Cosby tries again to delay criminal case, get charges tossed

Posted:

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Bill Cosby is trying again to delay hearings in his criminal case while he fights to get the sex-assault charges in Pennsylvania dismissed.

The actor-comedian has asked the state Supreme Court to review last week's decision by a mid-level appeals court that upheld the case.

Cosby is charged with indecent sexual assault over a 2004 encounter with a former Temple University employee. His preliminary hearing is set for May 24.

The state Supreme Court can decide to hear the appeal but still let the preliminary hearing take place, or it could put the hearing on hold.

District Attorney Kevin Steele has said it's time for the case to move forward.

Steele reopened the case last year after new evidence emerged that he thought strengthened the accuser's 2005 police complaint.
