Bill Cosby was convicted today of three counts of aggravated indecent assault over a 2004 sexual assault, per The New York Times. The verdict comes less than a year after a jury deadlocked on the same charges.

What he's facing: Each count is punishable by up to 10 years in prison, though Cosby could serve his sentences concurrently. Cosby was released on bail, pending sentencing, though he unleashed an expletive-laden rant against the district attorney after his verdict, per the AP. His attorney said that Cosby plans to appeal the sentence.
