    Chloe Goins To Pursue Criminal Charges Against Bill Cosby After Sexual Abuse Claims

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — A model who claims Bill Cosby drugged and sexually abused her at the Playboy Mansion met with Los Angeles police on Wednesday to pursue criminal charges against the comedian over the 2008 incident.

    An attorney for Chloe Goins said after the meeting that his client is the first woman accusing Cosby of sexual misconduct whose case may fall within the statute of limitations. More than 15 women have accused Cosby of sexual misconduct, including several who say the comedian drugged and raped them in incidents dating back at least four decades.

    Goins did not speak during a press conference Wednesday. Her attorney, Spencer Kuvin, said she came forward after hearing about other women describing abuse by Cosby and realizing she might have a valid criminal case.


    An email to Cosby's attorney, Marty Singer, was not immediately returned.

    Kuvin declined to discuss what Goins told detectives but restated her allegations that Cosby drugged her at a 2008 event at the Playboy Mansion. Goins does not know what happened while she was blacked out but Kuvin says she awoke to find herself naked and Cosby over her.

    "Ms. Goins and I are here for two reasons: for justice and accountability," Kuvin said.

    Goins is at least the second woman to meet with Los Angeles police detectives to recount accusations against Cosby.

    Prosecutors rejected filing charges against Cosby based on allegations by Judy Huth, a Riverside County resident who is suing the comedian, alleging he abused her in the early 1970s when she was 15 years old. Huth's lawsuit states the abuse happened at the Playboy Mansion.

    Los Angeles police Commander Andrew Smith said that he could not confirm any investigation into Cosby and that sex abuse cases are "extremely confidential."

    Neither Smith nor Kuvin would speculate on what charges Cosby might face, and both noted that the statute of limitations for sex offenses are complex and depend on the facts of a case.

    Cosby's attorney has denied some of the accusations against the comedian, saying they have been discredited or come from discredited accusers. Cosby joked about the allegations against him at a recent show in Canada and is scheduled to perform two shows in Denver on Saturday night despite planned protests.

    "We hope that the people that are paying to attend Mr. Cosby's shows understand that these victimized women have broken their silence now and they will not remain quiet any longer," Kuvin said. "Mr. Cosby should, and will be held accountable for what he's done."

    He said women reporting abuse "should be encouraged and not joked about."

    Model accuses Cosby of sex assault; 'power in numbers,' lawyer says

    Facing a wall of cameras outside Los Angeles police headquarters Wednesday, a model and her attorney accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault at a Playboy Mansion party in 2008, possibly the first claim among a host of allegations against the comedian that could be criminally prosecuted.

    Chloe Goins, 24, said that during a "Midsummer Night’s Dream"-themed party at the Playboy Mansion seven years ago, Cosby drugged her drink and she passed out, and that when she regained consciousness later he was on top of her. She told the Daily Mail that Cosby was masturbating and licking her toes.

    Goins was 18 at the time of the alleged assault, said her attorney, Spencer T. Kuvin. Though Cosby faces accusations of sexual assault by more than 20 other women dating back 40 years, Goins’ claim is the first that could fall within California’s statute of limitations.

    Kuvin said his client had not been back to the mansion since or spoken with Cosby. He said she was afraid to come forward because of Cosby’s fame.

    “At some point, when a young lady becomes abused, until there are others that come out and support what they have to say, it’s a very scary thing,” Kuvin said. “Especially when you’re one person against an incredibly rich and powerful man.”

    “There’s power in numbers,” he added. “Mr. Cosby should and will be held accountable for what he’s done.”

    Bill Cosby sex assault allegations
    Cosby’s attorney, Martin D. Singer, was not immediately available for comment. The entertainer has denied past accusations.

    Despite the repeated allegations, Cosby has continued performing in a comedy tour.

    Last week, the 77-year-old comedian joked while performing in Canada that a woman in the audience had to “be careful drinking around me,” when she got up to get a refreshment. Most, if not all, of the allegations against Cosby involve him allegedly drugging a woman’s drink before assaulting her.

    Because why is everyone and their mother coming out now? What's more likely? That he serial raped 100 women or that these women had sex with him I. The hopes of achieving some fake, didn't get it, and now when their careers are over and the winds of liberal feminism have made every woman a victim are looking for a payday.

    It's like that Kesha whore that sued her manager for sexual assault and sought to be released from her contract. Not for a rapist to go to jail, but for release from her bad contract.

    Did Cosby possibly rape someone? Yes I believe it's poweible. But with every other over the hill or talentless woman that seeks to hop on board with this it makes it harder to want to see him go to jail.
