喜剧明星Bill cosby遭起诉 曾性侵50名以上女性

【Related News】

中国网娱乐12月31日讯据台湾媒体报道,美国78岁黑人男星“天才老爹”比尔-科斯比(Bill Cosby)曾遭数十名女子指控遭他下药后性侵,却始终逍遥法外,今天宾州蒙哥马利郡检察官终于针对一名天普大学前女性雇员指控2004年在他住家被他性侵,对他提起公诉。

媒体指出,先前检察官在2005年受理同案件后决定不起诉,当时科斯比表示双方是在情投意合的情况下发生性关系,但今年夏天检察官又重启调查。

科斯比被控犯下首宗性侵案后50多年,有46名女子声称是受害者,其中有35人曾在7月于《纽约客》杂志挺身而出,揭露自己的经历。同时《美联社》也取得他10年前针对天普大学前女雇员案件的证词,他亲口承认拿助眠药“安眠酮”对女性下药,再发生性关系。事后他与该女子和解。

媒体并指出,由于多起性侵案发生在数十年前,大部分都已超过追溯期,但是宾州法律针对性犯罪有12年的追溯期,眼看着明年1月期限即将来临,检察官才会赶在年底出招。

The comedian was in court today for a brief arraignment, and used a wire transfer to pay his $1 million bail.

Speaking to the Associated Press after the hearing ended, Cosby's attorney Monique Pressley said she was not surprised by the Montgomery County district attorney's decision to pursue charges.

Cosby​ himself had declined to make any comment to the throng of press gathered outside the Pennsylvania court hearing earlier in the day.

Earlier today (December 30), Cosby was charged with aggravated indecent assault on Andrea Constand over a decade ago​ in Pennsylvania.

Prosecutors confirmed that new evidence came to light in July of this year and the case was reopened. The charges were filed just before the statute of limitations in the case was due to expire.

More than 50 women have accused the comedian of sexual impropriety in a time period between 1965 to 2008.

Earlier this month, the comedian filed a defamation lawsuit against seven women who have accused him of sexual offences.

In the wake of reports about his alleged behaviour, more than a dozen colleges including Brown University, Fordham University and Marquette University have revoked honorary degrees awarded to the actor.

Cosby has denied any and all allegations of sexual misconduct through his attorneys.
