Pennsylvania officials can prosecute Cosby for sex assault: judge
NORRISTOWN, Pa. (Reuters) - Pennsylvania prosecutors can put disgraced comedian Bill Cosby on trial for charges of sexually assaulting a woman more than a decade ago, Common Pleas Court Judge Steven O'Neill ruled on Wednesday.
Attorneys for Cosby, 78, had argued that the entertainer could not be prosecuted due to an agreement reached with a former Montgomery County district attorney.
