It was the second trial for Cosby on charges of drugging and sexually assaulting women, following an earlier mistrial. The jury of five women and seven men deliberated for 14 hours.

The centerpiece of the trial had been testimony by Cosby’s lead accuser, Andrea Constand, a former Temple University employee who said the comedian drugged and raped her at his Philadelphia-area home in 2004.

Cosby reportedly showed no emotion as today’s verdict was read. Other accusers of the entertainer in the court gallery are said to have burst into tears.

Although more than 35 women have accused Cosby of similar sexual violations, only Constand’s allegations have led to criminal charges and, now, a conviction … so far.
