On Thursday, a jury found Bill Cosby guilty of drugging and sexually assaulting a woman in his home almost 14 years ago.

The guilty verdict has brought on the downfall of one of the world’s best-known entertainers and offering a measure of satisfaction to the dozens of women who for years have accused him of similar assaults against them.

On the second day of its deliberations at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Philadelphia, the jury returned to convict Mr. Cosby of three counts of aggravated indecent assault against Andrea Constand, at the time a Temple University employee whom Bill Cosby had mentored.

The three counts — penetration with lack of consent, penetration while unconscious and penetration after administering an intoxicant — are felonies, each punishable by up to 10 years in state prison, though the sentences could be served concurrently.

It was the second time a jury had considered Mr. Cosby’s fate. His first trial last year ended with a deadlocked jury after six days of deliberations.

Bill Cosby, who was referred to as “America’s dad” is now facing the possibility of spending time in prison.
