Opening Statements in Cosby Trial Set
The opening statements have been set in the upcoming Bill Cosby trial. Accusers are to make the case that “America’s Dad” was living a double life, and was actually one of Hollywood’s biggest predators, while Cosby’s lawyer is set to attack Andrea Constand, his first accuser, as a liar, and the subsequent women who have testified, as “bandwagon” accusers. Cosby’s first trial, which occurred last spring, ended with the jurors unable to make a unanimous decision in the case. Cosby, who is now 80 years old, faces three counts of aggravated indecent assault. Each count faces up to 10 years in prison.
