Judge finds enough evidence for Cosby to go to trial on sex assault

Actor and comedian Bill Cosby

A Pennsylvania judge ordered Bill Cosby to stand trial for sexual assault, ruling on Tuesday that there was enough evidence for the entertainer to be criminally tried on charges that he attacked a woman in 2004 after giving her drugs.

The ruling came after a preliminary hearing that Cosby, 78, attended in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.

Witnesses testified about statements that Cosby and his accuser, Andrea Constand, gave to police in 2005 about the incident.

Cosby said “thank you” to the judge after she announced her decision.
