Probe launched into Cosby sex assault claim

Police in Los Angeles have opened an investigation into a woman’s claims that Bill Cosby molested her when she was 15 years old.

Judy Huth, one of several women to have recently made allegations against the actor, met with detectives yesterday.

She filed a civil lawsuit against him earlier in the week.

Cosby is counter-suing the 55-year-old, saying she attempted to extort money from him, and has described her claims as “absolutely false”.

In her legal action, Huth claims Cosby gave her alcohol and forced her to perform a sex act on him in a bedroom of the Playboy Mansion around 1974.

She is seeking unspecified damages for “psychological damage and mental anguish”, which have only recently been linked to the incident.

Cosby’s court filing seeks legal fees of $33,000.

It says a psychologist has not supplied relevant certification about the effects on Huth and says she tried to sell her story to a newspaper 10 years ago. (BBC)

    The fall of a black icon for his criminal past or conspiracy?

    Either way what does any of this prove? She could only want money, and in the end how will money fix her issue? Stupse even if the man goes to jail it makes no sense he’s in his 70’s, he has like what 20 years more tops? And even then that’s pushing it

    African American are not suppose to be filthy rich and famous. Regardless ! No matter what the case may be, they are all going down some how. Don’t know if these things happen. I am not the judge of anything here. Why all these women now climbing out of the worm wood and the gall ? Is it a set up ? I don’t know. It looks quite fishy to me. How is it that only the African Americans are always the one involves in these scandals ? Do whites commit crimes also ? Are they too weak to rape, choke and rob ? It seems as they can only shot people dead and call it self defense.

    Now I think some here missing the point… these accusations about Bill Cosby are nothing new. This been around for years.. further it’s not just one woman…. and the person that say why only African Americans are the only ones caught up in these scandals need to do some research… you’ll find that you only pay attention to the ones that affect African Americans… here in the UK in the last year alone there has been a number of prosecutions for historical sexual assaults on some wealthy stars…all WHITE not one black. I can’t say if Bill Cosby is guilty or not… but I wouldn’t rush to his defence just because he is Black and a few of his accusers are white…

      America is caught up with portraying black people as animals. They always focus on the negative things in the black community. That’s why this news is so irritating. All his accusers are white women who should have done something about this a long time ago.
