NORRISTOWN, Pa. — Several women who are among some 60 who’ve accused Bill Cosby of drugging and molesting them staged an emotional celebration of his conviction Thursday, calling it a victory in the era of #MeToo.
“I feel like I’m dreaming. Can you pinch me?” sobbed accuser Lili Bernard on the steps of the Montgomery County Courthouse, where a jury found Cosby guilty of sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in 2004. “This is a victory not just for Andrea Constand. Thank you so much to the jury for positioning yourself on the right side of history.”
Celebrity attorney Gloria Allred, who represented some of the Cosby accusers, read aloud statements from three of the women who testified against the fallen funnyman earlier this month.
