If convicted of the most serious charge of aggravated indecent assault, he could face up to ten years in prison.
The woman, identified as Nicolle Rochelle, was tackled to the ground by police and charged with disorderly conduct, the District Attorney's Office said in a statement just after noon. Yet while those stars have faced professional repercussions, Cosby is now the only once-powerful celebrity facing criminal charges.
The figure was revealed during opening remarks at the actor and comedian's retrial in Pennsylvania on Monday. In the original trial, 1 additional woman testified.
At a pretrial hearing last month, Assistant District Attorney Stewart Ryan previewed how the prosecution might counter the defence's allegations that Constand was setting up Cosby. According to a motion from the defense filed on Friday, the 11th juror allegedly said he's already decided Cosby is guilty. She told Allyn that she never had a bad experience with Cosby at the time, but was "hoping victims would feel some sort of connection with me".
Cosby, who has been accused of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his Pennsylvania home in 2004, is thought to have walked back to his vehicle to let the commotion die down before heading back out.
Nicolle Rochelle - who appeared in a recurring role on The Cosby Show - had painted "Cosby rapist" and various women's names on her body and chanted near the comedian. That information was not available during the first trial.

Bill Cosby's accuser Andrea Constand leaves the courtroom on June 12, 2017, after closing arguments in the comedian's sexual-assault trial at the Montgomery County Courthouse.
The actor, who starred in the 1980s TV series The Cosby Show, has faced allegations from dozens of other women but has denied them all.
Judge Steven T. O'Neill of the Montgomery County Court of Common Pleas met privately with both sides to discuss a defense contention that one juror had told another prospective juror last week that he thought Cosby was guilty.
In a twist, the judge hinted that he might not allow jurors to hear Cosby's lurid deposition testimony about giving quaaludes to women before sex.
The testimony of the adviser, Marguerite Jackson, 56, was barred during the first trial when Constand testified that she did not know Jackson.
