Disgraced comedian/actor Bill Cosby admitted to having sexual contact with teenage girls, according to newly released excerpts from a deposition.
The Cosby Show faced deposition questioning in 2005 and 2006 a part of a civil lawsuit brought by Andrea Constand, who claimed he drugged and sexually assaulted her at his Pennsylvania home in 2004.
The case was settled out of court in 2006, but a deposition was made public in 2015, revealing Cosby had confessed to buying sedatives to give to women he wanted to sleep with.
More portions of his deposition were released by the Associated Press on Monday (23May16), which show Cosby admitting that he gave Quaaludes to 19-year-old Therese Serignese in Las Vegas in 1976 before having sex. In the transcript, he said he had given Serignese the tablets and she became "high" but says "I don't know" when asked if her state made her unable to consent to sex.
The 78-year-old also let another teenager, who he met in 2000, masturbate him with lotion. Cosby also said an agency would send him models on a weekly basis.
The new revelations were released the day before Cosby is scheduled to appear in a Pennsylvania court for a hearing to determine if his criminal sexual assault case goes to trial. He tried to delay the hearing but his attempts were rejected.
He faces a trio of felony, second-degree aggravated indecent assault charges, which were brought against him after his depositions in the Constand case were first made public.
