Cosby hearing adjourns, no decision on accusers
NORRISTOWN, Pa. - A Pennsylvania judge says he'll take some time before deciding whether to allow more than a dozen women who accuse Bill Cosby of sexually assaulting them to testify at his trial next year.
Montgomery County Judge Steven O'Neill heard arguments Wednesday from Cosby's lawyers, who say the 79-year-old comedian's accusers should be barred from taking the witness stand.
Cosby is charged with sexually assaulting a woman at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004. Prosecutors want to call 13 other accusers to show that Cosby had a history of drugging and molesting women.
Defense lawyer Brian McMonagle says prosecutors are dredging up assault allegations dating to the 1960s to try to breathe life into a weak case.
The two-day hearing has adjourned.
