US: comedian Bill Cosby charged with sexual assault.

Comedian Bill Cosby has been charged in the
US with drugging and sexually assaulting a
women at his home 12 years ago.

It is the first criminal case to be brought
against the 78-year-old, amid allegations from
dozens of women. Cosby is accused of attacking Andrea Constand, a
former Temple University worker. “On the evening in question, Mr. Cosby urged her to
take pills that he provided to her and to drink wine,”
Kevin Steele, from the Montgomery County
Attorney’s Office, told reporters. “The effect of which rendered her unable to move
and he committed aggravated indecent assault upon
her.” Charging Cosby reverses a decision made by another
attorney in 2005. Prosecutors reopened the case as new evidence was
unsealed in the woman’s related civil case. The entertainer has previously said under oath that
he had consensual sexual contact with the woman. Cosby has repeatedly denied similar accusations
made by dozens of women. Many of the alleged incidents occurred decades ago
and the statute of limitations for prosecuting them
expired long ago. Earlier this month, Cosby sued seven of his accusers,
saying the women who said they were assaulted
were lying and had defamed his “honourable legacy
and reputation.” The actor is best known for playing Dr. Cliff
Huxtable, the family patriarch in the TV sitcom “The
Cosby Show,” which was one of America’s highest
rated television shows in the 1980s.
