Bill Cosby was my hero.

You know the reasons. Success. Athleticism. Humor. Wit. Great TV shows, including Picture Pages, Fat Albert and the Brown Hornet.

Yeah, I was a fan since before The Cosby Show, when I listened to his cassette Bill Cosby - Himself.

Daddy's great. He gives us chocolate cake.

He built his career on family humor, and I rarely heard him do a bit that didn't include his wife Camille, or his son Enos.

While I stick with the idea of innocence until proven otherwise, I am still bummed to report that he is being charged in Pennsylvania with aggravated indecent assault, a felony.

He's been under fire during the last year after an accuser came forward that opened the floodgates for women from his past to come out and accuse him of all sorts of sexual misconduct stretching all the way back to the 80's.

He settled out of court with at least one accuser, but now he is facing legal charges from the state of Pennsylvania.

Earlier this month, Cosby fought back and filed a countersuit against a group of women who have been accusing him, seeking damages for defamation of character.

Proceedings against Cosby are expected to start soon, and more details will emerge as the case continues.
