Comedian Bill Cosby testified in 2005 that he obtained sedatives with the intent of giving them to young women in order to have sex with them, according to court documents unsealed on Monday. Cosby made the testimony in a civil case brought against him by a former Temple University employee who alleged he had tricked her into taking drugs before sexually assaulting her. The case was settled in 2006 for an undisclosed sum. More than 40 women have come forward in the past year alleging Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted them in incidents dating back decades. His attorneys have consistently denied the allegations, and he has never been criminally charged -- and most of the allegations exceed the statute of limitations. Cosby is best known for his role as Dr. Cliff Huxtable on the hit TV comedy "The Cosby Show".
