Pennsylvania prosecutors say that comedian Bill Cosby has been criminally charged in connection with an incident in 2004, where a woman was allegedly drugged and sexually assaulted at his Philadelphia-area mansion. Gavino Garay reports.

One-time all-American dad Bill Cosby was arraigned Wednesday on a charge of aggravated indecent assault before a magistrate in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania, writes USA Today.

He will remain free on $1 million bail pending trial, but turned over his passport to the court during a brief appearance. He was out the door within ten minutes. He will next appear in court on Jan. 14.

Lawyer Gloria Allred, who represents 29 of Cosby’s accusers, praised the prosecutor’s decision to bring the charge against Cosby in a live interview carried by CNN.

“I’m glad that this day has come,” she said. “He will have his day in court and we will see what happens.”

Days before the statute of limitations is set to run out, an arrest warrant has been issued for Bill Cosby on a charge of drugging and sexually assaulting former Temple employee Andrea Constand in 2004, according to PEOPLE magazine.

The statute of limitations to charge the entertainer in the case expires in January, notes the report. The incident reportedly occurred at his Elkins Park, Pennsylvania mansion in January 2004, sources tell the magazine.

Via PEOPLE:

Constand was not available for comment but one of her attorneys expressed gratitude toward the prosecutor.

“Obviously we appreciate the expression of confidence in her,” says Dolores Troiani of her client, Constand, 42, who is now a massage therapist in Ontario, Canada. “We’ll have to see what happens. We hope justice will be done. We will cooperate fully.”

Cosby has previously said what happened between him and Constand was consensual, but in new court filings last summer Constand said she was in a relationship with a woman at the time. She also called Cosby a “narcissist” who missed cues that she’s gay.

An estimated 50 women have accused the entertainer of drugging and/or sexually assaulting them. Cosby has adamantly denied all of the allegations.
