Five women, in addition to Andrea Constand, testified for the prosecution at the trial that the TV star Bill Cosby had assaulted them. Cosby did not testify in his own defence. The five women joined a news conference outside the courthouse with lawyer, Gloria Allred, who represented many Cosby accusers. ‘We are so happy that finally we can say, women are believed, and not only in a hashtag #MeToo, but also in a court of law’, Allred said. ‘After all is said and done, women were finally believed, and we thank the jury for that’. Cosby, 80, faces a possible maximum prison sentence of 15 to 30 years.
