The jury came back with guilty verdicts on all three counts of aggravated indecent assault Thursday in the trial of Bill Cosby. The 80-year-old former comedian faces up to 10 years in prison on each count, but would likely serve them concurrently.
Constand initially told police about the assault in 2005, a year after the assault occurred.
Attorney Gloria Allred, who represents 33 of the Cosby accusers, rejoiced that Cosby was found "guilty, guilty, guilty". He says the woman consented.
"I want to see a serial rapist convicted", Thomas said. "I feel live my faith in humanity is restored".
Cosby waved to the crowd outside the courthouse, got into an SUV and left without saying anything.

Cosby's attorneys said they were disappointed by the verdict and planned to appeal. We don't think Mr. Cosby's guilty of anything.
Cosby, who did not testify in the trial and has sat quietly throughout the proceedings, then stood up and yelled in a loud, booming voice: "He doesn't have a plane, you asshole". The lead lawyer on Bill Cosby's case fell asleep during the reading of prior testimonies by a judge.
Judge Steven O'Neill ruled that Cosby should not leave his Pennsylvania home, and that he would need to be fitted with a Global Positioning System tracking device. This jury began deliberating Wednesday around 11 a.m., and worked for more than 14 hours over two days to reach the verdict.
Cosby stared straight ahead as the verdict was read but moments later lashed out loudly at District Attorney Kevin Steele after the prosecutor demanded the former TV star be sent immediately to jail. "It was the right thing to do".

But police later abandoned efforts to clear streets in the centre, saying it could not take sides in a political crisis. The parliament's move to keep Sargsyan in power echoed a maneuver by Russian President Vladimir Putin a decade ago.
"The time for the defendant to escape justice is over", prosecutor Stewart Ryan said in his closing argument.
She said the pills made her feel woozy, and when she was jolted awake Cosby was digitally penetrating her vagina, touching her breasts and masturbating himself with her hand.
Cosby also acknowledged giving pills to Constand before their sexual encounter. Last year, just one other accuser could take the stand. Cosby's lawyers had motioned to prevent the other accusers from testifying, fearing a #MeToo atmosphere would take over the courtroom. With the statute of limitations having expired for the rest of them, the fate of Cosby rested exclusively in the hands of the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office.
Marguerite Jackson's testimony that Constand once spoke of framing a prominent person to score a big payday will be read back to the jury when court resumes outside Philadelphia on Thursday.
His retrial began April 9. He also spoke about his encounter with Constand, whom he paid almost $3.4 million in a 2006 settlement of her claims. Tom Mesereau called Constand a "pathological liar" and the other witnesses "failed starlets".
