Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele on Tuesday filed a motion asking a Pennsylvania judge to allow 13 other alleged victims of Bill Cosby to testify at his criminal trial.
The motion was filed just before a pretrial conference got underway. Montgomery County Judge Steven O’Neill said he would schedule a separate hearing on that issue.
“Since the victim disclosed this drug-facilitated assault to the police, other women, suffering nearly identical trauma at the hands of the defendant came forward,” the prosecution’s motion said.
“During the course of this case, the Commonwealth investigated nearly 50 women allegedly victimized by defendant,” the motion states. “What became clear was that the defendant has engaged, over the course of his lifetime, in a pattern of serial sexual abuse.”
The 68-page motion then detailed the account of each of the 13 women prosecutors chose to include. CLICK FOR MORE
