On May 24, a Pennsylvania judge ordered Bill Cosby to face criminal trial for sexual assault charges filed against the celebrity. In the May 26 edition of the Political Gabfest’s Slate Plus bonus segment, hosts David Plotz, John Dickerson, and Emily Bazelon debate the statute of limitations on the Cosby case. Should it apply to a crime that occurred 12 years ago? Does rape warrant the same statute of limitations as murder? And what’s next for the man known for his iconic sweaters and his family TV show? The Political Gabfest takes on these questions and more—so stay tuned!
