Bill Cosby opts not to testify in his sexual assault retrial | The Guardian
Bill Cosby's lawyers attack accusers and 'silly evidence' in closing arguments | The Guardian
Lawyers for Bill Cosby called his chief accuser a pathological liar who wanted a big payday, and urged a jury on Tuesday to acquit the 80-year-old of sexual assault charges they said were based on “flimsy, silly, ridiculous evidence”.
The first big celebrity trial of the #MeToo era was poised on Tuesday afternoon to be handed to the jury, as both sides summed up their arguments. The defense declared that Cosby himself was the victim of an elaborate scam.
Cosby’s lawyers, Tom Mesereau and Kathleen Bliss, insisted that Cosby’s main accuser, Andrea Constand, consented to a sexual encounter at the star’s home in suburban Philadelphia in 2004, then leveled false accusations against him so she could sue him and win a settlement.
Prosecutors will deliver their closing argument on Tuesday afternoon, with the jury expected to begin deliberations on the same day.

Bill Cosby trial: Guilty on all three counts, jury says | CNN
The jury in Bill Cosby's retrial found the TV icon guilty of all three counts of aggravated indecent assault on Thursday for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in a Philadelphia suburb in 2004.
The 80-year-old comedian faces up to 10 years in prison on each count, but would likely serve them concurrently. A sentencing hearing has not yet been scheduled.
Cosby did not have an audible reaction to his conviction. Afterward, prosecutors asked the judge to revoke Cosby's bail because he is a flight risk and has a private plane.
Cosby, who did not testify in the trial and has sat quietly throughout the proceedings, then stood up and yelled in a loud, booming voice: "He doesn't have a plane, you asshole."
Judge Steven O'Neill ruled that Cosby should not leave his Pennsylvania home, and that he would need to be fitted with a GPS tracking device.
After the trial concluded, Constand left through a side door in the courtroom, walking into a hallway with her arms around two women and a huge smile on her face.

Gettysburg College rescinds Bill Cosby's honorary degree
Following Cosby's sexual assault conviction, the Gettysburg College Board of Trustees joined more than 20 colleges across the country in voting to rescind the comedian's honorary degree on May 4, according to Jamie Yates, the college's director of communications and media relations.
Kennedy Center rescinds Bill Cosby’s Honors and Twain awards
In a first for the Kennedy Center, the board of trustees voted to rescind the high-profile awards it has given the comedian, who was convicted on three counts of sexual assault last month.
In a statement released Monday, the arts center said that Cosby’s conviction eclipsed his decades-long performance career.
“The Honors and Mark Twain Prize are given to artists who, through their lifetime of work, have left an indelible impact on American culture. As a result of Mr. Cosby’s recent criminal conviction, the Board concluded that his actions have overshadowed the very career accomplishments these distinctions from the Kennedy Center intend to recognize,” the statement said.
Bill Cosby Won’t Be Sentenced Until September
By Natalie Hope McDonald, Vulture, May 15, 2018
After being found guilty last month of three felony counts for drugging and sexually assaulting a woman in his home in 2004, Bill Cosby will be sentenced on September 24 and 25, according to a new court order issued today by Judge Steven O’Neill at the Montgomery County Courthouse outside of Philadelphia. Typically, sentencing occurs within a 90-day window from the date the verdict is announced.
Cosby, who turns 81 in July, faces up to 10 years on each of the three counts he’s been charged with for a maximum of 30 years in prison. While many legal experts predict it’s unlikely the elderly comedian will be sentenced to the maximum of three decades behind bars, Cosby will need to serve at least some mandatory time, even if it ends up being house arrest due to his legal blindness.
Depending on what the judge decides, Cosby is likely to be sent directly to jail following the September hearings, probably the Montgomery County Correctional Facility in Eagleville, Pa., or a state prison within the commonwealth.
The comedian is presently being evaluated by the court to determine his state of physical and mental health, and if he poses a risk to society. His lifetime of social work and philanthropic efforts will also be taken into consideration by the court upon sentencing. During the last few weeks, Cosby has been striped of many honorary degrees, and his famous sitcom The Cosby Show has been pulled from syndication.
Cosby is currently under house arrest on a $1 million bond, during which time he must wear a GPS tracking device. Cosby is not allowed to leave his home except for medical appointments and to meet with his lawyers. If he would need to leave the state, his travel must be arranged in advance and approved by the court. Cosby’s passport was revoked when he was found guilty after prosecutors cited concerns that he may be a flight risk.
Initially, the D.A. in this controversial case asked that Cosby be remanded to prison immediately following the guilty verdict. Judge O’Neill decided against it, opting instead to allow the comedian to await sentencing at his mansion due to his age and poor health.
During the two-day sentencing, it’s expected that witnesses will be permitted to give statements either for or against Cosby. There is no word on how many potential victims and accusers will be able to give their statements, or whether members of Cosby’s family will also appear at the hearing. Pennsylvania law allows Cosby to make a statement on his own behalf even though he did not testify in either of his two criminal trials.
It’s expected that his legal team will appeal the guilty verdict, and they have 10 days from sentencing in Pennsylvania to do so. Cosby also faces several civil trials in California starting this summer.
