He didn't visibly react when the jury found him guilty on three counts of aggravated indecent assault. But minutes later, prosecutors asked the judge to revoke Cosby's bail because, they said, he had a private plane and might skip town. Cosby erupted.

"He doesn't have a plane, you asshole," Cosby boomed, referring to himself in the 3rd person.

Well, "asshole" is a bit harsh. Lying douche-bag (private airplane? Seriously? Lying to change bail arrangements), might be better.

IIRC there was a mistrial so they tried him again.

Yes.

The prosecution was able to introduce evidences--you are welcome--of his prior bad acts which is controversial and not a simple problem of weighing probative value against prejudice. The defense also introduced evidences--yadda . . . yadda--that the accuser claimed she would make a lot of money by falsely accusing someone to an academic advisor-thingy some years in the past.

Whether the former will serve to overturn the conviction is a matter for various Legal Talking Heads.

Rob Lister wrote:$100 dollar pool Pick two. 0 years to 30 I pick 0 and 29 Looks like he may see no jail time, due the appeal if nothing else... Why Bill Cosby may not spend any time in prison .... On Thursday, O'Neill dismissed the prosecution's plea to revoke Cosby's$1 million bail and remand him to jail.
"I'm not simply going to lock him up right now," the judge said, citing his age and his track record of appearing at every hearing for two and a half years.
Sounds like the judge thinks the DA's an asshole too!
...
"You are making a very big deal of something where there is a very high bail and he has appeared at every appearance," O'Neill said.

For now, Cosby is not permitted to leave his Pennsylvania home. If he does leave the state for another home, it would have to be arranged ahead of time and he would have to wear a GPS monitoring device, the judge ruled.

If O'Neill does allow Cosby to remain free during appeals, and the legal action lasts for years, then there's a question of whether the comedian's age and health will make that sentence moot.
Most likely outcome IMHO...YMMV

Re: The Cosby Show

Bill Cosby's wife called Thursday for a criminal investigation into the suburban Philadelphia prosecutor behind his sexual assault conviction, saying the case that could put the 80-year-old comedian in prison for the rest of his life was "mob justice, not real justice" and a "tragedy."

Associated Press
Yeah.

That will happen.

Interesting video, worth a peruse if you are interested..

It goes into an interesting scenario at ~ 20 minutes in.

Is there an ABYT;DW version? (Argument By Youtube, Didn't Watch)
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"
