At least 55 women have now accused comedian Bill Cosby of sexual assault, molestation or harassment, with the earliest alleged incidents occurring in the 1960s and the most recent in 2008. Several of the women have filed federal lawsuits or sought criminal investigations against Cosby. On December 30, 2015, Cosby was criminally charged for the first time. He was arrested in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania on a charge of aggravated indecent assault in a 2004 case brought by former Temple University employee Andrea Constand. The 78-year-old disgraced entertainer has denied all the charges and has fought the lawsuits brought against him. Cosby is still married to his wife, Camille. Several of the women have retained high-powered attorney Gloria Allred. Many of Cosby's accusers have banded together to bring attention to their cases. New York magazine put photos of 35 of the alleged victims on its cover in July. On Friday, October 9 at 9 p.m. Eastern, NBC's Dateline aired a special episode featuring interviews with 27 of the accusers. "This body of women are moving the needle. Not much. But we’re still moving it. And that’s the power we all feel," Beverly Johnson, a former model and one of the alleged victims, told Dateline.
