Bill Cosby’s Wife To Testify Against Him In Sexual Assault Case
Comedian Bill Cosby is embroiled in a legal wrangle following the decision of prosecutors to charge him for a sexual assault which allegedly occurred in 2004.
Although several women have accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault, most of the cases are over a decade old and the statute of limitations have passed on most cases.
However, the case of Andrea Constand looks set to prove once and for all if the comedian is guilty of the allegations.
Andrea Constand is a former Temple University Employee who alleged that Cosby drugged her and then fondled her in 2004.
A judge ruled on December 31 that Bill Cosby’s wife, Camille will be required to testify. Although she is expected to appeal the decision, it is likely she will still be compelled to testify.
Camille Cosby had looked to sidestep testifying citing her spousal relation but having served as Cosby’s business manager for years, the judge ruled that her role as business manager is important to the case.
Cosby is charged with aggravated indecent assault, for which he could serve up to ten years in jail if found guilty.
