Bill Cosby’s mug shot has been released following the comedian’s formal arraignment on one charge of aggravated indecent assault on Wednesday.
The 78-year-old actor was accused of drugging and violating former Temple University employee Andrea Constand at his mansion in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania more than a decade ago.
Cosby’s bail was set at $1 million with additional conditions of surrendering his passport and having no contact with the alleged victim. He posted $100,000 (10 percent of the bail, as required) and was released.
This is the first criminal charge brought against Cosby after more than 50 women have accused him of drugging and/or sexually assaulting them. Despite the accusations, he has maintained his innocence and has denied all wrongdoing. He has however admitted to drugging women in the past.
Seeing the mugshot of Bill Cosby and the footage of him being led to court are certainly a far cry of how we remember him in the Cosby Show. The family man who became a fixture in homes around the world as the fun loving and earnest Dr. Huxtable, has certainly had a huge fall from grace.
We hope justice will prevail through this trial.
Bill Cosby has broken his silence for the first time since being arrested and charged with sexual assault.
“Friends and fans, Thank You,” a tweet posted to Cosby’s verified account read on Thursday night.
