Arrest Warrant Issued for Bill Cosby for Aggravated Indecent Assault
TMZ is reporting that Bill Cosby has been charged with the sexual assault of Andrea Constand, technically called aggravated indecent assault.
Constand, a former Temple University employee, claims that Cosby drugged and assaulted her while she was working as the operations manager for the women's basketball team in 2004.
The lack of evidence resulted in the case's rejection. However, Constand sued Cosby in 2005 and settled the case after a year.
After over 50 women came forward with accusations similar to Constand's, District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman reopened the investigation with new evidence.
Accusations state that Cosby gave Constand pills and wine that resulted in the inability to consent to sexual contact. If convicted, Cosby faces up to 10 years in prison.
