Bill Cosby charged with indecent assault



Prosecutors in the US have charged comedian Bill Cosby with aggravated indecent assault over an alleged incident in 2004.

It is the first time Mr Cosby, 78, has been charged with any offence after months of accusations.

Andrea Constand says she was drugged then assaulted at the Philadelphia home of the former US television star.

Dozens of women have accused him of sexual assault, dating back to the 1970s, but he has denied wrongdoing.

Earlier this month he opened a lawsuit against seven of the women, accusing them of defamation.

Mr Cosby made no comment as he arrived at court to be formally charged. He did not enter a plea at the hearing where a judge set bail at $1m. more......

I don't know what to make of these women. They may be telling the truth but their behaviour is unbelievable. He calls her at 8.45pm to come to his house to discuss future career plans.Wink 8.45pm- career plans- sure.LOL I'm sure that's exactly what she thought was on his mind and nothing else, being raised in a convent and all.

They then commence a candle lit dinner, nobody else in the house, whereupon he offers her 3 mysterious blue "herbal" pills and she swallows them, washed down witha nice cognac.Confused

I know what to make of Bill Cosby ! The sheer audacity of thinking he could get away with it, and he seemingly has done, for decades. But it says something about these women, that they put the fear of not being believed, and the effect it might have on their careers, ahead of at least warning others. Any woman that went to Cosby's place then, should have been aware of the allegations.

And the old sleazebag had made his lustful interest in her firm young flesh known before the career advice dinner date. Forewarned is forearmed- apparently not.Pinch

He has already admitted his guilt with this woman. That is why this criminal action is going ahead.

He may have traded on his ability (or seeming that way to the women) to advance their careers. To some extent they were victims of their get-ahead mentality. Maybe some did get ahead and we haven't heard from them !

If people were willing to do stuff for their ''careers'', why the need to sedate? It would make it seem that he wasn't giving anyone the chance to say yes or no.

They put themselves into a vulnerable situation  because they saw a career advantage to it, I suspect. They weren't anticipating being drugged, but I'd reckon most anticipated amorous advances. Which some might well have acceded to. That choice wasn't afforded to them. He wanted a better strike rate than that might afford.

In the civil case he settled he admitted as much, as well as the drug used. It is on this basis and the fact 50 more women have come forward with identical stories has led to prosecutors deeming there is a criminal case to be answered. This case was the only one within the statute of limitations and by only a few days, so is the only one being tested. He won't answer to any others but could get about 5 years(of 10 if found guilty) for this one

Have any women came forward to complain about unwanted advances, undrugged ? That of course is not a crime, but it looks as if his "seduction" technique wasn't thought effective enough without chemical assistance. Many have used such assistance, even if it was just cheap sparkling wine ! Poor old Bill couldn't close the sale, that way, apparently.

He admitted using Quualudes (Methaqualone) a central nervous system suppressing sedative, hypnotic drug. It was used pre Rohypnol. He also admitted in his deposition he had used the drug to have sex with women in the 60's and 70's

He is a serial rapist who seems to have got away with it because of his fame.

Women do crazier things. I once lived next door to a crazy divorcee who was obviously desperate for male "company". She met a prospect who invited her to meet him at the local boat ramp at 2 a.m.  Confused She went there. Confused He didn't turn up. Confused She wasn't too embarrassed to tell the story. Fair dinkum.

I saw part of a doco where the accusers speak about their "Cosby experience". It seems that many of them performed oral sex on him. I am struggling to understand how that could be, if they were comatose or effectively heavily sedated, and unwilling.

Their stories were pretty consistent, the bloke is deeply sleazy, but I would not think they would be totally representative of those that were invited into the parlour. The casting couch is part of show-business, and successful graduates are probably not going to complain.

I notice the broad that was Cosby's TV wife in his hugely successful show, is not showing any solidarity with the complainants. I wonder about that.

I imagine others might feel the same, but if you've ever laughed at that show when it was on, and it was on prime time for a long time, then you kinda feel conned and a bit sickened for enjoying that show now..

f FS..let us hope that they don't find out Hogan, Gilligan and Fonzie were all sex offenders down the line...https://static.gearslutz.com/board/images/smilies/facepalm.gif

Hey Dad, TV is full of perverts ! Talking about Hogan (not Paul), the bloke that played the part of Hogan in the Hogan's Heroes show was a pornographer.
 
  • The son of Bob Crane, who starred as a prisoner of war during World War II on the hit show, rips the lid off his father's double life in new book
  • Crane's dressing room was porn central and he engaged in threesomes and autoerotic behavior he often captured on video
  • He left his wife and three children to marry his blonde bombshell co-star
  • Son Robert was 16 years old when his father first introduced him to his many fetishes 
  • Crane told his son that he was planning to end his relationship with a friend police believed was bisexual 
  • Robert believed the man, who was arrested but not convicted was 'perhaps in love with my dad and reacted to this information like a spurned lover'

    Never been a Cosby fan. He was good in I Spy which was an entertaining show but that was before he fully developed that annoying vocal shtick and the preachiness first seen in Fat Albert, which was awful.
