Cos In Trouble

I don't know how authorities in Pennsylvania were able to do it, but a warrant for Bill Cosby's arrest in the sexual assault of Andrea Constand has been issued.

I don't know what the statute of limitations is for rape/sexual assault is in that state. The alleged event occurred in 2004.

(Edit: I looked it up. The case is within the statute of limitations, which is 12 years.)

Constand is the woman who filed the civil suit against Cosby and settled for an undisclosed amount.

An arrest warrant has been issued for entertainer Bill Cosby for allegedly drugging and sexually assaultingformer Temple employee Andrea Constand at his Elkins Park, Pennsylvania mansion in January 2004, sources tell PEOPLE.

Constand was not available for comment but one of her attorneys expressed gratitude toward the prosecutor.

"Obviously we appreciate the expression of confidence in her," says Dolores Troiani of her client, Constand, 42, who is now a massage therapist in Ontario, Canada. "We'll have to see what happens. We hope justice will be done. We will cooperate fully."

Update: Cosby has been arraigned but hasn't yet entered a plea.

The judge set his bond at $1 million. He had to surrender his passport, which he did.
