    Prosecutors in a Philadelphia suburb charged Bill Cosby with sexual assault Wednesday.

    It marks the first time charges have been officially brought against the beleaguered comedian, who has been accused by upwards of 60 women.

    The official charge is second-degree aggravated indecent assault. Montgomery County Assistant District Attorney Kevin R. Steele defined the act as "penetration" without the consent of his victim, former Temple University employee Andrea Constand. (During his press conference, Steele mistakenly said it was a first-degree charge.)

    If convicted, Cosby could get five to 10 years in prison, and up to a $25,000 fine.

    "Pills were provided. Wine was provided. The victim was frozen, paralyzed. A person in that condition is not able to give consent," Steele said.
