    Prosecutors in a Philadelphia suburb charged Bill Cosby with sexual assault Wednesday.

    It marks the first time charges have been officially brought against the beleaguered comedian, who has been accused by upwards of 60 women.

    The official charge is second-degree aggravated indecent assault. Montgomery County Assistant District Attorney Kevin R. Steele defined the act as "penetration" without the consent of his victim, former Temple University employee Andrea Constand. (During his press conference, Steele mistakenly said it was a first-degree charge.)

    If convicted, Cosby could get five to 10 years in prison, and up to a $25,000 fine.

    "Pills were provided. Wine was provided. The victim was frozen, paralyzed. A person in that condition is not able to give consent," Steele said.

    This just goes to show that we never really know a celebrity until a scandal breaks out. What he did was just terrible no amount of money or fame can make up for the abuses and trauma he caused those women. Watching the Cosby show will never be the same to me.
