us break it all down. ken, thank you very much. >> sure. >> today's ruling not really a surprise, right. >> wasn't surprise to me at all. it's a low bar for preliminary hearing. you just have to prove there was probable cause that a crime was committed, and in this case what they did, they had an investigator read andrea constand's statement to the court where andrea constand basically accused bill cosby of sexual conduct and that was enough to carry the day and therefore they're over the probable cause hearing and now we're going forward with the trial. >> how do you expect this to play out over the next few months. >> i think it will be interesting. first of all, i think this is going to be the biggest trial since oj. without a doubt. this is america's dad, somebody that basically everybody on the planet knows. what's interesting how do they get a fair juror here? who hasn't heard of bill cosby and the allegations? i think they'll spend a month just picking a jury alone. so i think the whole process is going to be interesting but the neck thing we're waiting for is an actual trial date. >> ken, cosby lawyers have been pounding the last five months
5:31 pm
trying to hammer away at all this witnesses and the evidence. what are your thoughts on the legal team now that they've got this trial date. >> the prosecution we're talking about. >> cosby's lawyers. >> cosby's lawyers first i think what they're going to do they're trying to bring up inter consistent cease that maybe con stand has given over time in times of her story. she told the story a number of different times. point out 90 consistent cease and also they'll point out a year after this supposed sexual abuse that occurred that she actually reported it. they'll talk about why did it take her so long to report it. the other thing that i think they'll going to do obviously the issue here is consent. so they're going to challenge whether there was consent or not the way i would do that, iain, i'd bring up obviously in a the crew courtroom she went to his house voluntarily, she took the pills voluntarily, she did a lot of things voluntarily. now she's claiming that, you know, she didn't consent to the sex. i think that that's a tough case just her word against his kiss his. the key in this case will be the
5:32 pm
ruling regard to other witnesses. 50 some odd women made the same claim. that will be the crucial ruling in the case when the prosecution attempts to have those witnesses come forward forth in a courtroom to testify against bill cosby. >> all right. ken, cosby faces definite nation lawsuits from many accuse accus. how do you think today's ruling affect those cases. >> they're about it if the case goes forward and if andrea constand wins and shows that bill cosby did sexual al abuse her, then it's going to help all those defamation cases. remember the defamation cases based on the fact that these women came out and said that bill cosby, upping, sexually abused them. bill cosby called them all liars. so what they then did, they sued bill cosby ton defamation grounds. so obviously, a lawsuit that proves bill cosby did in fact abuse andrea constand will help all the defamation cases for sure.
5:33 pm
>> will we see any of them take the witness stand. >> i think we may. my bet you're going to see them. the standard here is called mo, mo is modus operandi. the method of operation. and if you can prove that in the case that someone has done something over and over and over again that it's their method of operation, then it becomes admissible in courtroom. i think that that's what these 50 women i think that's going to be their purpose in this case to show that mo was that this is what he did. he drugged women for the purpose of having sex without consent. i think a judge will rule that these witnesses are going to be loud to testify. >> that will be fascinating. 78 years old he is, ken. three charges that he faces. how long do you think he'll get if convicted. >> he could get up to 30 years. certainly get a low of five and high of 30. he's 78-year-old. if he's convicted i think i'll die in prison. >> ken rothweiler thank you so much for your insight today. >> good to see you. >> our coverage of the cosby trial want comes next continues online at fo fox 29..com. >> fox 29 weather authority
