ELKINS PARK, Pa. (AP) — Bill Cosby has been released on $1 million bail on a sex assault charge in Pennsylvania.

Cosby was arraigned Wednesday afternoon in Elkins Park on the charge, which was filed over a 2004 encounter in his home outside Philadelphia.

Police say he was fingerprinted and photographed before being released. His next court hearing is Jan. 14.

Cosby is charged with drugging and sexually assaulting the woman. It’s the first criminal case brought against the comedian out of the torrent of allegations that destroyed his good-guy image as America’s Dad.

Cosby shook his head as reporters shouted questions at him before the hearing. His lawyers also didn’t comment.

The 78-year-old comedian said under oath that he had consensual sexual contact with the woman.

In court, he agreed to have no contact with the accuser.
