It’s not like anyone had any doubts after over forty women had come out to accuse Cosby of drugging them, but then it’s nice to have incontrovertible proof.
Bill Cosby testified in a 2005 deposition that he purposefully acquired Quaaludes to give to young ladies he wanted to have seks with. The ace comedian also admitted, under oath, that he gave the sedative to at least one woman and ‘other people’.
This information surfaced after the Associated Press went to court to unseal court documents relating to another sexual assault case that Cosby settled in 2006.
From the Associated Press:
“Bill Cosby testified in 2005 that
he got Quaaludes with the intent of giving them to young women he wanted to have sex with, and he admitted giving the sedative to at least one woman and “other people,” according to documents obtained Monday by The Associated Press.
The AP had gone to court to compel the release of the documents; Cosby’s lawyers had objected on the grounds that it would embarrass their client.
The 77-year-old comedian was testifying under oath in a lawsuit filed by a former Temple University employee. He testified he gave her three half-pills of Benadryl. Cosby settled that sexual-abuse lawsuit for undisclosed terms in 2006. His lawyers in the Philadelphia case did not immediately return phone calls Monday.
Cosby has been accused by more than two dozen women of sexual misconduct, including allegations by
many that he drugged and raped them in incidents dating back more than four decades. Cosby, 77, has never been criminally charged, and most of the
accusations are barred by statutes of limitations.”
Unfortunately, as the statute of limitations has run on all the cases no criminal charges can ever be filed against Cosby. But at least those 40 poor women can know that they have been vindicated.
