Zip zop zoobity bop, whatever you’re doing stop! It looks like Bill Cosby will be standing trial on July 20 for his assault crimes he committed over a decade ago back in 2004. During a pretrial hearing Tuesday, a Pennsylvania judge found a substantial amount of evidence to proceed with a trial against Cosby.
Cosby faces three counts of felony indecent assault from the ’04 case involving Andrea Constand, an employee at his alma mater, Temple University. In her statement, Constand claimed Cosby invited her to his home and commanded her to wear comfortable clothes. Constand said she was given two pills to “take the edge off” and then was later sexually assaulted by Cosby.
The vision impaired 78-year-old actor walked into the courtroom today with his legal team, where they attempted to capitalize on the fact Constand was not present at the pretrial hearing. Regardless, the judge believed the evidence founded was sufficient enough to proceed for the future court date later this summer. If found guilty, he could serve up to 10 years in prison.
