Bill Cosby is finally charged with sexual assault
Although this story is still fresh and developing, no one saw the arrest of Bill Cosby coming. Although as many as 40 sexual assault accusations had racked up against Cosby since last year, America’s former favorite TV dad was finally charged on Dec. 30 with the alleged assault of former Temple University employee Andrea Constand in 2004. He was spotted entering a Pennsylvania courtroom where he surrendered his passport and did not enter a plea. A judge set his bail at $1 million.
“Make no mistake, we intend to mount a vigorous defense against this unjustified charge and we expect that Mr. Cosby will be exonerated by a court of law,” Cosby’s attorneys said in a statement, according to CNN.
