Bill Cosby Sexual Assault Case: Re-Trial Date Set

Published: Thursday 6th Jul 2017 by Sam

If Bill Cosby breathed a sigh of relief after his sexual assault trial climaxed in a mistrial last month, then it may have been a touch premature.

Because, as widely expected, the prosecution against the fallen icon have secured a confirmed retrial date.

Issued today, an order by Judge Steven O’Neill read:

“A retrial in the above-captioned matter is hereby scheduled for Monday, November 6, 2017   at   9:00 a.m. in Courtroom A of the Montgomery County Courthouse, Norristown, Pennsylvania.” [Source]

If Montgomery County D.A’s office press the same charges as in the first case, the 79-year old ‘Cosby Show’ actor will face three felony charges of second-degree aggravated indecent assault. Should he be convicted on all charges, he’d be imprisoned for 10 years.

This particular case pertains to the alleged assault of Andrea Constand in 2004; however over 50 women in total have come forward to accuse Cosby of similar wrongs. Constand’s case is the only one to proceed to trial due to fact the statute of limitations haven’t run out.

Cosby’s reps offered a “no comment at this present time” response to the news of the new date.

        i couldn’t disagree more. if a person commits a crime even if they are 100 at the time they are caught they need to pay.

      @King Z It is a waste of tax payer dollars to keep retrying an old r*** case with a non-credible witness just because a celebrity is involved. If Cosby was not a celebrity a retrial would likely not occur and it certainly would not be taking priority over new criminal cases that have not been tried yet.

    She look like a man Cosby wouldn’t touch her and she could kick his ass so why are we playing games

    Waste of money and time. Whether you believe Bill Cosby is guilty or not, the prosecution are very unlikely to secure a conviction
