Bill Cosby Heckled Outside Of Court Before Pre-Trial Hearing

March 05, 2018 - 1:20 pm

PHILADELPHIA (1010 WINS) -- Bill Cosby returned to court in Philadelphia on Monday, for a pre-trial hearing in his upcoming sex assault re-trial.

Cosby was greeted by a heckler on his way into court where a judge will hear arguments over the next two days, before a re-trial next month.

Prosecutors want to call more than a dozen Cosby accusers as witnesses to show that a pattern of sexual assault led to his encounter with Andrea Constand.

The defense has said some of the allegations from other women are unsubstantiated.

The 80-year-old comedian has been accused of giving Constand, a former Temple University employee, drugs and then sexually assaulting her in 2004.

Defense attorneys argued that the sexual contact was part of a consenting relationship between the two.
