    American stand-up comedian and actor Bill Cosby attended a pre-trial hearing at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pennsylvania on Tuesday, where the former actor faces three felony counts of aggravated indecent assault. Judge Steven O'Neill set the trial date at June 5, 2017. Prosecutors also decided to include the testimony of 13 out of 50 other women, who accuse the star of similar assaults. The 79-year old was charged in December with drugging and molesting Andrea Constand in 2004. Constand, a former Temple University employee, alleges that Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted her in his home in Cheltenham. Constand previously settled a civil case against Cosby for an undisclosed sum in 2006. Cosby and his legal team have denied the allegations, claiming the encounter was consensual. If convicted, Cosby could face up to 10 years in prison and a $25,000 fine. Cosby maintains his innocence.
