News of Bill Cosby being found guilty on all three counts in his sexual assault trial erupted across social media Thursday as a handful of celebrities took to Twitter to applaud the verdict.
Cosby, 80, was originally charged in 2015. He faced three counts of aggravated assault related to an encounter with a former Temple University employee, Andrea Constand, in his Cheltenham home.

He was accused of drugging and molesting Constand in 2004. During the trial, five other women testified to also having been drugged and assaulted by Cosby.
The initial trial last year, also held at a courthouse in Norristown, Pennsylvania, garnered national attention. It ended in mistrial after the jury deadlocked.
