But Cosby isn’t the only celebrity to be accused of sexual wrongdoings. These are twelve famous people accused of sexual misconduct, some for mild indecent exposure, while others served time in jail for rape. All took obvious hits to their careers and public image.

The comedian has been accused by numerous women of sexual assault and rape with the earliest allegations taking place in the mid-1960s. In 2004, Bill Cosby was accused of sexual misconduct by 13 different women. The civil lawsuit claimed he drugged and sexually assaulted the women. Cosby settled with undisclosed terms.
