Bill Cosby is desperately pleading for a judge not to unseal his deposition from a 2005 sexual assault lawsuit that many say contains the evidence that could send him to jail.
Lawyers for Tamara Green, a lawyer herself who says Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted her in the 1970s, recently filed a request with the U.S. District Court in Springfield, Massachusetts demanding the court order from the 2005 lawsuit be unsealed. According to Daily Mail, these documents detail the case of Andrea Constand, a young woman who sued Cosby for battery and assault.
If Cosby admitted to assaulting her in his deposition, this could be the evidence prosecutors need to convict him.
Constand is the former women’s basketball coach at Temple University, and she says Cosby visited her Pennsylvania home to discuss her career. He then gave her “herbal pills” to ease her anxiety, but he then “touched her breasts and vaginal area, rubbed his penis against her hand, and digitally penetrated” her.
While Constand claims he gave her three pills, Cosby claims he gave her one and a half benadryl. The comedian is reportedly desperate to not have his deposition unsealed, and his lawyers say the motion “should be denied because they have no showing of the good cause required to justify this extraordinary relief.”
In the past few months, Cosby has been hit with more than 35 allegations of sexual assault and rape. Most of them are covered by the statute of limitations, but it appears that this one could land him in big trouble.
