24 September, 2018, 21:15 | Author: Conrad Doyle
Bill Cosby, the comedian once known as "America's Dad", could be sentenced to life in prison this week after his conviction for sexual assault.
A second trial took place in April, and after two weeks, jurors agreed that the comedian was guilty of drugging and assaulting Constand in her home in 2004.
Monday morning, just a few hours before the sentencing hearing was to begin, Constand tweeted Ephesians 4:26, a Bible verse about letting go of anger: "Be wrathful, but do not sin; do not let the sun set while you are still angry; do not give the Devil an opportunity".
The judge can add up to a year for aggravating factors - such as the 60-some other accusers, Cosby's denials and lack of remorse, and even his defense team's repeated attacks on the judge and prosecutor. More than 50 other women also have accused him of sexual abuse going back decades.
Trying to avoid the predator designation for their client, Cosby's lawyers argued that the state law itself is unconstitutional.
