Bill Cosby, a famous comedian and TV star for decades, was charged with felony indecent assault.
The allegations in this case were made by Andrea Costand. In a 2005 filing, Costand stated that the previous year Cosby drugged and assaulted her. At the time, Costand was working for the Temple University basketball team. Cosby is a well-known Temple alum.
After the renewed uproar, Montgomery County DA Risa Vetri Ferman reopened the case which was rejected a decade ago. Additionally, the statute of limitations in this instance is twelve years so prosecutors were racing against the clock.
Cosby is facing a maximum of five to ten years in jail as well as a $25,000 fine.
