But he actually raped people.
And there lies the problem....needing two trials to suggest it was rape. If what he did was so bad why did the woman continue to see him after the incident? I don't think we are talking about a situation where he one dated people just to rape them. What many didn't seem to see as a big deal back when the events happened all of a sudden see it that way today. I wonder if someone who was into consensual bondage would have #MeToo women coming forward suggesting that person tied them up for sex if that person was extremely rich.
With that said I have no issues with him going to jail for a crime, I just wonder how much of it was considered a crime by the alleged victim(s) back when these things happened.

Its reportedly 60 women that are accusers. The judge chose 5 to be witnesses and take the stand. All 60 women can speak before sentencing.

He’s facing up to a max of 30 years for the three counts, doubt he’ll get them.

After hearing him talk, a while back, he doesn't sound like he has a sound enough mind to even be standing trial at this point.
I'm glad that all those women are getting "justice", but it just doesn't feel right for him to die in prison.
It's the age old question of whether the penal system should be based on punishment or rehabilitation. If it's intent is punishment, then I reckon Cosby should find himself behind bars. If it is rehabilitation, what's the point? He certainly poses no threat to anyone today, so hack his estate apart in civil court and be done with it.
