Bill Cosby Charged With Sexual Assault
It’s official. Pennsylvania prosecutors filed sexual assault charges yesterday against the 78-year-old comedian over an alleged incident in 2004 involving former Temple University employee Andrea Constand, 42, who was the first of dozens of women to publicly accuse the TV father figure. Believing they had a “sincere friendship,” the charging document alleges, Constand took three blue pills and wine offered by Cosby and then experienced weakness and blurred vision before being assaulted. Cosby was released on $1 million bail. If convicted, the funnyman could face up to 10 years in prison.
