Bill Cosby's Lawyer Releases Statement After Arraignment

Bill Cosby‘s attorney is speaking out after he plead not guilty to sexual assault charges in the 2004 Andrea Constand case.

The 78-year-old actor and comedian was released on $1 million in bail after being arraigned on Wednesday (December 30) in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania.

“The charge by the Montgomery County District Attorney’s office came as no surprise,” lawyer Monique Pressley told Us Weekly. “Filed 12 years after the alleged incident and coming on the heels of a hotly contested election for this county’s DA during which this case was made the focal point. Make no mistake, we intend to mount a vigorous defense against this unjustified charge and we expect that Mr. Cosby will be exonerated by a court of law.”
