Los Angeles County Prosecutors Declined To File Charges Against Bill Cosby

Bill Cosby Files Motion to Dismiss Sexual Assault Accusers' Defamation Case

Los Angeles County prosecutors on Wednesday declined to file charges in two sexual assault cases involving Bill Cosby.

In one case, Chloe Goins alleged that she was assaulted by Cosby at the Playboy Mansion in 2008 when she was 18.

Goins alleged that at a party at the Holmby Hills mansion, Cosby gave her a drink that caused her to black out. When she awoke, she said, she found herself naked on a bed with Cosby biting her toes and his pants around his ankles, according to her attorney.

Last January, Goins, who has spoken publicly about the case, was interviewed for 2½ hours by an LAPD detective, according to her lawyer.

The D.A. said there was insuffient evidence to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

Cosby’s attorneys have denied the accusations and insisted he was not at the party.

The second case involved a woman who said that Cosby raped her in 1965 when she was 17 years old.

Prosecutors said the statute of limitations to file charges in that case had expired.

In 2015, the district attorney rejected a third Cosby case presented by the LAPD because the alleged incident occurred in 1974. Under California law, the legal deadline for prosecuting most rape cases involving an adult victim is 10 years. In most other adult sex-crime cases the statute of limitations is generally six years.

Cosby was charged with aggravated indecent assault last week in Pennsylvania.

Statutes of limitations vary widely from state to state when it comes to sexual crimes, from as short as a year for misdemeanors in some states to no deadline for rape in others. The charges filed this week in Montgomery County, Pa., came barely a month before the end of the 12-year window prosecutors there had to charge Cosby in the alleged 2004 assault.

    Leave this man alone and let him live out the rest of his life in peace. We all sin and fall short of the glory of God. Receive his apology and some of you stop lying. We must take responsiblity for our wrong doings and Jesus said who ever is without sin cast the first stone. Now Bill sin no more and go in peace. Bring back the Cosby Show and the Cosby Kids for families of the future to enjoy!!!!!

      Cosby has not only never offered an apology for these women to accept, he denies any wrongdoing, and casts his victims in the role of lying, conniving gold diggers. He is not taking responsibility for his “sins”, and is a disgusting sexual predator who thinks his famous status protects him by being above the law. He deserves to go to prison, just like all other rapists. He certainly has fallen short of “the glory of God.” His age and status have nothing to do with excusing him from paying the price for his vicious treatment of these women. 57 women, to be exact. 57. 57 liars? No way.
