Cosby accuser Andrea Constand, seen in court

In the case, Andrea Constand, the former director of operations for Temple University's women's basketball team, accused Cosby of sexually assaulting her in his home in January 2004. Cosby denied the charges.

Dozens of women have accused Bill Cosby of sexual impropriety, bringing numerous civil cases against the legendary comedian. Constand's was the only case that was within the statute of limitations, and is so far the only criminal case filed against him.
