Bill Cosby is being sued for sexually assaulting a 15-year-old

Finally, one of Bill Cosby‘s alleged victims – and I say alleged not because I don’t believe that he’s guilty, but because legally a suspect is “innocent until proven guilty”, which is bullshit – has come forward and has pressed charges against him for abuse she experienced at Cosby’s hands in 1974… when she was only 15 years old.

Via The Associated Press:

Bill Cosby was sued Tuesday by a Southern California woman who claims the comedian molested her in a bedroom of the Playboy Mansion around 1974 when she was 15 years old.

Judy Huth’s sexual battery lawsuit does not specify how much she is seeking from Cosby, who has in recent weeks faced renewed accusations that he drugged and sexually assaulted more than a dozen women for many years.

Huth’s lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, however, is the first time a woman has gone public claiming Cosby abused her when she was underage. A second woman told Pittsburgh television station KDKA last month that Cosby drugged her to the point of unconsciousness in the 1980s when she was 15.

Huth’s lawsuit states that she and a 16-year-old friend first met Cosby at a Los Angeles-area film shoot and the comedian gave the girls drinks a week later at a tennis club.

The lawsuit states that Cosby took them to the Playboy Mansion after several drinks, and told the teenagers to lie and say they were 19 years old if asked. Her lawsuit states Cosby forced her to perform a sex act on him with her hand.

Dear God. Again, here’s yet another victim coming forward – and the first example of the fact that age was no issue to this pervert. I’m sure more and more of these stories will continue to come out, but again, I don’t think anything will come of it. When you have people like Jill Scott coming out and saying shit like that people are trying to destroy this wonderful man’s legacy, that goes to show that people are brainwashed into thinking he’s incapable of being so disgusting.

  • I’m not saying he didn’t do the things women have accused him of, but to say it’s bullshit that people are innocent until proven guilty is bullshit itself. It’s a part of our justice system for a reason, and it’s a damn good part. If people were convicted just because someone FELT like they committed a crime, well, what the fuck? ASSUMING someone is guilty is a bullshit reason for them to be convicted. There should be evidence. It should be beyond reasonable doubt.

    It’s not bullshit.

    • Amen. Funny how there’s no mention that the noted fame-whore attorney, Gloria Allred, is behind this “lawsuit”? Allred’s “lawsuits” wind up getting thrown out so often because her extortion racket is predicated on NOT going to trial, but bullying. Kind of like Al Sharpton and his racist “National Action Network” of professional whiners and bullies.

  • God, I fucking hate that ambulance chasing, media whore of a lawyer.

    That being said, you really think the ‘innocent until proven guilty’ thing is bullshit? So….you basically think that people are guilty until proven innocent? Let’s hope you’re never charged with anything.

    I think there’s a compelling argument, and many allegations, but I don’t understand why if there’s so much evidence, why they don’t prosecute? I mean, I understand the whole thing about no one believing them back then, but now is a different time. Unless the statute of limitations has run out on all of these individuals (which clearly it hasn’t, thankfully), he really needs to be charged and heard in court. If he did do it, then he needs to be exposed. If he didn’t, then he deserves the chance to clear his name. Either way, it’s something that needs to finally be addressed because it’s been a dirty secret in Hollywood for way too long.

    • That’s not what I said and I don’t think anything of the sort. The law places the onus on the prosecution to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, not the defense. This should not be changed in practice (though frankly, there have been PLENTY of wrongful convictions based on much less than absolutes), but I’m saying my PERSONAL opinion is that I will not withhold judgment on him. Regardless of having seen a set of “facts” in front of me, I don’t believe he’s innocent. I don’t need a trial to tell me what I already believe, which is that he’s guilty. Given that I’ll never be on a jury, I’m fine with that decision – prejudicial (in the truest sense of the word) or not.

      • Actually Gloria isnt and wont prosecute this case…. This is a civil matter and “beyond reasonable doubt” isnt in play. Civil matters only need “a perponderance of evidence” to establish guilt. Remember, just because you have done something, doesnt mean that you are guilty in the eyes of the law.
