Bill Cosby: Cringe-worthy new details emerge
On Wednesday, Bill Cosby was charged with aggravated indecent assault, a first-degree felony.
The charge relates to a sexual assault alleged to have happened more than a decade ago. The 78-year-old comedian previously admitted under oath that he had sexual contact with the woman, as part of the lawsuit she filed claiming that Cosby drugged her and forced himself on her at his home near Philadelphia in 2004.
Here is Cosby’s version of events, according to the affidavit:
Constand’s mother reportedly noticed a difference in her daughter the next time she returned home. Constand reportedly seemed isolated and suffered from nightmares. Eventually, in January 2005, Constand told her mother about the alleged assault. Her family then reported the incident to police in Canada, where her parents lived at the time.
Cosby eventually spoke to Constand’s mother on the phone and admitted to the sexual contact, according to the affidavit. He reportedly offered to cover any therapy expenses. Cosby reportedly called Constand’s mother again the next day and “expressed interest in assisting the victim financially with any educational goals.”
