Bill Cosby Charged with Aggravated Indecent Assault
Today in Norristown, Pennsylvania, Kevin Steele, First Assistant District Attorney in Montgomery County announced at a press conference that Bill Cosby has been charged with aggravated indecent assault. Cosby has been accused by many women of raping them over the last few decades. While some of these cases have wound up in civil court, he has never been charged criminally.
These charges could land Bill Cosby in prison for 20 years which would mean he would die in prison. He is alleged to have given the alleged victim pills which rendered her unable to consent to any sexual encounter. Cosby is alleged to have then raped her.
It is interesting to note that the former D.A. did not find enough evidence to prosecute Cosby. The alleged victim, Andrea Constand has filed a defamation suit against the former prosecutor.
Cosby will be arraigned today around 4pm.
