Bill Cosby Arrives to Preliminary Court Hearing After Admitting to Having Sexual Contact with Teens
A new deposition reveals more disturbing details.
According to TMZ, Bill Cosby had sexual relations with two teenage girls, one of which his agent paid off in order to keep their affair a secret from his wife. These revelations come from transcripts from Cosby’s civil case with Andrea Constand. Cosby said that an agency would send him “five or six” models every week to the studio while filming one of his sitcoms, allegedly, to give them a “very, very good meal.” After denying that he served Constand liquor, her lawyer questioned whether he massaged her on his couch.
“I need clarification on time,” he responded.
“She’s 17 and I believe throughout the time she knows you she becomes 18 or 19,” the attorney continued. “On a later occasion you had her masturbate you with lotion. Did that ever happen?”
Cosby replied, “Yes.”
He also admitted to having sexual relations with Therese Serignese, who was 19 at the time of their affair. He gave her money to ensure confidentiality from his wife as well.
Cosby arrived at his preliminary hearing this morning (May 24, 2016) in Pennsylvania where he faces three counts of felony indecent assault from the 2004 case involving Contand. The judge will decide at the end of his hearing whether the prosecution has provided enough evidence to continue with a criminal trial. If convicted, he can face up to 10 years in prison.
UPDATE: Cosby has been ordered to stand trial in the sexual assault case. Cosby faces three counts of felony indecent assault from the 2014 case. She was the first of more than 50 women who have accused the comedian of sexual misconduct. If convicted, Cosby faces up to 10 years in prison.
