Bill Cosby finally catches a break, after a recent sexual assault case against him was thrown out of court.
According to TMZ, the L.A. County District Attorney recently rejected a case against the comedian brought forth by Judy Huth, who claims he sexually molested her in 1974 at the Playboy Mansion, when she was just 15 years old.
The D.A. says the statute of limitations has long run out on any possible case or prosecution.
At the time of the alleged crime, the charge of molesting a child under 18 would’ve been a misdemeanor. She would’ve had to have filed a complaint against Cosby with a year. The document states, “Even if there was an applicable felony charge, the statute of limitations that existed in 1974 for felony sex crimes was three years. Therefore, prosecution today for any potential felony sex crime from 1974 would also be barred.”
Huth says Cosby gave her alcohol and and then took her to the Mansion, where they eventually ended up in a private room together. In a lawsuit filed against Cosby, she alleges he began to “sexually molest her by attempting to put his hand down her pants, and then taking her hand in his hand and performing a sex act on himself without her consent.”
Cosby’s camp has called Huth both a liar and an extortionist, who unsuccessfully tried to sell her story to the tabloids a decade ago and then demanded $250,000 from him in return for her silence.
