Just as the statute of limitations was about to expire, the Montgomery Country District Attorney's Office announced at a 10 a.m. press conference that it is issuing an arrest warrant for Bill Cosby in connection with the 2004 drugging and rape of a Temple University employee.
However, her optimism wasn't without reservation. "We'll have to see what happens," her attorney said. "We hope justice will be done. We will cooperate fully."

"A person in that state cannot give consent."
"Reopening this case was not a question," he added. "It was our duty."
