Bill Cosby Found Liable Of Assaulting Teen Years Ago, Jury Awards Her Major Money
Bill Cosby has more legal trouble on his hands. On Tuesday, June 21, 2022, he was found liable for sexually assaulting Judy Huth, a woman who claims Cosby assaulted her when she was a teenager.
According to Huth, the sexual assault occurred in 1975 at the Playboy Mansion, when she was 16 years old and Cosby was approximately 37.
Now Huth is about to get paid, after a Santa Monica, CA jury awarded her $500,000 in a civil case against Cosby.
Below are the details of the alleged incident:
Via TMZ – Huth was 16 years old when she and a 17-year-old friend met Cosby on a film set in a park. She claimed Cosby invited them to accompany him to the Playboy Mansion a few days later.
Huth testified Cosby was alone with her in a bedroom at the mansion, where he attempted to put his hand down her pants. She says she lied to Cosby about being on her period to get him to stop, but claimed Cosby exposed himself and forced her hand on his erect penis and used it to masturbate until climax.
Cosby didn’t attend Tuesday’s trial, but the jury was shown a video of his 2015 deposition, in which he’d denied all of Judy Huth’s claims. He also stated that he didn’t even recall meeting her. But Huth’s lawyers then showed a photo of Cosby and Huth smiling together at the Playboy Mansion back in the day.
Cosby’s legal defense team claims that Huth is trying to seize an opportunity to come up financially off of Bill’s back, by creating false accusations against him.
Huth didn’t file claims against Cosby for the alleged 1975 sexual assault incident until 2014. Regarding why Huth waited 39 years to take legal action…she reportedly said it was because she started having anxiety attacks and flashbacks that began in 2014, and lasted up until 2018 — the year Cosby was found guilty of sexual assault in a separate case vs. accuser, Andrea Constandt, resulting in him being sent to prison.
Meanwhile, Bill Cosby has been radio silent ever since the jury awarded Judy Huth $500,000 in their civil case. The last time he’s publicly spoken out o the matter was on June 9, 2022, when he tweeted an article about him denying Huth’s claims.
