He should do a Viagra commercial.
The reason for the charges is simply because this happened in 2004 and the statute of limitations in PA is 12 years. So many of Cosby's alleged victims claimed they were raped in the 70s and 80s in CA where the SOL was only 10. In a case where there's a major celebrity involved, especially one that was big during the Civil Rights Movement, all these white women were simply scared of sending this goody-two-shoes black dude to jail. Same thing happened in England with Jimmy Savile: the dude was known for hosting many popular TV shows and used his celebrity to help young children. After he died, THOUSANDS of people - old and young, male and female - all accused Savile of inappropriate behavior. A woman even claimed that Savile groped her on camera on an old episode of Top of the Pops. She told some folks, but they all told her to piss off.
Bear in mind that Cosby's 78. Chances are that he'll die in jail if he's convicted and a legal expert was on my local NBC affiliate, WOOD-TV to proclaim that plea bargaining will only put him in jail, no matter what.
People would know it works.
This is the front page of today's New York Daily News and sums it up pretty well.
now that shes being forced to testify...
Bill Cosby’s furious wife Camille says she will no longer stand by him | Daily Mail Online
my guess is she did some stuff shes not so proud of so to get out in front of her testimony its time to deflect.
It's always "a source"; I want to hear it from her.

you think cosby thinks "hey if i only drugged/raped that woman next to her this whole thing could have been avoided." kinda like how normal people think they could have avoided that speeding ticket if they just left a few minutes earlier or later?
What are the odds he does jail time if found guilty? 10:1?
it a shame that the statute of limitations has run its course on so many of the other women cause from what i was reading today it seems this womans case isnt the strongest. with all the other accusations i totally believe her but if the jury does what they are supposed to they wont be allowed to consider any of that.
he should pull a joe paterno and just die. jopa knew how to get out of a tough situation.
He'll do jail time just not the full sentence. IF he's convicted.
The craziest thing for me is that he doesn't deny any of the sexual encounters, just says they were consensual. And yet his wife seems inexplicably ignorant to the whole thing. WTF?
He could have an open marriage, maybe she's got something on the side herself. Or she's in some form of denial I don't even know about yet.
I'm just going to leave this here.
WTF was that?
my guess is its some creatively edited bit of cosby when he was coming out for a tonight show appearance, starting off with that little dance before sitting down.
OK, I'll go with that. Because the sloshing sounds and the seemingly nonsensical movements were creeping me out.
