13 years later, a trial that’ll make history with comedian Bill Cosby is set to begin in just a few hours. Although a former district attorney in Montgomery County chose not to pursue charges in 2005, current prosecutors reopened the investigation last year after many other women came forward with similar accusations against Mr. Cosby.

The physical evidence is weak, leaving nothing much but hearsay and a few excerpts from Cosby’s deposition from 2005.

Cosby faces three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault from a 2004 case involving Andrea Constand, an employee at his alma mater, Temple University. She was the first of more than 50 women who have accused Cosby of sexual misconduct.
“Time is the enemy for any criminal case,” said Jordan Friter, an attorney in Pennsylvania. “Most people couldn’t tell you what they had for dinner last night, let alone what happened 13 years ago.”
YC will be at the Montgomery County Court of Common Pleas on assignment for the Bill Cosby Trial.
