A Pennsylvania judge has ruled there is enough evidence to proceed with a criminal sexual assault trial against comedian Bill Cosby. About 60 women have accused Cosby of sexual assaults dating back decades. But in many cases the statute of limitations has lapsed. In this case, Andrea Constand accused Cosby of drugging and sexually assaulting her at his home in 2004. The former district attorney in Montgomery County chose not to bring charges in the case back in 2005, but prosecutors reopened the case last year amid a tidal wave of other accusations against Cosby. The current DA, Kevin Steele, vowed to move forward.
Kevin Steele: “There’s the point of this, is that it was intoxicating to her and that she was unable to consent. You know, that’s the crime. That’s the charges that were bound over. And we look forward to handling this in court.”
