Bill Cosby returned to court for a hearing yesterday (Sept 6) in his sexual assault case. He has streamlined his legal team and dropped his media handler. A judge in suburban Philadelphia sets a trial date. He has so far lost his efforts to have charges thrown out.
The judge presiding over Bill Cosby’s criminal sex assault case set the trial date for no later than June 5, 2017 at a pretrial hearing on Tuesday.
He also said Cosby is blind and offered whatever special accommodations he may need.
“This case now 252 days from filing of criminal complaints,” Montgomery County Judge Steven O’Neill said in his Pennsylvania courtroom. “There is a right to a speedy trial.”
Prosecutors said Tuesday that they want 13 other women who said they were intoxicated when Bill Cosby assaulted them to testify.
