Arrest Warrant Issued for Bill Cosby
An arrest warrant has been issued for Bill Cosby for allegedly drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his Elkins Park, Pennsylvania mansion in January 2004.
Cosby is expected to be arraigned later this afternoon in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania.
Prosecutor say Cosby’s deposition last summer from a 2005 civil suit filed by Constand, in which Cosby admitted to giving quaaludes to women he wanted to have sex with, caused the District Attorney’s office to reopen the case.

Constand was not available for comment but one of her attorneys expressed gratitude toward the prosecutor.
“Obviously we appreciate the expression of confidence in her,” says Dolores Troiani of her client, Constand, 42, who is now a massage therapist in Ontario, Canada. “We’ll have to see what happens. We hope justice will be done. We will cooperate fully.”
The statute of limitations to charge Cosby runs out in January.
So far, more than 50 women have accused the entertainer of drugging and/or sexually assaulting them.
