In the California case, Judy Huth accuses the comedian of forcing her to perform a sex act on him in a bedroom at the mansion around 1974, when she was 15.
Cosby, 79, pleaded not guilty and has described the sexual encounter with Constand as consensual. Almost 60 women have accused Cosby of sexual assault and he’s now facing lawsuits from 10 women.
Cosby claims that the town hall tour that was announced by the PR team of Cosby last week would be a highly unlikely happening, at least not prior to any re-trials of Cosby on a criminal basis. “To talk to young people because this is bigger than Bill Cosby“. “Any further information about public plans will be given at the appropriate time”.
“Mr. Cosby is going to go out and use his voice, to let it be heard, and to try to educate young men and women on how to avoid this because they do not have the wealth of resources that he has”, Wyatt said, adding that some people don’t know enough about what constitutes a sexual assault allegation.
Bill Cosby holds up the hand of his defense attorneys Angela Agrusa as he exits the courthouse after a declared mistrial on the sixth day of jury deliberations of his sexual assault trial at the Montgomery County Courthouse on June 17, 2017 in Norristown, Pennsylvania. When that trial starts, Cosby may not have wrapped up the so-called sexual assault tour that Cosby reportedly planned to embark upon. “The current propaganda that I am going to conduct a sexual assault tour is false”, the comedian said.
“He does not take lightly these criminal charges”, she said.
Prosecutors plan to retry the case against the former star of The Cosby Show in about four months. Held up because of the Pennsylvania trial and the nearly certainty that Cosby would claim his Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination, a second deposition is rare in California civil cases.
The Press-Enterprise typically does not identify alleged victims of sexual abuse, but Huth has come forward publicly with her accusations in December 2014.
“In (Cosby’s) criminal case, the allegations are drugging and incapacitating a woman and then sexually assaulting her after she is not able to resist”, Allred said.
Philadelphia defense lawyer Alan Tauber, who isn’t involved in the case, says that’s less likely for Cosby because his fame makes him an unlikely flight risk.
