Could this be a glimmer of hope for Bill Cosby?
The L.A. County District Attorney has decided not to charge the formerly beloved television star with sexual assault stemming from two separate allegations made in 1965 and 2008. TMZ reports that the statute of limitations has run out on the 1965 case, while there was insufficient evidence in the 2008 claims made by Chloe Goins.
The site continues:
Chloe Goins claimed she woke up in a bedroom at the Playboy Mansion only to find her breasts were moist and Cosby was at the foot of her bed biting her toe and masturbating. Our sources say the D.A. concluded this type of allegation — sucking someone’s toes — did not fall into a category that would extend the statute of limitations.
And there was another problem with Goins’ case. She claimed the incident occurred at a Playboy Mansion summer party and Cosby had an alibi that he was out of town, plus he was not on the guest lists for any events at the Mansion that summer.
In the 1965 case, the D.A. ran into problems regarding the accuser’s credibility – she apparently changed her story, first claiming she was 17 at the time of the alleged assault, before saying she was actually 18.
Bill Cosby has already been charged with sexual assault in Pennsylvania. He was arraigned last Wednesday and is out on $1 million bail.
