In documents obtained by the Associated Press, comedian/actor, Bill Cosby admitted in 2005 to obtaining quaadludes, a sedative pill that relaxes the central nervous system, with the intent of giving them to young women he wanted to have sex with. He also admitted to giving the sedative to at least one woman and “other people.”
At the time Cosby, 77, was testifying under oath about a case in a lawsuit filed by a former Temple University employee that claimed Cosby drugged her and sexually assaulted her. Cosby testified to giving the employee three and a half pills of Benadryl. Cosby settled the sexual abuse case for an undisclosed terms in 2006.
Cosby resigned from the Board of Trustees at Temple University in December.
Within the past year Cosby has been accused of sexually assaulting more than a dozen women, some cases dating back decades. Though many of Cosby’s accusers have just recently come forward, the accusations date back to the 70s however most of the cases never made it to trial because of statutes of limitations.
