Bill Cosby's spokesman is calling for increased security after a topless protester hopped a barricade and got close to the 80-year-old comedian as he walked into a suburban Philadelphia courthouse for his sexual assault retrial.
A judge barred mention of the settlement or the civil lawsuit during the first criminal trial but agreed the jury could hear about it this time around.
"The main goal was to make Cosby uncomfortable because that is exactly what he has been doing for decades to women", Rochelle said after being charged, WHYY reported. Constand's lawyer has said the co-worker is lying.
Nicolle Rochelle, 39, was arrested and charged "with Disorderly Conduct after she entered a restricted space on the grounds of the Montgomery County Courthouse at 8:35 a.m., when the defendant, William H. Cosby Jr., was arriving for court docket", the Montgomery County District Legal professional's Workplace stated in a press launch on Monday.
Ms Constand is the only woman whose complaint has resulted in criminal charges against the performer once dubbed "America's Dad".
Constand is the only one of Cosby's accusers whose claims are not too old to prosecute. The case was settled confidentially in 2006 with a financial payment made by Cosby to Constand.
"You never know who's going to want to make a name for themselves", he said. She described Cosby as "somebody I trusted".
