Bill Cosby’s true colors showed as he lashed out in court after the district attorney demanded his $1 million bail be revoked when he was found guilty of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand. As DA Kevin Steele demanded the comedian’s bail be revoked because he is a flight risk, Cosby, who was all smiles as he walked in to court ahead of the verdict, yelled out that ‘he doesn’t have a plane, you a**hole’ in outrage. It came after the jury of seven men and five women unanimously found Cosby guilty on all three counts of aggravated sexual assault: administering an intoxicant, rendering his victim unconscious and penetrating her without consent.
The 80-year-old now faces spending the rest of his life in prison as each count carries a sentence of up to ten years imprisonment. After the verdict was read, defense attorney Tom Mesereau met briefly with the press and said: ‘The fight is not over.’
Upon Steele’s request to have Cosby’s bail revoked, Judge O’Neill asked: ‘What is it that you’re saying will occur? That he will flee? What evidence do you have …to revoke the bail of an individual who has shown up for every single hearing over the past two years.’ Steele argued: ‘The defense said at the beginning that $3.38million is nothing to him. ‘I don’t think any amount of bail can assure his presence under these circumstances. We ask that jail be revoked.’
Asked where he thought Cosby would go, Steele said: ‘Anywhere. He has a plane.’ At this Cosby yelled that ‘he doesn’t have a plane you a**hole!’ O’Neill called for order but went on to berate Steele, who has not made any move to have bail raised throughout the past two years for seeking to have it revoked. He said: ‘Based upon his age and his medical condition I’m not going to simply lock him up at this stage.’
