BREAKING NEWS: BILL COSBY TO BE CHARGED WITH SEXUAL ASSAULT
Bill Cosby was charged with sexual assault in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania on Wednesday. District Attorney Kevin Steele said his office found evidence that Cosby drugged and digitally penetrated Andrea Constand, a former Temple University employee, at his home in 2004. "In the course of their association, the victim came to consider Mr. Cosby a mentor and a friend," Steele said, adding that Cosby allegedly gave Constand pills and wine, "the effect of which rendered her unable to move." The alleged use of quaaludes led Steele to raise the indecent assault charge to be aggravated, which is a first-degree felony. A warrant has been issued for Cosby's arrest. Constand reported the incident in 2005, which left prosecutors until Jan. 1, 2016 to charge Cosby before the 12-year statute of limitations ran out.
