A mistrial was declared in Cosby's first trial in June when the jury failed to yield a unanimous verdict. He says the woman consented.

As the verdict was read, Cosby looked down with a sad expression.

Bill Cosby gave a weird response after his retrial on Thursday, where a jury found him guilty of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in 2004.

Defense attorney Kathleen Bliss chastised Constand for "cavorting around with a married man old enough to be her grandfather". The seven men and five men spent hours going over testimony and evidence from a case that ended in a hung jury in 2017.

The judge ruled that Cosby will remain free pending sentencing. Constand was a "con artist", they argued, who wanted a piece of Cosby's fortune.

Some more breaks of sunshine are expected for Thursday , as well, to go along with high temperatures climbing back into the 60s. Highs should reach the upper 60s to near 70, with light winds from the northwest and west around 5 to 10 miles per hour .

Constand, 45, a former Temple women's basketball administrator, told jurors that Cosby knocked her out with three blue pills he called "your friends" and then penetrated her with his fingers as she lay immobilised, unable to resist or say no.It was the only criminal case to arise from a barrage of allegations from more than 60 women who said the former TV star drugged and molested them over a span of five decades. She testified that Cosby, a powerful trustee at Temple, drugged her and sexually assaulted her when she visited his home to ask for career advice 14 years ago. "The women who have come forward are strong and fearless, and they have delivered hope to the countless women whose abusers have yet to be held accountable".

As rapt jurors listened to the judge overseeing Bill Cosby's sex assault retrial read back prior testimony, the entertainer's lead lawyer snoozed in his chair.

"I feel like I'm dreaming", Lili Bernard, who has accused Cosby of assault, said afterward.

Jurors also learned that Cosby had reached a settlement with Constand of $3.4 million.

Attorney for the Southern District of NY ". "He would have done a great job... and they're trying to destroy a guy", Trump said. He said Wednesday that he would assert his constitutional right against self-incrimination in that case.

Jurors, however, did hear depositions Cosby gave in 2005 and 2006 as part of a civil suit Constand filed against him.

"The most important person in our team was Andrea Constand", Steele, the district attorney, told reporters.

His defense team tried to paint Constand as a con artist who showed romantic interest in the comedian in order to concoct false assault allegations and secure a almost $3.4-million civil settlement, at one point calling her a "pathological liar". Among the accusers was model and reality TV star Janice Dickinson, who testified that Cosby drugged and assaulted her in 1982.

The jury resumed deliberations Thursday by re-examining testimony from a defense witness who said Constand once talked about framing a prominent person for money.
