Bill Cosby arraigned on sex-assault charge, will remain free on $1 Million bail

Bill Cosby has been arraigned on a sex assault charge in Pennsylvania and will remain free on $1 million bail pending trial.

Cosby will be fingerprinted at a police station near the Elkins Park courtroom. He did not have to enter a plea, and his next court hearing is Jan. 14.
Prosecutors say the comedian urged a former Temple University employee to take pills and drink wine at his home in 2004. Kevin Steele, Montgomery County’s first assistant district attorney, says that left the woman, Andrea Constand, paralyzed and unable to respond to Cosby’s sexual advances — and that Cosby committed aggravated indecent assault.

Cosby shook his head as reporters shouted questions at him before the hearing. The 78-year-old comedian said under oath that he had consensual sexual contact with the woman.
