The Details Behind Cosby’s Case
“The Cosby Show” star was charged in late 2015 after being arrested just days before the 12 year statue of limitations was up. The original incident occurred in 2004. Cosby’s alleged victim was Andrea Constand, a Temple University employee who accused him of the crimes. She says Cosby drugged and molested her at his property.
“Cosby has served more than two years of a three- to 10-year sentence at a state prison near Philadelphia. He had vowed to serve all 10 years rather than acknowledge any remorse over the 2004 encounter with accuser Andrea Constand.”
