Bill Cosby arraigned on sexual assault charges — bail set at $1 million
Comedian Bill Cosby was arraigned in Pennsylvania on Wednesday on charges related to an alleged sexual assault against a woman at his home outside Philadelphia in 2004, and a judge set bail at $1 million.
Cosby made a brief appearance before the judge in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania, but he entered no plea during the hearing. The entertainer, seen in television footage dressed in a heavy gray sweater, carrying a cane, and escorted by law enforcement officers, made no public statement when he entered or left the courtroom.
Earlier Wednesday, Montgomery County prosecutors announced the first criminal charge ever filed against the entertainer related to any of the dozens of accusations of sexual misconduct against him, some of which date back for decades.
