A Pennsylvania judge has ruled on Tuesday, May 24, that Bill Cosby will stand trial on sexual assault charges stemming from a 2004 claim.
Andrea Constand, a former Temple University employee claimed in 2004 that the actor/comedian drugged and violated sexually assaulted her. In a 2005 statement to police, Constand claims Cosby invited her to his home in 2004, Cosby allegedly told her to wear comfortable clothes and gave her two pills to “take the edge off.”
NBC reports that Cosby faces three counts of felony indecent assault and 10 years in prison if convicted. He was charged and released on $1 million bail in December 2015, more than 10 years after he and Constand reportedly settled a civil lawsuit for an undisclosed sum.
Cosby’s next court date is July 20.
