Bill Cosby Charged With Sexual Assault, Posts $1 Million Bail
Got emmmm. Bill Cosby has been booked on a sexual assault charge in Philadelphia on Wednesday, in wake of dozens of women coming forward with tales of rape spanning over decades.
The 78-year-old entertainer has been arraigned on three counts of aggravated indecent assault at a brief appearance, where he did not enter a plea.
Bail was set at $1 million. After his booking, Cosby was released after posting bond.
Cosby was charged with a sexual assault on Andrea Constand, a former Temple University employee, at his suburban Philadelphia home in early 2004. If convicted, the felony charge is punishable by five to 10 years in jail and a $25,000 fine.
A preliminary hearing was set for Jan. 14.
