'Truth prevails,' Andrea Constand tweets day after Cosby verdict

Posted at 8:36 AM, Apr 27, 2018

Andrea Constand is giving thanks to the Pennsylvania county where Bill Cosby was found guilty of assaulting her -- and presumably its prosecutors and jurors -- in her first post-trial tweet.

"A very profound and heartfelt thank you to the Commonwealth of PA, Montgomery County, for their service and sacrifices. Congratulations," her tweet from Friday morning reads.

"Truth prevails," the tweet ends.



Cosby, the 80-year-old comedian, was found guilty Thursday of three counts of aggravated indecent assault for drugging and sexually assaulting Constand at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004.

The verdict came a year after Cosby's previous trial ended in a mistrial when a different panel of jurors said they were deadlocked and could not unanimously agree on a verdict.

A sentencing hearing with Judge Steven O'Neill has not yet been scheduled, and Cosby remains out on bail.
