The actor and comedian Bill Cosby has been constantly in the news this year; not for his talent but for some nasty accusations. Every day a new accuser comes out of the closet to tell her story. But no charge had been filed against Cosby until today. Will this be another case like the OJ Simpson trial? Will the black community, mainly African-American women, support the comedian as they did in the Simpson case?
Bill Cosby was finally charged today, 12/30/15, for sexually assaulting a woman at his home 12 years ago. This is the first criminal charge to be filed against the 78 years man who spent his life making the world laugh while having a dark side hidden from the public. Following the torrent of allegations that have destroyed his image, Mr. Bill Cosby will finally face justice. This very first charge could be the beginning of one of the most important trials in the country. The famous Hollywood star may be sent to jail.
By charging Cosby, the Montgomery County Attorney, Risa Vetri Ferman, has reversed the decision of her predecessor, who had refused to do so in 2005 after Andrea Constand, a former employee of Temple University, had told the police that the comedian had drugged and sexually assaulted her in his Philadelphia home.
The 42 year old woman is ready to deal with Bill Cosby in court said her lawyer, Dolores Troiani. “I think she’s a very strong lady… She’ll do whatever she needs to do, whatever they ask of her,” stated the lawyer. Bill Cosby should be formally charged with premeditated and aggravated indecent assault this Wednesday afternoon.
The First Court Appearance
Affected by numerous charges of sexual assault and rape in recent months, Bill Cosby, who is officially challenged for the first time by the American justice was to be presented to a judge in the middle of this afternoon. He will face the accusation of sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in an attack which occurred at his home. The famous creator and star of the series “The Cosby Show” is finally in hot water.
Bill Cosby Raped the Women by Drugging Them
Like all the other women, the alleged victim claimed the actor gave her pill to immobilize her in order to sexually assault her. Although there is one formal charge, Bill Cosby is accused by about fifty women for having raped them. The actor, now aged 78, started his criminal actions since 1960s, according to the accusers. But no woman had come out to publically denounce him until this year.
Mentioning charges regarding other offenses committed in the same jurisdiction, Kevin Steele asked anyone with information to contact him. Who knows, maybe other charges are on their way.
