WATCH: Bill Cosby Appears at Courthouse for Arraignment

Comedian Bill Cosby made his first court appearance on Wednesday to face charges of aggravated indecent assault.

Cosby is accused of assaulting a former Temple University employee, Andrea Constand, in 2004. The charges were announced earlier in the day by the Montgomery County District Attorney. He turned himself in to face the charges after an arrest warrant was issued.

A crowd of photographers and reporters gathered outside the Elkins Park courthouse, where Cosby, dressed in a gray sweater and sweatpants, was led into the building by his attorneys. The brief arraignment occurred at about 2:30 p.m.

According to CNN’s Jean Casarez, Cosby entered the small Pennsylvania court room and was being guided by attorney Monique Pressley, who escorted him in along with a male lawyer. During the short hearing, Cosby looked down at the table where he was sitting.

His bail was set at $1 million. Cosby also surrendered his passport. He is not allowed to make contact with the victim. He spoke briefly, smiling, while telling the judge yes he understood he could not contact the victim, according to CNN. Cosby also smiled and told the judge “thank you” after the judge wished him good luck.

Cosby was then driven to the Cheltenham, Pennsylvania, Police Department, where he was booked. He is expected back in court in January.
