Prosecutors in Pennsylvania have filed the first sexual assault charges against US comedian Bill Cosby.

Mr Cosby has been charged with aggravated indecent assault after an investigation involving a former local university employee and an alleged incident in 2004.

He has previously said under oath he had a consensual sexual encounter with the woman.

The case was re-opened after dozens of women alleged assault from Mr Cosby.

Andrea Constand, who was an employee at Temple University at the time of the alleged assault, sued Mr Cosby in 2005 and settled for an undisclosed sum after no charges were brought.

She has said she was tricked into taking drugs before being sexually assaulted by Mr Cosby.

Documents from the case were sealed until this summer.

Testimony from the lawsuits include Mr Cosby admitting he gave women a sedative, Quaaludes, when he wanted to have sex with them.
