Andrea Constand leaves courthouse after Bill Cosby is found guilty of sexual assault

Bill Cosby has lashed out at prosecutors after being convicted of sexual assault.

After district attorney Kevin Steele asked to revoke bail for the former entertainer, saying he was a flight risk became he owned a private jet, Cosby reportedly stood up and loudly objected.

“He doesn’t have a plane, you a–hole”! Cosby said.

Cosby also shouted “I'm sick of him”! in apparent reference to Mr Steele.

Moments earlier, jurors had announced that they unanimously found Cosby guilty on three counts of aggravated indecent assault related to having drugged and penetrated Andrea Constand.

The conviction came after an earlier attempt to prosecute Cosby ended in a mistrial.

Dozens of women have alleged that Cosby engaged in sexual misconduct over the years.
