The Bill Cosby conviction of today does bring some interesting aspects to light

Today Bill Cosby was convicted of rape for a case in 1975 against a 16yo female. I will not focus on the level of scrutiny to achieve this conviction or the conduct of the 16yo, let’s assume for the shake of discussion, that the whole thing did happen exactly as proven in the court of law.
The damages are in the level of 500k. Does a rape cost that much? If a poor guy rapes, should he give so much money back in retribution? Were Bill Cosby not as successful, would he be paying that? Had she successfully sued him at an earlier stage of his career, when B.Cosby did not have as much money, would she had been attributed less money?
