After thirteen years of accusations of sexual assault, comedian Bill Cosby was convicted of drug and sexual abuse on April 26 at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pennsylvania, according to CNN. He faces up to ten years of prison for each count.

Though many women were allegedly involved, one woman in particular, former Temple University employee Andrea Constand, took a stand against the once household name.

In 2005 when Constand first accused Cosby, Cosby admitted to using quaaludes, a powerful sedative, to have sex with women. Cosby settled the lawsuit by paying Constand $3.38 million in exchange for Constand’s silence about the case, according to prosecutors of the case.  

“They’re never in the mood for us,” Cosby wrote in his book “Childhood,” describing how to get females interested. “They need chemicals.”

The case was opened again in 2017, and the judges agreed on a verdict. With the growth of the #MeToo movement, many victims of assault were empowered and encouraged to come forward and speak up.

“I can finally lay down my shield and sword for a while,” Patricia Steuer, one of the women who testified, said to the New York Times after the verdict was announced. “I’m a little weary and feel battered, but right now I’m thrilled.”
