A woman charged the disgraced 80-year-old actor and comedian, Bill Cosby, when he arrived at the courthouse for his sexual assault trial.
On April 9, 2018, Cosby arrived at the courthouse only to be met with an angry mob of protestors. The woman who charged at him was taken into custody.
As reported by Inquisitr, the woman had the words 'Cosby,' and 'rapist' painted on her body and jumped over a barricade to reach him.
She was cuffed and taken away before she reached him and Cosby didn't sustain any injuries. He was then led to the courthouse.
Cosby, most famously known for his role of Dr. Huxtable, was accused of sexually molesting Andrea Constand in 2004. Witnesses testified at the trail as well.
The court heard that Cosby allegedly drugged Constand at his home in Philadelphia. Cosby's legal team tried to discredit Constand and tried to paint her as a 'greedy liar.'
The judge allowed for five other women to testify about Cosby's 'pattern of predatory behavior.' Only one accusers testified in the first trial, but more will follow.
The judge also allowed for the defense to call an accuser to the stand, who claims that Constand 'boasted about falsely accusing' Cosby for financial benefit.
If found guilty, Cosby could spend up to 10 years in prison. He is facing three charges, and each charge carries a ten-year sentence, but they could be served consecutively.
He denies any wrongdoing and maintains that 'the sexual contact' with Constand was consensual.
"I don't talk about it. I have been in this business 52 years, and I've never seen anything like this. Reality is a situation, and I can't speak."
