Famous African American comedian, Bill Cosby, was convicted on Thursday of drugging and molesting a onetime friend in 2004.

He faces up to 10 years in prison for each of three counts of aggravated indecent assault against 45-year old Andrea Constand.

The three counts were penetration with lack of consent, penetration while unconscious and penetration after administering an intoxicant.

All the counts are felonies, each punishable by up to 10 years in state prison, though the sentences could be served concurrently, The New York Times reported.
