Bill Cosby Charged with Crime in Philadelphia for sexual assault. Unlike the civil lawsuits that he has settled out of court in the past, Cosby will not be able to throw money at the accusation to make it go away. These charges are criminal and will be settled in a courtroom by a jury.
Cosby claimed the 2005 incident, which in 2006 was settled during a civil suit, was innocuous and that his accuser consented to the act by failing to object or stop him--even though he admitted to having given her pills and wine before fondling her. His accuser claimed then and maintains today that she was incapable of fighting him off as she was slipping in and out of consciousness. She went to the police but the DA refused to press criminal charges for "lack of evidence."
But one must consider the likelihood that this woman would have consented to sexual advances from a man. Any man. The victim is a gay female who was in a steady relationship with a female at the time of the incident.
