Bill Cosby’s attorneys believe the actor can no longer defend himself against the women accusing him of sexual abuse because he’s now “legally blind” and his memory has “substantially declined.” Cosby has pleaded not guilty to the criminal charges filed against him by the Montgomery County district attorney. He is facing three counts of aggravated indecent assault for allegedly drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand, a former Temple University employee, at his Elkins Park mansion in January 2004.
The actor has denied similar allegations of sexual misconduct from at least 46 women, who claim they have been abused by Cosby as far back as the 1970s.
