Los Angeles prosecutors will not be filing charges against Bill Cosby in two different sexual assault cases, one from 2008 and one from 1965.
In December of 2014, Cosby was sued in civil court by a third woman in Los Angeles court who said she was raped by him, also at the Playboy Mansion, in 1974. The 78-year-old comedian was released on $1 million bail after answering to charges that he drugged and sexually assaulted a woman less than half his age at his Cheltenham home.
Still, he said, the investigation of Goins’ allegations revealed new information: “Most importantly, it uncovered documentary proof that Mr. Cosby was at the Playboy Mansion in early 2008, a time when Ms. Goins was under 18 years old”.
She alleged that Cosby gave her a drink at a party that caused her to black out. Prosecutors said that case was barred due to the statute of limitations.
Cosby’s attorneys had provided officials with an alibi, supporting their client’s claim that he wasn’t even in the state at the time of the alleged incident, while Playboy Mansion guest records did not list the funnyman as attending any events there that summer (08), reports TMZ.com.
CBS Los Angeles reported investigators probed claims by two women, identified only as Jane Doe #1 and #2, that they were assaulted by the comedian in 1965 and 2008. Goins said when she awoke, she was naked on a bed and Cosby, whose trousers were around his ankles, was biting her toes.
But the statute of limitations is longer in Pennsylvania – 12 years – than in California. Dickinson alleges Cosby smeared her name by saying she’s lying about alleged sexual misdeeds he committed against her.
He was charged last week with sexual assault in Pennsylvania – the first criminal case filed against the comedian.
The D.A. said that the accuser’s “statements were consistent with prior statements provided to investigators, but did not yield further evidence or investigative leads”. “Consequently, after evaluating all potential charges, there is insufficient evidence to prove these crimes beyond a reasonable doubt”.
