown, PA courthouse as Bill Cosby was making his way into the building during his retrial on charges of drugging multiple women. A topless woman appeared out of nowhere and seemed to charge at the comedian. The topless woman had multiple messages painted on her body, including “women” and what appears to be the word “feminism.” Cosby barely reacted to the commotion. It’s not clear if Cosby’s vision is impaired or if he just wasn’t aware of what was taking place around him. Cosby’s lawyers however, looked stunned as the protester took her stance. Nearby police quickly rushed in to subdue the topless protester.
