Bill Cosby Sex Assault Trial To Begin In Pennsylvania Courtroom

By

On Monday, Bill Cosby goes on trial in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, on charges that he drugged then sexually assaulted a college basketball manager, Andrea Constand, in 2004 at his mansion outside Philadelphia. Constand, 44, and another accuser, “Kacey,” will testify at the trial, but none of the other 40 or so women who have accused Cosby of drugging and assaulting them will tell their stories, after the judge ruled that their testimony would prejudice the jury of seven men and five women, two of them black and the other 10 white, who have been bussed in from Pittsburgh and sequestered. Cosby, 79, was a beloved TV actor until a damaging deposition was unsealed in 2015; he faces up to 10 years and $25,000 for each of three counts of aggravated indecent assault.
