The jury agreed that Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted Constand at his home in a Philadelphia suburb in 2004.
"I've been holding this in since 1982 and it's slowly seeping out of me, the toxicity levels of emotion and catastrophic pain and nightmares for so very many years", she said, revealing her husband, Dr. Robert Gerner, awoke her with the Cosby news.
I saw the footage of Lili Bernard and her friend Caroline Heldman on social media, sound muted, moments after the second trial of Bill Cosby ended.
"When it started to sink in, I got so disgusted", Lublin said.
Sorry to break this to you, Bill, but Cliff Huxtable is history.
It was the only criminal case to arise from a barrage of allegations from more than 60 women who said the former TV star drugged and molested them over a span of five decades. But minutes later, prosecutors asked the judge to revoke Cosby's bail because, they said, he had a private plane and might skip town.
In the retrial, five women who accuse Cosby of assault were allowed to testify as witnesses of prior "bad acts" that weren't directly connected to the facts in Constand's case - a decision Black says was entirely discretionary and for which he can see no legal reason except "to be politically correct and to ensure a conviction". A sentencing hearing before Judge Steven O'Neill has not yet been scheduled.
Clarifying the terms of the disgraced star's $1m bail, Judge Steven O'Neill said Cosby can travel only within the greater Philadelphia area, and exclusively for medical treatment or to meet his legal team upon written request. No sentencing date has been set.
Amid all that talk outside the courthouse, Cosby did not speak. His legal team had depicted her in court as a cash-strapped "con artist" and liar who was interested in only one thing: "Money, money and lots more money".
Shrieks erupted in the courtroom when the verdict was announced, and some of his accusers whimpered and cried. Constand remained stoic, then hugged her lawyer and members of the prosecution team.
The disgraced comedian first went to trial previous year, and the case ended in a mistrial after the jury failed to deliver a verdict. Only one other accuser was permitted to testify at Cosby's first trial.
"These survivors are being heard and believed", Robbin said.
Ms Constand reported the attack, but the district attorney refused to press charges.
"The rules have been changed to allow prosecutors to present other accusers besides those that are the basis of the charge", he says. "He used his celebrity, he used his wealth, he used his network of supporters to help him hide his crimes". We don't think Mr Cosby is guilty of anything.
A judge has confined Bill Cosby to his home until the comedian is sentenced after being found guilty of sexually assaulting a woman.
With each count carrying a maximum of 10 years, Cosby faces a maximum of 30 years in prison.
Cosby is best known for starring in the 1980s TV series The Cosby Show.
Clearly, this wasn't going to be your grandmother's Cosby trial any more. Cosby's lawyers tried unsuccessfully to have the man removed.
She testified that she saw the famed comedian and Temple trustee as a mentor. Constand sued Cosby after prosecutors initially declined to file charges, settling with him for almost $3.4 million over a decade ago. Cosby remains out on bail.
But Cosby had long ago confirmed some of the rumours about drugs and extramarital sex.
Cosby became famous in the 1960s years, thanks to the television series "I spy".
He had been "foolish" and "ridiculous" in being attracted to a younger woman but he was no criminal.
But in the court of public opinion, at least, this was not just about Cosby versus Constand. An alarming amount of workers appear to believe that even their original employment contracts are enough to gag them when something goes terribly wrong at work.
