Arrest Warrant Issued for Bill Cosby for Alleged January 2004 Sexual Assault of Andrea Constand

Source: MSN

An arrest warrant has been issued for entertainer Bill Cosby for allegedly drugging and sexually assaultingformer Temple employee Andrea Constand at his Elkins Park, Pennsylvania mansion in January 2004, sources tell PEOPLE.

Constand was not available for comment but one of her attorneys expressed gratitude toward the prosecutor.

"Obviously we appreciate the expression of confidence in her," says Dolores Troiani of her client, Constand, 42, who is now a massage therapist in Ontario, Canada. "We'll have to see what happens. We hope justice will be done. We will cooperate fully."

Cosby has previously said what happened between him and Constand was consensual, but in new court filings last summer Constand said she was in a relationship with a woman at the time. She also called Cosby a "narcissist" who missed cues that she's gay.

2. My my....

Cosby's downward trajectory seems never ending. Of course he should (should have previously) face justice, but like so many, my feelings toward all this is just sadness all the way around.

going back to Clarence Thomas is the only way. Oddly both are Republican. Clarence clearly got away with it. So this argument about special privileged sinks to the bottom of a lake

31. low as in the jury system or just the idiot comment

don't like the jury system but at least we can see the post. and in theory reply to it.. I dislike the thought of blocking a comment unless it becomes a back and forth argument. Like okay he/she is stubborn (thats me) spank. But blocking posts because one looks foolish posting it (guilty) isn't democratic. I could argue till the end of time over the Abortion issue with my confirmation pastor and he's rather Right Wing and he knows me. Yet he's never blocked me. a Republican who doesn't block someone because the don't agree with them is rare is skewers any argument I'd have. Thus why I have issue's with this set up. But I'm just airing my 4 feathers, I'm not supporting the comment which again doesn't hold any water.

9. LOL Nice try, but Bill Clinton's supposed "history" of rape allegations is not REMOTELY similar

to Cosby's.

ONE person alleged rape against the president - FORTY have alleged it against Cosby.

I'm sure you can see the difference.

13. Someone with 40 allegaqtions of rape against them should be "hounded"

In fact, that person is LUCKY they've not been in prison for the last couple of decades

instead of making millions while covering up their crimes.

8. There's also Montco DA politics going on here

So after 10 years of sitting, a tangled web just got revealed. The outgoing GOP DA (who is about to take a seat on the PA Common Pleas court) decided to open this case up on her way out as the GOP candidate for her job (who had previously been DA before her and was the DA at the time of this assault) was being pummeled by the Democrat running against him about letting this sit... In the end, it didn't help the GOP as the Democrat won this past November.

Looks like Montgomery County is about to get back in the news again (if folks might recall the mess with Tweety's brother).

22. I expect that the new DA (Kevin Steele) will follow through

since he is very familiar with the issue (he was the #2 in that office) and he made it a campaign issue (apparently the statue of limitations was about to run out in January). But the other issue that is bubbling under the surface is the scandal surrounding the current PA State Attorney General (also a Democrat) who is currently under investigation out of that same County's office (and Steele is the lead prosecutor for that case). So Montco is the center a firestorm.

14. Cosby = A serial rapist is a person who forces a series of victims into unwanted sexual activity.

The man should be in prison if just a fraction of what has been printed and said about
him.

17. wow. May the victim receive justice, finally. I wonder if he'll request a bench trial, the jury pool

anywhere in the US would be difficult for him. He could see the inside of a prison cell
when this is over.

18. I wonder how they're going to try this case

They have to have more evidence than hearsay. The he said / she said argument is not compelling in a courtroom.

All of the other allegations from other women are just that, allegations, and they will not be admissible as evidence in his trial.

Before someone goes off on me; I absolutely believe that these women are telling the truth, i'm just interested in the methodology a prosecution will have to go through to get a conviction.

26. You're right

IF he did it, the time has come to pay the piper.

IF he DIDN'T do it, the time has come to clear his name in a court of law.

Because we can see how far we've come with him insisting "I DIDN'T DO IT."
