After dozens of women have accused Bill Cosby of drugging and sexually assaulting them, he is still maintaining his innocence. The actor is set to go on trial for his 2004 case in June of next year and he believes that this is a personal witch hunt against him.
Here’s the story according to TMZ:
Cosby’s lawyers just released a statement calling out those who “accuse him of crimes for unwitnessed events” … and Cosby particularly directs his frustration at Gloria Allred.
The 79-year-old’s adamant Allred’s trampling on his civil rights, saying, “her campaign against Mr. Cosby builds on racial bias and prejudice that can pollute the court of public opinion. And when the media repeats her accusations — with no evidence, no trial, and no jury — we are moved backwards as a country.”
Cosby was in court Tuesday as his team tried moving the sexual assault case out of Montgomery County … arguing Cosby won’t get a fair trial there. His trial’s set to begin June 5th, 2017.
Cosby has to wait for his trial to begin,although no actual date has been set yet, the judge ruled that he must go to trial before June 2017. In the meantime, his team is working on getting the trial moved from Pennsylvania.
