VIDEO: Cosby Arrives at Court for Arraignment on Sexual Assault Charges
New video shows Bill Cosby walking into a Pennsylvania courthouse after being charged with sexually assaulting a woman in 2004.
The charge of felony aggravated indecent assault against William Henry Cosby was announced this morning by Montgomery County First Assistant District Attorney Kevin Steele.
The 12-year statute of limitations on the alleged crime was just about to run out. Cosby has now posted a $100,000 bond in the case.
He got out of a black SUV and was led into the courthouse as reporters shouted questions at him about the charges.
Cosby did not answer, tripping over the curb as he walked in to be booked.
Below is his mugshot...
Though Cosby has been accused of rape by more than 50 women, the charges today only pertain to one alleged victim, Andrea Constand.
Cosby, 78, has maintained that the many allegations of sexual assault against him are false. In this case, he has said that he and Constand had consensual sex.
A former Temple University employee told police the comedian drugged and violated her at his home near Philadelphia in 2004.
A previous district attorney declined to charge Cosby in 2005.
Prosecutors reopened the case over the summer as damaging testimony was unsealed in a related civil lawsuit against Cosby and as dozens of other women came forward with similar accusations that made a mockery of his image as the wise and understanding Dr. Cliff Huxtable from TV’s “The Cosby Show.”
