Billy Cosby admits drugging woman for sex in 2005

Los Angeles, July 7 (IANS) Comedian Bill Cosby admitted in a 2005 deposition that he obtained Quaaludes, an anxiolytic and a sedative-hypnotic drug, with the intent of drugging young women in order to have sex with them.

According to newly released court documents, the 77-year-old also admitted giving the sedative to at least one woman, reports

The documents from a sexual abuse lawsuit filed by a former employee of Temple University in Philadelphia were made public on Monday.

In the 2005 case, Cosby testified under oath that he gave the woman three half-pills of Benadryl. He settled the lawsuit in 2006 for undisclosed terms.

Cosby told the Philadelphia women’s attorneys – Dolores Troiani and Bebe Kivitz – that he obtained seven prescriptions for Quaaludes.

He answered in the affirmative when an attorney asked: “You gave them to other people?”

Troiani also asked: “When you got the Quaaludes, was it in your mind that you were going to use these Quaaludes for young women that you wanted to have sex with?”

Cosby again answered “Yes”.

He also admitted to drugging and sleeping with another woman.

“I meet (name redacted) in Las Vegas,” he told Troiani. “She meets me back stage. I give her Quaaludes. We then have sex. I do not – I can’t judge at this time what she knows about herself for 19 years, a passive personality,” he said in the deposition.

More than 30 women have accused Cosby of sexual assault, but he has denied it. Earlier, some of his shows were postponed or cancelled following the accusations.
