Bill Cosby admitted to purchasing sedatives with the intent of using them on women he wanted to have sex with, back in a 2005 deposition.

The deposition documents were released Monday after the AP went to court to demand their publication—they had previously been sealed at the request of Cosby’s attorneys, who were concerned the contents would ”embarrass’ their client.

No shit Sherlock…Because there's few things more embarrassing than admitting to drugging women for the purpose of sex…

Oh, and also, nothing more incriminating when facing a slew of accusations that you’ve drugged and raped other women in similar circumstances.

As Popdust previously reported, since last November, at least 40 women have come forward accusing the 77-year-old comedian of drugging and/or sexually assaulting them, with the earliest alleged incident dating back to 1965, and the most recent, 2008.

Cosby has kept schtum on the subject, offering up no comment on either the ever increasing number of allegations against him, or the cancellation of several of his shows last fall.

The deposition admission was made under oath as Cosby testified as part of a sexual abuse lawsuit that was filed by a former Temple University employee named Andrea Constand, back in 2005.

In the deposition, Cosby admitted to purchasing Quaaludes with the intent to give them to women he wanted to have sex with. He also ‘fessed up to drugging Constand with three half-pills of Benadryl.

The lawsuit was settled for undisclosed terms in 2006…. and good old Dr. Huxtable went on to (allegedly) rape another day.
