Cosby Accusers’ Testimony Sought

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Prosecutors in the sexual assault case against Bill Cosby are asking a judge to allow testimony at his sentencing hearing about uncharged criminal conduct.

In a filing Tuesday, prosecutors asked to present multiple witnesses who say Cosby drugged and assaulted them. Sentencing is scheduled for Sept. 24. It was unclear who or how many witnesses prosecutors planned to call, but the filing says Cosby has not been charged with crimes related to their claims.

A spokesman for the 81-year-old comedian says he has no comment on the filing.

A jury convicted Cosby in April on three counts of aggravated indecent assault related to allegations made by Andrea Constand. Five additional women were allowed to testify at his trial despite no criminal charges being filed in those allegations.
