Published April 27, 2018

As expected, Bill Cosby was likely displeased with the guilty verdict he received in connection to his sexual assault retrial. In fact, according to reports, the 80-year-old comedian had a profanity-laced outburst directed towards District Attorney Kevin Steele soon after the jury was dismissed.

According to CNN, the spirited reaction was sparked after Steele's argument that Cosby's $1 million bail should be revoked as he might flee to anywhere in the world. He went on to argue that the fallen comic had a private plane and that there was no set dollar amount that would guarantee his appearance.

At that point, enraged at his comment, Cosby stood up and yelled, "He doesn't have a private plane, you a**hole!"

Judge Steven O'Neill, who is presiding over the case, decided not to revoke the bail, adding, "I'm not simply going to lock him up, right now."

Specifically addressing Steele, Judge O'Neill said, "You are making a very big deal of something where there is a very high bail and he has appeared at every appearance."

The judge further instructed that Cosby be put on house arrest, preventing him from leaving his Pennsylvania home or the state, as a whole. Arrangements were also made for a GPS tracking device to be attached to the accused.

As previously reported, Cosby was found guilty of all three counts of aggravated indecent assault for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand. He now faces up to 10 years in prison on each count. A sentencing is yet to be scheduled.
