07 Jul 2015 10:10
Comedian Bill Cosby testified in 2005 that he had obtained Quaaludes with the intent of giving the sedatives to young women in order to have sex with them, according to court documents unsealed yesterday.
-
Mr Cosby made the admission during testimony in a civil case brought by a former Temple University employee, Andrea Constand.
-
She alleged Mr Cosby tricked her into taking drugs before he sexually assaulted her.
-
The case was settled for an undisclosed sum in 2006 but the documents in the case were unsealed yesterday after the Associated Press went to court.
-
Mr Cosby's lawyers had argued that the documents would cause severe embarrassment to the comedian-actor.
-
Mr Cosby is best known for playing Dr Cliff Huxtable on the hit TV comedy series "The Cosby Show" in the 1980s and 1990s.
-
A representative for Mr Cosby did not immediately respond to requests for comment yesterday.
-
More than 40 women have come forward in the past year alleging Mr Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted them in incidents dating back decades.
-
His attorneys have consistently denied the allegations.
-
Mr Cosby has never been criminally charged and most of the allegations exceed the statute of limitations.
