The defense is attempting to throw out a deposition Cosby gave in which he admitted to giving women drugs and then having sex with them.
All it took was 12 years and a Kathleen Kane conviction to seal the deal.
Attorneys in the case spent the afternoon arguing over the validity of charges filed against Cosby that were approved during a May preliminary hearing.
Also, the 78-year-old comedian’s attorneys implied prosecutors’ arguments to avoid re-victimization were invalid.
That question is central to why the disgraced comedian is — once again — back in Montgomery County Court today.
In the wake of dozens of allegations against the disgraced comedian, is it time to allow victims to report sexual assault more than 12 years after it happened?
An attorney for the Catholic Church in the sex abuse scandal says “how is that a victory? My client dies with a cloud over his head,” but seemingly endless appeals loom.
Montgomery County Judge Steven O’Neil has ruled the comedian must face sex assault charges.
Testimony ends in Bill Cosby hearing over ‘a secret agreement that permits a wealthy defendant to buy his way out’
Judge Steven O’Neil did not give any indication about a ruling, saying the prosecution would still be allowed to call witnesses if he couldn’t yet decide on the status of the charges against the comedian.
The comedian’s defense team began calling witnesses in the status hearing on sexual assault charges, held at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown.
The decade-old oral agreement tied to testimony in a civil lawsuit could make or break the first sexual assault case filed against the comedian after a year of high-profile accusations.
What took so long?
