Bill Cosby’s wife to testify during defamation case against hubby

Former Temple University employee Andrea Constand says the iconic comedian drugged and assaulted her more than 11 years ago. Cosby allegedly sexually assaulted Constand and drugged her. He was not charged at the time, but later settled a lawsuit filed by Constand. “We need to start blaming Bill Cosby himself for his reprehensible and disgusting actions”.

Since the number of accusations against the legendary comedian has grown, Camille Cosby continuously. Lark Voorhies, best known for playing Lisa Turtle on Saved by the Bell, is the latest to offer her views-and she’s definitely not a fan.

“He is a kind man… and a wonderful husband, father and friend”.

“The man you admired, Dr. Huxtable, was a scripted, imaginary character”.

As reported by Page Six, when Bill was forced to appear at the Cheltenham Police Station after an arrest warrant was issued for Cosby, Camille was not present with Bill on December 30, 2015. Camille will be deposed by lawyers for the accusers on Wednesday. Obviously the big news will most likely come Wednesday during Camille’s testimony. But as The Post reported Sunday, she’s grown tired of the embarrassment her husband has caused her and now wants to steer completely clear of Bill, sources said.

Cosby, who exemplified the model family man in his hit television series The Cosby Show, was charged with aggravated indecent assault, which carries a maximum penalty of five to 10 years in jail.

A federal magistrate judge in MA rejected arguments by Cosby’s wife, who also has been his business manager, that the deposition would represent an “undue burden”.

In Massachusetts, marital disqualification law prevents spouses from testifying on private conversations with their partner during their marriage, but certain criteria must be fulfilled for this to apply. It’s the first criminal case brought against Cosby out of the torrent of allegations that destroyed his good-guy image as America’s Dad.

Cosby is free on $1 million bail, and his lawyer has said the entertainer is not guilty and will not consider a plea bargain. However, he received a barrage of abuse as Twitter users branded him a “monster” and accused him of “horrendous crimes against women”.
