Bill Cosby's own words could be used against him. According to PageSix, prosecutors in the sex abuse trial against the legendary comedian want to bring his 1991 biography, Childhood, to show his history with date rape drugs.
The District Attorney filed papers citing Cosby's discussion about the so-called aphrodisiac called Spanish Fly. Cosby claims that it is “an aphrodisiac so potent that it could have made Lena Horne surrender to Fat Albert,” says Montgomery County DA Kevin Steele. He adds,
“These excerpts are relevant to proving that defendant had knowledge of a date-rape drug and a motive and intent to use it on the victim." Cosby also mentioned the drug while promoting his book on the Larry King Show.
Cosby's trial is set for June 5.
