A U.S. district judge has ruled at Cosby’s preliminary hearing that prosecutors had sufficient evidence to bring the 78-year-old Cosby to trial.
His arraignment is set for July 20, at which time he’ll enter a plea and a trial date will be sect.
If convicted Cosby could get 10 years.
His accuser is Andrea Constand, a former Temple University employee, who’s now a massage therapist in Toronto.

The ex-basketball player, who met Cosby through her former job at Temple University - Cosby's alma mater - claims that she and the entertainer had been friends. Constand alleges that Cosby invited her to suburban Philadelphia home where he gave her some pills that made her dizzy and that he touched her breasts and placed her hand on his groin VARIOUS

Prosecutors reopened the case last year after dozens of women made similar allegations and after Cosby’s sealed deposition in Constand’s lawsuit was made public.
Cosby has not entered a plea since his December 30 arrest.
He’s free on $1-million bail.
