Bill Cosby got out of prison on a technicality, but now he’s in another world of trouble as a free man. The disgraced comic legend was dragged into civil court, and he did not fair too well.
TMZ reports that Bill Cosby was just found liable in a civil suit filed by Judy Huth. She claimed that he sexually assaulted her at the Playboy Mansion back in 1975 when she was 16-years-old..
Huth was awarded $500,000 by a jury. At the time, Huth and a 17-year-old friend met up on a film set. She claimed that Bill then invited them to the Playboy Mansion. Then things took a very wrong turn.
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.
Bill Cosby was not around for the trial, but the jury was. They heard all the testimony and proof of the events that they needed to hear. Now Bill Cosby is paying in a big way.
A photo of Cosby and Huth at the Playboy Mansion was presented as evidence. Cosby’s defense insisted that he did nothing wrong and Huth was trying to “cash in.”
This was a hard time for Huth, because the thought of these events gave her flashbacks and anxiety attacks. This was noted in her lawsuit, which was filed in 2014. Now she can put this in the past.
