More than two dozen women have accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault, but still, millions of fans support the comedy legend and believe his claims that he is innocent of any misconduct.
That may change now that court documents from a 2005 civil case have revealed that Cosby admitted to obtaining Quaaludes with the the intention of using them to drug women and sexually abuse them.
Testifying under oath in a lawsuit filed by Temple University employee Andrea Constand, Cosby made the shocking admission while being cross-examined by Constand's attorney.
"When you got the Quaaludes, was it in your mind that you were going to use these Quaaludes for young women that you wanted to have sex with?" lawyer Dolores M. Troiani asked.
"Yes," Cosby answered.
He then admitted to giving Constand three half-pills of Benadryl. He also confessed to giving Quaaludes to one woman and unspecified "other people"
Constand had accused Cosby of sexually assaulting her at his home in 2005. The case was eventually settled under confidential terms, and Cosby's lawyers successfully petitioned to have the court documents sealed.
Today, the AP won its long legal battle to have the documents released.
Despite the many accusations against him, no criminal charges have been filed against Cosby, as the statute of limitations has expired in each case.
An LAPD investigation into the claims against Cosby has thus far failed to uncover any criminal activity recent that the comedian could be charged for it.
