Lawyer for accusers says many clients keen to testify against Bill Cosby

Comedian Bill Cosby was charged on Wednesday (December 30) with sexually assaulting a woman in 2004 after plying her with drugs and alcohol, marking the only criminal case against a once-beloved performer whose father-figure persona was damaged by dozens of misconduct accusations. Attorney Gloria Allred, who represents 29 women in civil suits against Cosby, said that seeing the actor charged on Wednesday was the "best Christmas present" ever for her clients.
