Two women who’ve accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault recalled Friday the sheer joy of learning he was guilty – and said he deserves to rot in prison for what he’s done.
“The first thing that went through my mind is joy and overwhelming tears,” Janice Baker-Kinney said Friday on “Good Morning America.” “Tears of joy, but I couldn’t stop sobbing.”
Baker-Kinney and Lise-Lotte Lublim, a sixth-grade teacher, were among five women who testified at Cosby’s retrial that the comedian drugged and molested them.
Lublim’s husband called her with the news.
“He said, ‘It’s guilty, it’s guilty’ and I just began to shake,” Lublim recalled. “My stomach started tumbling and I didn’t know what I was going to do. I was just like, ‘I just have to get out of here. I’ve got to get out of this room.’”
A jury convicted Cosby of three counts of aggravated indecent assault in the 2004 attack of former Temple University basketball administrator Andrea Constand at his Cheltenham, Pennsylvania home.
Baker-Kinney claimed Cosby assaulted her in 1982 when she was 24.
Lublim said she met Cosby in his Las Vegas hotel room in 1989 and that he gave her pills that made her pass out.
She testified because “it was my responsibility.”
“It really let people understand and know what had happened and that he should be responsible for his actions,” Lublim told ABC. “He was extremely pitiful looking and sad and he didn’t look like the massive man that he was portrayed as from the past, so it was really kind of sad to see him that way.”
Baker-Kinney said she wants to see the disgraced comic locked up for good.
“It wouldn’t break my heart to see him spend the rest of his life in jail,” she said. “He sentenced many women to years and years of therapy and inner jail. I just think he deserves to spend an appropriate time and if that means dying in jail, it won’t break my heart.”
Lublim said she agreed “100 percent.”
“He needs to pay for his acts by going to jail and maybe that will give some of the victims of his an opportunity to heal a little bit,” she said. “He’s still responsible and everyone knows the truth now.”
