BounceTV has chose to stop airing The Cosby Show reruns after Bill Cosby was found guilty in his sexual assault trial Thursday morning. Cosby claimed the encounter was consensual.

A jury in Pennsylvania on Thursday found Cosby guilty of three counts of aggravated indecent assault after a two week re-trial on the case concluded.

The 80-year-old former comedian faces up to 10 years in prison on each count, but would likely serve them concurrently.

Judge Steven O'Neill decided Cosby can remain free on $1 million bail while he awaits sentencing but restricted him to Montgomery County, where his home is.

His defense team tried to paint Constand as a con artist who showed romantic interest in the comedian in order to concoct false assault allegations and secure a almost $3.4-million civil settlement, at one point calling her a "pathological liar". Cosby did not take the stand.

Cosby lowered his head and took a deep breath when the verdicts were announced, while three of his accusers who attended the trial burst into loud tears of joy. In "The Cosby Show" from 1984 to 1992, he played the wise and witty Dr. Heathcliff Huxtable, the father of an affluent black family.

Even though dozens of women have come out with stories of Cosby's misconduct over the years, the previous trial against him ended with a hung jury. While the defense team argued that accuser Andrea Constand lobbed false statements against Cosby in order to gain a civil lawsuit settlement, prosecutors used Cosby's past admissions about drugs and sex and other female accusers' testimonies for their argument.

Cosby's new defense team, led by Mesereau, the celebrity attorney who won an acquittal for Michael Jackson on child-molestation charges, launched a highly aggressive attack on Constand, calling her a "con artist" and "pathological liar" who framed Cosby to get rich. Four of them, including model Janice Dickinson, said they were also sexually assaulted.
