Bill Cosby to go on trial for sexual assault
A Pennsylvania judge has ruled that there is enough evidence for Bill Cosby to be criminally tried.
NORRISTOWN, PA - A Pennsylvania judge ordered Bill Cosby to stand trial for sexual assault, ruling on Tuesday that there was enough evidence for the entertainer to be criminally tried on charges that he attacked a woman in 2004 after giving her drugs.
The ruling came after a preliminary hearing that Cosby, 78, attended in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.
Witnesses testified about statements that Cosby and his accuser, Andrea Constand, gave to police in 2005 about the incident.
He faces three counts of felony indecent assault relating to that incident.
Constand is one of numerous women who've made allegations of sexual assault against the comedian in recent months.
Lawyer Gloria Allred who represents at least 30 of the women claiming to be victims of Cosby, says even though the trial is related to Constand's alleged assault, it's possible some of the other accusers may be called in to testify.
"Accusers could be called to testify at trial. Whether they will be called, that is subpoenaed to testify at trial, that is a decision that will be made by law enforcement district attorney.
Cosby said "thank you" to the judge after she announced her decision.
