The woman whose accusations against Bill Cosby just resulted in him being convicted as a sex offender is happy to see justice delivered, but she's made her personal peace with the man. "I forgive him for what he did to me," Andrea Constand tells NBC's Dateline in an interview that aired in full Friday. "It's been many, many years. And if I did not forgive him, I wouldn't have peace. And I sit here today and I have my peace." However, she called Cosby "sick" and said he needs to get help and to genuinely repent. In an earlier excerpt, Constand detailed how Cosby gave her pills he called "friends" and then sexually assaulted her in his Pennsylvania home in 2004. (More Andrea Constand stories.)
