The University of Cincinnati moves to revoke the honorific title

Camille Cosby released her first official statement since her husband, Bill Cosby, 54, was convicted of sexual assault a week ago. Veuer's Chandra Lanier has the story.

The Board of Trustees of the University of Cincinnati will meet Tuesday morning to consider the revocation of the honorary title of comedian Bill Cosby.

Cosby was found guilty of three counts of indecent assault aggravated by drugging and molesting a woman in her home more than a decade ago.

UC awarded William H. Cosby Jr. a degree of Doctor Honoris Causa in Humanities in 2001.

The board will meet to discuss the revocation of the title at 8 a.m. Tuesday at the 620 University Pavilion. Spokesman Greg Vehr said the trustees will likely make a decision one way or another on Tuesday.

To his knowledge, the UC has never revoked an honorific title before.
