Bill Cosby is blind, according to his lawyers

Business Insider     JETHRO NEDEDOG     September  7th 2016 

Bill Cosby will stand trial for the 2004 felony sexual assault of Andrea Constand in her Philadelphia home on June 5, 2017, a Pennsylvania judge ruled Tuesday.

But even with all the maneuvering by his attorneys to avoid the trial, the bigger, more surprising news arrives in their declaration to the judge that the comedian and former TV star is completely blind.

That declaration led to the judge promising that the court would accommodate any special needs for the defendant.

The loss of one's eyesight isn't a small sidenote, especially in a trial that will undoubtedly require Cosby to identify those testifying for and against him. The prosecution is hoping that at least 13 women will testify about their alleged sexual assaults at the hands of Cosby.

There's also the potential that his advanced age of 79 years, coupled with the blindness and extra accommodations furnished by the court, could create some sympathy for the defendant.

The most recent reports surrounding Cosby's eyesight came in July when The New York Post's Page Six quoted unnamed sources claiming Cosby was not only "completely blind," but also homebound as a result. It went on to say: "Cosby reportedly has a degenerative eye condition called keratoconus, a condition that causes the eye's cornea to bulge." The comedian's attorneys didn't comment on that story.

Before that, there was another round of reports that mentioned his eyesight. In December 2015, Cosby's mugshot was released to the public and the appearance of his eyes quickly became a point of discussion. His right eye, especially, looked discolored.

The next month, Cosby lawyer Monica Pressley appeared on CBS News and was asked to explain the appearance of Cosby's eyes in his mugshot and whether it would be used as part of his defense.

"He's a 78-year-old blind man who they've chosen to charge. That's not a defense to a charge, that's just a fact," Pressley said.

We'll have to see if Cosby's blindness indeed plays into his defense.

Watch Bill Cosby enter the courthouse recently to cries of support:


  1. Bill Cosby should be legally dead for the heartache he cause those ladies , their families and his bald head crazy wife .
    Camille has the gall to say she didn't know .
    The lying B***H

  2. Anonymous ,
    My thoughts exactly .
    Cosby has enough money to play this out . They both are leeches and both are lying bitches .
    Nuff sez ...

  3. The blindness is a new angle. It will garner some pity. His eyesight was just fine two months ago when he was walking everywhere without assistance. Anyhow you don't need eyesight to pull your dangle out of your pants and assault an unconscious woman. You can feel your way to that destination. So the sudden eye problems shouldn't affect the jury.
    The guy makes me want to take a shower every time I read about him.

    1. I know people that is legally blind ...I also know people that wears glasses ... it's takes time for your eyes to dim ... everyone I know do everything to save their sight ...
      PIC , you are so right , a blind man can get choochie Hahaha ... Stevie Wonder ... Ray Charles for starters
      Like I said to Anonymous , they both are leeches .
      Cosby is a low-down douche bag , he turned his daughter in to keep himself out of the spotlight .
      A parent will stick with their child through thick and thin and try to get them help .
