Uh oh, there’s bad news for Bill Cosby.

Lawyers for the Cos were unsuccessful in having the sexual assault charges against him dismissed. A Philadelphia area judge ruled the 78-year-old entertainer will have to go to trial.

Wednesday evening, Judge Steven O’Neill ruled that there was “no basis to grant the relief request” by the attorneys, after they had presented evidence over the last two days that former Montgomery County Dist. Atty. Bruce Castor had made a deal with the entertainer’s lawyer years ago that Cosby wouldn’t be prosecuted.

Castor testified that he had determined the criminal case against Cosby was weak and unlikely to succeed and that it would be better to have the comedian testify freely in a civil case filed by the plaintiff.

Prosecutors who succeeded Castor scoffed at the argument and wondered whether Cosby had been allowed to “buy” his way out of facing criminal charges.

Bill Cosby is facing three felony counts of aggravated indecent assault stemming from a 2004 interaction with former Temple University basketball staffer Andrea Constand.

The comedian/actor sat stoically as the judge read the decision, then talked quietly to an aide while lawyers huddled behind him. Cosby is free on $1-million bail.

    O something definitely happened, I just don’t buy that all these woman were scared to go to the Police to report this. I just don’t believe this man ran around doing all this allegedly and everybody was scared to speak because it was Cosby. A black man running around doing this in the 60’s 70’s, 80’s and 90’s ,I just don’t buy it. Consensual!

  2. It does not look good for Mr. Cosby.

    It looks like whatever agreement between Mr. C and former Montgomery County DA Castor was nothing but a gentlemen’s agreement.

    However, when it comes to dealing with White folks it is always best to get things in WRITING.
    That way ones words cannot be disputed.

    If any of Cosby’s accusers testify in the upcoming trial–he may be done for. All of these women cannot be lying!!!!!
