It has been revealed that Bill Cosby admitted 10 years ago to giving women the drug quaaludes, with the intent to sedate them for sexual purposes.
The documents, just unsealed from a judge, stems from a civil complaint filed by former Temple University employee Andrea Constand whom first met Cosby in November of 2012. 13 other women are mentioned in Constand’s complaint as Jane Does who experienced similar encounters.
At the time Constand was the only woman to press charges against the famous comedian.
The documents, obtained by the Associated Press, reveal that Cosby admitted under oath to accusations that have been making headlines in recent months.
“When you got the quaaludes, was it in your mind that you were going to use these quaaludes for young women that you wanted to have sex with?” Constand’s lawyer, Dolores M. Troian asked.
“Yes,” Cosby answered.
In a November 2014 interview with The Daily Mail, the D.A in Constand’s case admitted that Cosby was “probably guilty”.
“I wanted to arrest Bill Cosby because I thought he was probably guilty, but being able to prove anything beyond a reasonable doubt and thinking he’s probably guilty are two different things,” said Bruce Castor, the DA of Montgomery County at the time that Andrea Constand claimed Cosby inappropriately touched her after giving her three blue pills in his Cheltenham, Pennsylvania home.
Cosby’s legal team has long tried to conceal the documents of the 2005 case, citing embarrassment for their client.
“It would be terribly embarrassing for this material to come out,” said Cosby’s lawyer George M. Gowen III earlier this summer.
Cosby has not yet released an official statement on the latest revelation in his ongoing sexual assault allegations. The difference this time, Cosby is now the one whose damming statements raise concerns over his character.
