    Bill Cosby to be charged with sex crime

    Bill Cosby was charged Wednesday with drugging and sexually assaulting a woman at his home 12 years ago — the first criminal charges brought against the comedian out of the torrent of allegations that destroyed his good-guy image as America’s Dad.

    The case sets the stage for perhaps the biggest Hollywood celebrity trial of the mobile-all-the-time era and could send the 78-year-old Cosby to prison in the twilight of his life and barrier-breaking career.

    Prosecutors accused him of plying former Temple University employee Andrea Constand with pills and wine, then penetrating her with his fingers without her consent, while she was drifting in and out of consciousness, unable to resist or cry out.

    The prosecutor stated they brought these charges because of new evidence. I'm interested in finding out what that is.

    Yeah, I think at some point women were probably throwing it at him. Then as that slowed down he wasn't ready to stop and started to do what he did.

    Yeah, me too. As much of perverted creep that Cosby is, this case may be hard to win. They did not charge him before for a reason...the prosecutor must have thought it would be tough to win. I am VERY curious what the new evidence is...

    Interesting twist to this case. The D.A. prosecuting this case isn't even the D.A. yet. He ran on a campaign that he would bring charges against Cosby. He doesn't officially take office until next.

    Interesting, and according to the article, statute of limitations is 12 years and they only had a few more days to file to make it.

    I thought I saw something saying the DA declined to file charges against Cosby. Is that true?

    Yes, I am too lazy to hit Google.

    A former DA did. Doesn't stop the next one from doing so, as long as statute of limitations haven't run out.

    Didn't the new DA file just days before it ran out? Someone mentioned that here perhaps it was you?

    Yes. The new DA filed the charges less than a week before the deadline , before the new DA even took office officially.

    Like I've said multiple times where there is smoke there is fire , so I'm sure Cosby has done something wrong to women in the past. But this specific case seems very shady to me. I want to know what the new evidence is that the new DA claims to have. The old DA didn't think there was any evidence.
