The 81-year-old comedian can spend 10 years behind bars.
The movement against harassment in America is actively developing. Harvey Weinstein’s harassment charges are not his biggest example. The case against comedian Bill Cosby turned out to be much more scandalous. Last year, Andrea Constand, who previously worked at Temple University, made a shocking statement: in 2004, Cosby first “pumped” her sleeping pills and then raped her.
After recognizing the woman, there were another 15 victims of the comic's harassment. Moreover, he is suspected of raping a minor - in 1974, he abused 15-year-old Judy Huth. Celebrities were also telling about sex coercion - model Janice Dickinson admitted that the comedian had raped her, and actress Sofia Vergara said she was harassing.
The showman repented of using sleeping pills and opiates, but denied allegations of coercion to intimacy, saying that everything happened voluntarily. The court sided with women - Cosby, 81, was sentenced to prison. The details of the sentence remained secret, but it is known that for his crimes he was threatened from 3 to 10 years.
