Bill Cosby Set To Face Trail For Sexual Assault Charges
The time has come. After years of rumors, murmurs and accusations, a Pennsylvania judge has decided that Bill Cosby will have to sit in court and answer for the sexual assault charges.
Aggravated sexual-assault charges against Bill Cosby will go to trial this summer, a judge ruled Tuesday.
“Based on the evidence, I am going to hold you on charges,” Judge Elizabeth McHugh ruled.
Cosby responded later with a statement criticizing prosecutors and his accuser, and vowing he would prevail at trial.
“Mr. Cosby is not guilty of any crime and not one single fact presented by (prosecutors) rebuts this truth,” said the statement issued by Brian McMonagle, Cosby’s attorney at Tuesday’s preliminary hearing here. “Though the Court decided the government reached the low threshold required for today’s preliminary hearing, we have no doubt this case ultimately will be resolved in Mr. Cosby’s favor.”
The trial will take place in Pennsylvania’s Court of Common Pleas, in Montgomery County outside Philadelphia. The judge set July 20 for a formal arraignment but Cosby later waived that. The trial will start at a later date.
The judge wished Cosby good luck before adjourning.
LMAO @ the judge wishing The Cos’ good luck.
