no title

Bill Cosby's upcoming trial could be VERY lengthy.

As we reported on Wednesday, the comedian was arraigned in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania for one charge of aggravated indecent assault against Andrea Constand.

The Cosby Show star did not enter a plea, and was released on $1 million bail.

For this upcoming trial, more than 50 women who have accused Cosby of assault could testify against him.

Although some of these allegations are past the statute of limitations, they could still be used as witnesses to establish Constand's credibility, as well as the 78-year-old's pattern of behavior.

According to Gloria Allred who represents 29 of these women:

"I do imagine that it will be a very very vigorous cross examination of any women who may be called as witnesses, who may be called because they have alleged similar conduct by Mr Cosby. I think many of these women have indicated they are prepared to do that. They are going to demonstrate that kind of courage and tell their truth. They will be ready and they know they have a duty to participate if they are subpoenaed."

If convicted, Cosby can face up to 10 years in prison.

Robert Durst Makes Extradition Deal With Feds — See Why The Jinx Is 'Eager' To Face Murder Charges In Los Angeles!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersSad Sad

no title

Robert Durst is heading back to the West Coast.

Earlier this year, the subject of the HBO docu-series The Jinx was charged with murder for the 2000 execution-style shooting of his college friend Susan Berman — allegedly to keep her from talking to investigators about the disappearance of his first wife in 1982.

Next summer, the New York real estate heir will return to El Lay to face the murder charges — and possibly the death penalty.

On Tuesday, the Los Angeles County district attorney's office said the former fugitive agreed to be extradited from New Orleans by August 18, 2016.

According to court filings, the 72-year-old has struck a plea deal with federal prosecutors on a federal gun charge — which has kept him held in Louisiana since March.

One of Durst's lawyers, Dick DeGuerin, said in a statement that the extradition deal was:

"Part of our effort to have Robert Durst face and defeat the California murder charge as soon as possible. Bob Durst didn't kill Susan Berman and doesn't know who did… He is eager to go to trial and prove his innocence."

We're not sure what will come of this extradition agreement, but hopefully the truth comes out and justice will be served.

When Seminole County Judge Jerri Collins asked the sobbing woman why she was a no show, the alleged victim said she had "anxiety" and was "not in a good place" at the time of the July hearing.

Former NAACP chapter president Rachel Dolezal made headlines after her parents outed her for pretending to be black for over a decade. But Rachel's ethnicity only scratches the surface of the ongoing controversy surrounding the Dolezal family.

It's been reported that Dolezal's brother Joshua has been accused of sexually abusing a female sibling in 2001 or 2002 — when she was only 6 or 7 years old. A trial is set in August for the 39-year-old, currently a college professor, who was charged on four accounts of sexual assault in 2013.

According to reports, the 20-year-old alleged victim told officials that Joshua made the victim undress in front of him and forced her to perform oral sex on him.
