Bill Cosby Argues That He’s Legally Blind And Can’t Identify Rape Accusers
NOW he can’t see…
Thursday, Bill Cosby‘s lawyer mustered up the balls to argue that America’s former “favorite dad” would be unable to defend himself against sex assault accusers because he cannot see. According to CNN, the “legally blind” cards are on the table and in play.
“No 79-year-old blind man could possibly defend himself against a claim that he sexually assaulted someone he supposedly met once, half a century ago — and the Commonwealth knows it,” they say.
“Without his eyesight, Mr. Cosby cannot even determine whether he has ever even seen some of his accusers, let alone develop defenses and gather exculpatory evidence.”
Cosby’s legal team hopes that the court will “see” his blindness as a reason to dismiss the case entirely. How ironic.
The trial is set to begin on June 5 of 2017. We’re sure to hear a lot more about Billy boy’s Ray Charles-esque existence at that time.
