After Bill Cosby received a sentence of up to 10 years behind bars for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand, RadarOnline.com exclusively spoke with two other accusers who have claimed Bill Cosby also violated them.

"I believe justice was served,” said Linda Traitz, who is involved with a Massachusetts defamation suit against Cosby. “He hurt a lot of women. I think he deserves that amount of time in prison.”

Traitz, a former waitress at the West Hollywood eatery Café Figaro, which was formerly co-owned by Cosby, claimed in a Facebook post that Cosby offered her drugs when she was 19 and drove her to a beach in Los Angeles after offering her a ride home.

Traitz, now 66, said the disgraced comedian then became “sexually aggressive,” groped her and tore her skirt.

A second accuser, Joan Tarshis, told Radar, “Everyone is happy with the court ruling.”

In an open letter, 68-year-old Tarshis, a former comedy writer who is involved in the same defamation suit as Traitz, accused Cosby of raping her twice in 1969 when she was also 19.

As Radar reported, Cosby, 81, was sentenced to between three and 10 years behind bars in a Pennsylvania prison for the sexual assault of Andrea Constand in 2004.

“It is time for justice,” Judge Steven T. O’Neill told the disgraced comedian in court. “It is time for justice in a court of law. Mr. Cosby, this has all circled back to you. The day has come. Your time has come.”

Constand, 45, penned a five-page victim impact statement before the sentence was handed down.

“Three blue pills. And he put his hand out and I said, ‘What are those?’ And he said, ‘They’ll help you relax,’” Constand recalled of how Cosby assaulted her. “And I said, ‘Are they natural? Are they, like, a herbal remedy?’ And he said, ‘No, they’re your friends. Just put them down.’”

“I trusted that they would maybe just help me feel a little more relaxed,” she continued, noting after she took the pills she began to slur her words, and lost control of her body.

“I was crying out inside, in my throat, in my mind, for this to stop. And I couldn’t do anything,” Constand said.
