According to reports, Bill Cosby shouted at prosecutors following his guilty verdict. The 80-year-old comedian stood trial for sexual assault. A jury found his guilty on three counts of aggravated indecent assault for a 2004 encounter with Andrea Constand at his Philadelphia-area home.
Following Cosby's outburst, Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele argued his bail should be revoked, as he could flee anywhere in the world. But Judge Steven O'Neill denied Steele's motion, citing Cosby's age, appearance, and willingness to attend over 2 years of trial proceedings and hearings.
