Bill Cosby one of the well-known and once respected American comedians in the world now finds himself in a quagmire. He was recently charged with crimes of sexual violence in the commonwealth of Pennsylvania. His bail was set very high at $1 million. Even with this, Cosby still insists not guilty.
Cosby was charged with aggravated indecent assault. Unlike many other sexual assaults, this one only requires minimal penetration of the genitals or the anus by any part of the defendant’s body which also includes the finger. It also requires that the complainant not be unconscious or there be no consent. The major task of the commonwealth is to prove against any doubt, that the complainant was not conscious or did not consent. According to the complainant in this case the defendant drugged her before committing the felony.
Unlike other sexual assault cases, this one will be wholly based on testimonial and not on physical evidence. This is however not a disadvantage to the prosecutors case.
