    Bill Cosby's trial surrounding allegations that he drugged and sexually assaulted former Temple employee Andrea Constand is set to begin June 5, 2017.

    The 79-year-old comedian is charged with three counts of aggravated indecent assault in the case. Constand alleges that Cosby drugged and violated her in January 2004 at his mansion in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania. Cosby has pleaded not guilty to all charges.


    After the court date was set, Cosby's lawyers released the following statement to ET.

    "Mr. Cosby is no stranger to discrimination and racial hatred, and throughout his career Mr. Cosby has always used his voice and his celebrity to highlight the commonalities and has portrayed the differences that are not negative -- no matter the race, gender and religion of a person.

    "The time has come to shine a spotlight on the trampling of Mr. Cosby's civil rights. Gloria Allred apparently loves the media spotlight more than she cares about justice. She calls herself a civil rights attorney, but her campaign against Mr. Cosby builds on racial bias and prejudice that can pollute the court of public opinion. And when the media repeats her accusations -- with no evidence, no trial and no jury -- we are moved backwards as a country and away from the America that our civil rights leaders sacrificed so much to create.

    Typically, when a group bigger than a football team (with nearly every race represented) all come forward with a similar story, there is some merit behind it.

    Incidentally, I never really looked up pictures of the victims, but I found this one to be a little amusing for this specific message board

    Tim, I'm getting the impression that you don't have a job.
