Bill Cosby testified in 2005 that he received Quaaludes with the intent of giving them to young women in order to have sex with them.
He also admitted giving the drugs to at least one woman, along with “other people.”
The iconic comedian and actor has been accused of sexual misconduct by dozens of women, including many who’ve alleged that he had drugged and raped them. Almost all of the accusations nullified by statutes of limitations; Cosby has never been criminally charged.
In this particular instance, Cosby was testifying under oath in a lawsuit filed by a former Temple University employee. He said he gave the woman three half-pills of Benadryl, according to documents obtained by the Associated Press. Cosby settled this sexual abuse lawsuit for undisclosed terms back in 2006.
The 77-year-old resigned from his position on Temple’s Board of Trustees in December.
