Bill Cosby Charged in 2004 Sexual Assault Case in Pennsylvania

Comedian Bill Cosby will be charged in the investigation of a 2004 sexual assault case in Pennsylvania.


An arrest warrant was issued for Cosby in relation to a 2004 incident at his Elkins Park, Pennsylvania, mansion in which he drugged and sexually assaulted former Temple University employee Andrea Constand.

“Obviously we appreciate the expression of confidence in her,” Constand’s attorney, Dolores Troiani, said.

“We’ll have to see what happens. We hope justice will be done. We will cooperate fully.”

 Cosby previously maintained that the interaction between he and Constand was consensual, though the 42-year-old has said otherwise. At the time, she said, she was in a relationship with a woman. Constand called Cosby a “narcassist” who ignored the fact that she was gay.

Cosby was not charged in the sexual assault of Constand in 2005, after a district attorney declined to do so.

Prosecutors reopened the case after new evidence was presented and dozens of other women went public with similar allegations against the 78-year-old comedian.
