(ANSA) – NEW YORK, June 21 – Bill Cosby is guilty of sexually assaulting a woman who was a minor at the time.
The jury decided that the civil trial was coming to an end in California. The victim, Judy Huth, was 16 years old at the time.
The harassment occurred at Hugh Hefner’s Playboy Mansion in 1975.
Huth accepted the invitation of Cosby, who at that time was already a famous actress, to join him at Villa Hefner, but she did not expect that the comedian, who in those years starred in films with Sidney Poitier and Richard Pryor, would force her to do so. Unwelcome sexual act Cosby will now have to pay half a million dollars in compensation.
The ruling helps demolish the image of the former “good dad” of The Bill Cosby Show (in Italy, “The Robinsons”), who was previously convicted by a criminal court of sexual harassment and then released for a form defect.
Huth entered the field in 2014, but in addition to her, the L.A. ruling satisfies dozens of women who, over the years, have told the same story about Cosby: cajoled and seduced in the bedroom, drugged or induced to drink. Until you lose consciousness and then attack you.
Many of them, at the time of the first trial, could not be heard because they had not advanced at the time of the events, but in the case of Judy Huth, the possibility of putting Cosby in front of his responsibilities was. He admitted that in 1975 the woman was a minor and filed a suit in civil court. (Dealing).
