Beleaguered entertainer Bill Cosby arrived at a Pennsylvania courthouse early Monday for the start of his sexual assault trial, accompanied by “The Cosby Show” co-star Keshia Knight Pulliam.

Cosby, whose wife Camille was not with him, used a cane to enter the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, where he will stand trial for charges stemming from the alleged 2004 drugging and molestation of Andrea Constand, 44, a former Temple University basketball manager.

Cosby, 79, contends the sex was consensual.

The trial for which two of the 12 jurors are black and the rest are white, is expected to last two weeks.
