Bill Cosby will have to face trial in his felony assault case. A Pennsylvania judge ruled today that there was enough evidence for the 78-year-old comedian to be tried on three counts of felony indecent assault from a 2004 case involving Andrea Constand. She was the first of over 50 women who have accused him of sexual assault.
CNN reports that Cosby’s lawyer Brian McMonagle argued: “The evidence presented today was evidence of nothing. They had 12 years to bring an accuser to confront Mr. Cosby. They chose not to. There was no evidence of a crime here. And the inconsistencies that plagued this investigation from the beginning continue to plague it now. This case should end immediately.”
No date has been announced for the trial. If convicted Cosby face 30 years in prison.
