Cosby coming out of court

The judge hearing the s*uxual assault case against Bill Cosby has ruled that the comedian would face charges at trial, despite a strong attempt by his team to have the case thrown out of court.

As we reported earlier, the former District Attorney who investigated Constand’s allegations in 2005, and decided that Cosby would not be prosecuted- Bruce Castor, testified to the existence of the deal in court. This deal was reached in exchange for Cosby testifying in a deposition in which he admitted to buying drugs to give to women.

Despite Castor’s testimony, the judge ruled that the case should go forward, dismissing the motion submitted by the comedian’s lawyers. The new DA prosecuting the case argued that Castor had no authority to make such a deal which would be binding on his successors, and the judge agreed.

The case would resume next month, although Cosby’s lawyers have indicated they would appeal the decision, determined to get the case thrown out before it reaches trial.

Cosby is standing trial for s*xually assaulting Andrea Constand in 2004. The comedian has faced many more allegations of such nature, but the statute of limitations has run on most of them, protecting him from prosecution.
