Cosby's lawyers ask judge to toss charges

NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) - Bill Cosby's lawyers want his sexual assault case thrown out, arguing that telephone records, travel itineraries and other evidence show the alleged incident couldn't have happened when prosecutors say it did.

They're disputing accuser Andrea Constand's testimony at Cosby's first trial last year that the 80-year-old entertainer drugged and molested her at his suburban Philadelphia home in January 2004.

Cosby's lawyers say the evidence they've found shows he wasn't even in Pennsylvania during that time.

Cosby was arrested on Dec. 30, 2015, meaning any encounter prior to Dec. 30, 2003 would've been outside the 12-year statute of limitations.

A jury deadlocked on sexual assault charges last year, setting the stage for a retrial.
