With another college, George Washington University, stripping Bill Cosby of his honorary degree, Cosby’s fall from grace has been slow and painful. Cosby, who is currently out on $1 million bail, is fighting an assault case stemming from an incident that occurred with Andrea Constand in 2004. Recently, Cosby’s attorney, Monique Pressley, has filed a motion to dismiss all charges.
According to Pressley, these assault charges against Cosby violate a prior 2006 settlement between Cosby and Constand, where the ladder initially sued Cosby. Cosby agreed to a “non-prosecution” agreement in order to testify in Constand’s 2006 litigation, and that is where the depositions of him admitting to giving Qualudes to women comes from.
Pressley is accusing the newly elected District Attorney, Kevin Steele of violating the agreement to fulfill campaign promises. In a statement she says:
Now, to fulfill campaign promises, the newly-elected District Attorney has repudiated the agreement and has based these criminal charges on the very testimony Mr. Cosby gave in reliance on the Commonwealth’s non-prosecution agreement.
Well, one things for sure, the former Huxtable character definitely has a winning lawyer on his side. Do you think the charges will be dismissed?
