Bill Cosby Sexual Assault Case Update: Los Angeles Prosecutors Reviewing Evidence
It came as a shock to every one when “The Cosby Show” star Bill Cosby was accused of sexual assault (ranging from being groped, drugged, or molested) by at least 50 women—the list including supermodel Janice Dickinson.
Cosby’s camp has denied all allegations up to now. Read on for the latest update on the case.
According to Reuters, Los Angeles prosecutors are now reassessing sexual assault evidence against Bill Cosby, a county official confirmed Thursday, supporting a case that could mark initial criminal charges against the comedian.
Twenty-four-year-old model Chloe Goins, brought allegations to the Los Angeles police that Cosby drugged and assaulted her in 2008, back when she was aged 18, at the Playboy Mansion, also in LA.

Jane Robison, LA County District Attorney spokeswoman mentioned that the sex crimes division is reviewing evidence turned over by detectives who were investigating Goins’ case’, although it was not mentioned when prosecutors would resolve whether to press accusations against the “Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids” star.
A police spokesperson also affirmed that investigators presented a case to prosecutors, but he declined to comment further. A representative for Cosby also declined to comment on Thursday.
Cosby’s lawyers have repeatedly denied any misconduct on the veteran comedian’s part in the past. He is arranged to give a statement on October 9 in the civil lawsuit brought by a woman, Judy Huth, indicting the comedian of sexually abusing her at the Playboy Mansion in 1974 when she was only 15 years old.
On Wednesday, three more women— a former waitress, Sharon Van Ert and models Pamela Abeyta and Lisa Christie came out and alleged that Cosby drugged and sexually assaulting them in various incidents.
