Bill Cosby ordered to stand trail on felony sex assault charges

Associated Press
Comedian Bill Cosby was ordered to stand trial on sexual assault charges Tuesday after a hearing that hinged on a decade-old police report in which a woman said the comedian gave her three blue pills that put her in a stupor, unable to stop his advances.
District Judge Elizabeth McHugh ruled that prosecutors had sufficient evidence to bring Cosby to trial and she set his arraignment for July 20, at which time the entertainer will enter a plea and a trial date will be set.
Cosby, 78, could get 10 years in prison if convicted.
“Mr. Cosby, good luck to you, sir,” the judge said.
“Thank you,” he replied.
