Topless Woman, Former ‘Cosby Show’ Extra Nicolle Rochelle, Charges At Bill Cosby At Courthouse
A former extra from the The Cosby Show was taken into custody after she charged at Bill Cosby topless when he arrived at the Pennsylvania courthouse.
Eighty-year-old Cosby arrived at court on Monday for his sexual assault retrial, as he walked in Nicolle Rochelle, 39, jumped over the barrier and charged at him. She had “Cosby” and “rapist” painted on her back along with some names such as “Lisa” and “Pamela” on her arms and torso and “Women’s Lives Mater” down her front. She was tackled to the ground and charged with disorderly conduct, if convicted she’ll be fined and will pay court fees.
Cosby’s spokesperson, Andrew Wyatt told reporters that the incident didn’t phase Cosby because he “can’t see.”
“He can’t see so it didn’t affect him at all,” Wyatt said. He added that the woman’s protest was “sad” and asked about the “message” it sent.
“What concerns me is that you’re out here protesting – and you have a right to protest for sexual assault victims – and you protest by taking your clothes off. What kind of message does that send? So I don’t think she solved anything for herself or for the cause that they’re out there marching and protesting about. So I think it was a shame, it was sad, it was in poor taste,” Wyatt said.
Cosby wasn’t touched during the incident and remained unharmed.
The comedian claims the sexual situations he found himself in were consensual, but he’s faced with three counts of aggravated indecent assault, and each case can be punishable for up to 10 years.
Cobsy’s new lawyer Tom Messereau reportedly will be taking a more aggressive approach towards the case. He reportedly will be proposing that accuser Andrea Constand is a greedy liar and other accusers are hopping on the bandwagon to get their time in the spotlight.
