Cosby got off very lightly for a lifetime of rape and abuse using the public persona he created. The women he damaged got a small measure of justice today.

I wonder just how long they will put him in jail, if he even goes to jail, considering his age.

Disgusting excuse for a man and human being.

Great news. May this predator rot in prison. Seize his assets to help pay for the care he'll consume.

For years and years, women with zero to gain have come forward accusing him of rape and nothing stuck.... finally something has. Do not care how good of a comedian / actor he was, he is a filthy predator and deserves to die in jail.

Lock him up!

Cosby, Saville that guy from glee. How many more wolves in sheeps clothing are still under the radar.

80 years old, better lock him up quickly before he dies.

The criminal downfall of a man who used to be right up there with Bozo the Clown, Captain Kangaroo and Mr. Rogers.

I'm surprised he didn't do a runner actually. He probably will now though, because he is facing some time in the big house.

Cosby was kind of the beginning of the MeToo movement.

Is this end a beginning of legal jeopardy for other men accused of sexual harassment and sexual assault? Hoping Weinstein is seen in court soon.

He will probably end his own life before being jailed. Sad story for his wife. Another person would have been taken into custody on the guilty verdict.

why is he free on bail?

I am a little astonished at that. Not like he could be sent home for time served. An appeal would really not happen quickly without something very egregious in the decision.

Probably because of his age. Let him go home and say bye before donning the orange jump suit.

These are strange times when even with several victims testifying against him, the women are still afraid Cosby could walk free

Just shows that women who were scared to say anything decades ago

does not mean it didn't happen

He’s already 80, he probably won’t serve the entire 30 years.

All these past idols, OJ and now Cosby....smh.

If it isn't a federal case courts generally have discretion to grant bail depending on the type of offense and flight risk of the defendant. Of course most of us court not afford to put up a million dollars but that alone isn't special treatment for a celebrity.

I remember when he berated other black people for not doing their best in life.
