FILE - In this Feb. 27, 2017, file photo, Bill Cosby departs after a pretrial hearing in his sexual assault case at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pa. Prosecutors hoping to use Bill Cosby's explosive deposition testimony about getting quaaludes to give women in his sexual-assault trial also want to use references he made about trying to slip women the aphrodisiac Spanish fly. In a court filing Thursday, March 30, 2017, they quote Cosby making Spanish fly references in his 1991 book "Childhood" and in an interview that year with Larry King. They say the comments show his familiarity with date rape drugs. (AP Photo/Matt Slocum, File)

FILE--In this file photo from Nov. 2, 2016, Bill Cosby arrives for a hearing in his sexual assault case at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pa. Montgomery County Judge Steven O'Neill will let only one other accuser testify at Cosby's sexual assault trial to bolster charges that the actor drugged and molested a woman at his estate near Philadelphia. The judges ruling made on Friday, Feb. 24, 2017, means prosecutors cannot call 12 other women to try to show that the 79-year-old comedian has a history of similar "bad acts." Cosby is set to go on trial in June over the 2005 complaint by a former Temple University employee. (AP Photo/Mel Evans, FILE)

Cosby was charged with aggravated sexual assault on Dec. 30, 2015, just days before the 12-year statute of limitations would have run out over a 2004 encounter at his estate near Philadelphia. Some legal experts wonder if Cosby will seek a plea deal after losing a series of defense motions. (AP Photo/Mel Evans, File)
