Bill Cosby was found guilty Thursday on charges for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in 2004. Cosby has faces ten years in prison for each count, but a sentencing hearing has not been scheduled yet.

Cosby is out on bail, which was set for one million dollars. Prosecutors had fought Cosby’s bail, saying he is a flight risk and owns a private plane. Judge Steven O’Neill ruled that Cosby should stay in his home and stated that since Crosby owns homes in multiple states, if he leaves the state for another residence he must wear a GPS tracking device and make arrangements with the proper authorities.

The verdict came a year after the first trial ended in mistrial. The new panel of jurors worked for more than 14 hours over two days to reach the verdict.

This trial was the first celebrity sexual assault case since the #metoo movement.
