Bill Cosby Apologizes for Sexual Misconduct Case

Comedian Bill Cosby has apologized to the Canadian woman who accused him of drugging and sexually assaulting her at his Philadelphia home last year.

Andrea Constand shocked Cosby fans earlier this month by alleging the beloved funnyman took her back to his Philadelphia home after meeting her in a restaurant, where he drugged her, touched her breast and placed her hand on his genitals.

Pennsylvania authorities did not prosecute Cosby because they found "insufficient credible and admissible evidence" to support the woman's claims, Montgomery County District Attorney Bruce Castor explained in a statement.

But despite protesting his innocence throughout the five-week investigation, Cosby has admitted his actions were inappropriate and said sorry to his wife Camille for the distress the allegations caused her.

He tells newspaper National Enquirer, "Looking back on it, I realize that words and actions can be misinterpreted by another person, and unless you're a supreme being, you can't predict what another individual will do.

"But that's all behind me now, and I'm looking only toward a bright future. I'm not saying that what I did was wrong, but I apologize to my loving wife, who has stood by my side for all these years, for any pain I have caused her.

"These allegations have caused my family great emotional stress."
