(NBC News) A Pennsylvania jury has found Bill Cosby guilty of sexual assault in a trial that could send the comedian to prison for ten years.

Cosby was convicted of three counts of aggravated indecent assault against one victim, Andrea Constand. Constand claimed that Cosby drugged and assaulted her in his home in 2004. Cosby said their encounter was consensual. A previous trial on the same charges ended in a mistrial in June of 2017.

The conviction follows years of allegations against Cosby from multiple women. Five others testified that they were drugged and assaulted in a manner similar to Constand.

Cosby faces a maximum sentence of 10 years and a fine of up to $75,000.
