“Prosecutors accused him of rendering former Temple University employee Andrea Constand unable to resist by plying her with pills and wine, then penetrating her digitally without her consent, when she was unconscious or unaware of what was happening,” the AP reported.
The stunning legal action comes after dozens of women lodged allegations against Cosby, beloved for his avuncular role as the wise Dr. Huxtable on the 1980s hit “The Cosby Show.” Numerous organizations including Atlanta’s Spelman College have moved to distance themselves from Cosby as the story has unfolded.
