Bill Cosby’s conviction is one of the greatest show business downfalls of all time

A bald-headed Bill Cosby looks downcast as his verdict is revealedRELATED STORY: ‘America’s Dad’ Bill Cosby convicted over drugging and molesting of a woman
From America’s Dad to convictions on all three counts of drugging and sexually assaulting a young woman โ€” Bill Cosby’s downfall is complete.

Today he shuffled from court on his cane to the waiting black suburban SUV pursued by news helicopters as he tried to shake the press.

The choice of car and cane (which often didn’t touch the ground) were humble for a man of his means and an attempt to manage a toxic image.

He failed to convince the most important people, the jury, and he’ll likely face an even humbler ride to prison in the near future.

Last year, I covered Cosby’s first trial which ended in a hung jury after six days of deliberations.
