Judge Rules that Cosby Must Still Stand Trial

Actor and comedian Bill Cosby will still be tried on charges that he sexually assaulted a woman in his home in 2004. His lawyers tried to argue that because officials in Pennsylvania struck a deal to not prosecute him more than a decade ago, he should now be excused from standing trial. However, a judge has ruled that the old deal no longer has any legal bearing, and that the 78-year-old still faces charges. Dozens of women have recently come forward and said Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted them over the course of several decades.
