Bill Cosby was charged Wednesday with felony assault over an encounter with a woman 12 years ago.
“We are here to announce today charges that have just been filed against William Henry Cosby. These charges stem from a sexual assault that took place on an evening in early 2004 at Mr. Cosby’s home…” Montgomery County First Assistant District Attorney Kevin Steele said in a press conference. “Mr. Cosby is charged with aggravated indecent assault.”
Aggravated indecent assault is punishable by up to 10 years behind bars.
Cosby is expected to be arraigned on the charge this afternoon in Elkins Park, Pa.
So there you have it.
