A Pennsylvania jury convicted actor and comedian Bill Cosby on three counts of aggravated indecent assault Thursday, concluding a two-week retrial that ended in deadlock last year. Cosby faces up to 30 years in prison for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand, a Temple University employee he mentored. Although scores of women have accused Cosby of sexual assault, Constand's is the only criminal case brought against him. We discuss the verdict and hear your reactions.
