Bill Cosby ORDERED To Stand Trial In Sexual Assault Case

This could be it. 

It's been a long time coming, but Bill Cosby will finally stand trial in a sexual assault case, in a ruling made by a Pennsylvania judge.

The case at hand comes from Andrea Constand, a Temple University employee, who was sexually assaulted by the comedian after being given drugs and alcohol.

Judge Elizabeth McHugh ruled that Cosby will face all charges stemming from Andrea's case, and with that Cosby waived a formal agreement, immediately entering a not-guilty plea. A trial date has yet to be set.

In Cosby's interview with the authorities, which was read aloud in court yesterday, he admitted to only giving Andrea 1 1/2 Benadryl antihistamine and that the sexual encounter was consensual. The upcoming case comes nearly a decade after he paid Constand and unknown amount to settle a civil lawsuit.

The maximum prison sentence is 10 years, which is highly unlikely due to his age and stature,

Stay tuned.
