Bill Cosby is lashing out at prosecutors after a jury convicted him of three counts of aggravated indecent assault.
The jury at Cosby's first trial deliberated for more than 52 hours over six days past year without reaching a verdict.
And that could have been the end of it for Constand, even though she knew then she was not the only woman to say Cosby had drugged and sexually assaulted her.

Even Daniels's attorney, Michael Avenatti , couldn't believe the development; he tweeted a thank-you to the Fox and Friends . A legitimate news organization would have asked Trump WHY Cohen was doing this work, but I think we all already know why.
But in the end, it was the years-old account of one of Cosby's very first accusers that now threatens to send him to prison, potentially for the rest of his life.
Prosecutor Kristen Feden seized on the characterization of Constand as a scheming con artist during closing arguments, saying it was Cosby who deployed his wholesome TV image to gain the trust of women he planned to incapacitate and assault. Defense attorney Tom Mesereau called Constand a "pathological liar".
Cosby, 80, faces up to 10 years years in prison after a jury concluded he sexually violated Temple University employee Andrea Constand at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004. His first case ended in a mistrial last June.
Around 60 women, many of them onetime aspiring actresses and models, came forward publicly to brand him a calculating, serial predator who plied victims with sedatives and alcohol to bed them over four decades.

"Justice has been done!" celebrity attorney Gloria Allred, who represented some of Cosby's accusers, said on the courthouse steps. They embraced, smiled and chatted, and he gave her a peck on the cheek. After O'Neill mentioned the dog, Cosby stood up at the defense table and made a comical, barking-like motion with his mouth.
The three counts constituted penetration without Constand's consent, which took place both while she was unconscious and after she had been drugged.
Prosecutors used Cosby's past admissions about drugs and sex as well as the testimony of five other women to help support accuser Andrea Constand's allegations. Thirteen Jane Doe witnesses had been deposed and were ready to testify on her behalf for the criminal trial that never materialized. Prosecutors in Montgomery County at the time decided not to file charges in the case, and Constand and Cosby settled a civil lawsuit for $3.38 million in 2006. Cosby denied the charges, claiming the encounter was consensual. For so long, it felt as though Cosby was able to hide behind both his wealth and also this feeling that he still had supporters out there who considered him to be untouchable. "Sitting right here. This is the man". "That man!" she shouted, pointing at Cosby.
