On Wednesday (December 30), Bill Cosby was charged with felony aggravated indecent assault in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. The charge stems from an incident, which took place in January 2004, where the comedian allegedly drugged and sexually assaulted former Temple University employee Andrea Constand.

As the chaos for Cosby continues, his attorneys have come forth and released a statement on the "unjustified" criminal case against their client. Check it out below.

"The charge by the Montgomery County District Attorney's office came as no surprise, filed 12 years after the alleged incident and coming on the heels of a hotly contested election for this county's DA during which this case was made the focal point. Make no mistake, we intend to mount a vigorous defense against this unjustified charge and we expect that Mr. Cosby will be exonerated by a court of law."
