PHILADELPHIA (CelebrityAccess) — Court documents released on Monday revealed that comedian Bill Cosby testified during a 2005 lawsuit that he had obtained methaqualone, a type of sedative drug, with the intent of giving them to young women he wanted to have sex with. He also admitted to giving the sedative to at least one woman and "other people," according to documents obtained Monday by The Associated Press.
The Associated Press obtained the documents through legal action over objections from Cosby's attorneys that their contents would embarrass their client.
Cosby's testimony was part of a lawsuit filed against the comedian by a former Temple University employee. Cosby settled the suit in 2006, though terms of the settlement were not disclosed.
Since then, Cosby has been accused by more than two dozen women of sexual misconduct, including allegations from some of his accusers that Cosby drugged and raped them. Cosby has not been charged in connection with any of the incidents, but most of them exceed the statute of limitations, effectively preventing such criminal charges. – Staff Writers
