Cosby is charged with three  counts of aggravated indecent assault on Constand in 2oo4, including that Cosby assaulted his victim while she was unconscious and without consent. DA Steele:

Upon examination of all of the evidence, today we are able to seek justice on behalf of Mr. Cosby’s victim.

From the complaint:

[Cosby rendered Constand] frozen, paralyzed, unable to move” by plying her with pills and wine, then penetrating her with his fingers when she was unconscious or unaware of what was happening.

Bail is set at $1 million. Cosby immediately posted $100,000. As a condition of his bail to surrender his passport. He is scheduled to appear for a preliminary hearing Jan. 14 at 9:30 a.m. That hearing will likely be held at Montgomery County Court in Norristown, according to the court documents. Cosby’s lawyer:

Make no mistake, we intend to mount a vigorous defense against this unjustified charge and we expect that Mr. Cosby will be exonerated by a court of law.
