The Cosby Show reruns pulled from BounceTV after guilty verdict

Temple University is considering rescinding Bill Cosby's honorary degree after a jury found him guilty of sexual assault. Cosby claimed the encounter was consensual.

In a deposition he gave over a decade ago as part of Constand's lawsuit, Cosby acknowledged he had obtained quaaludes to give to women he wanted to have sex with, "the same as a person would say, 'Have a drink.'" The sedative was a popular party drug before it was banned in the USA more than 30 years ago.

The victim, Andrea Constand, is now 45 years old.

After the verdict was handed down, District Attorney Kevin Steele asked the judge to revoke bail, prompting an angry outcry from Cosby. His sentencing should take place in the next 90 days while many experts believe that Cosby will be in prison until he is at least 85 years old.

The charges were first brought to trial last June, but the jury ended in a deadlock on all charges after more than 50 hours of deliberations. In a freakish turn of events, Cosby then stood up and began comically barking like a dog.

His defense team tried to paint Constand as a con artist who showed romantic interest in the comedian in order to concoct false assault allegations and secure a almost $3.4-million civil settlement, at one point calling her a "pathological liar".

Trump, whose inauguration and first anniversary as president were met with nationwide women's protests, denies accusations of sexual misconduct and accuses rival Democrats and the media of a smear campaign. Constand is a con artist, they argued, who wanted a piece of Cosby's fortune.

She alleged that he abused her trust when he invited her to his home and offered her three blue pills to help her relax. But for the retrial, prosecutors were able to call on five other accusers who testified that they too were drugged by Cosby. This time around, the judge allowed five such women to take the stand.
