Bill Cosby to face a civil trial for alleged sexual assault next year

Comedian Bill Cosby will face a civil trial next year for allegedly sexually assaulting a 15-year-old at the Playboy Mansion more than four decades ago.

Judy Huth has accused Cosby, 79, of giving her alcohol and then sexually abusing her in 1974 at the Los Angeles mansion.

Cosby is already scheduled to face a separate civil trial in June next year over a lawsuit filed by Chloe Goins, a former model who has accused Cosby of drugging and sexually assaulting her at the mansion in 2008.


A criminal trial was held less than two weeks ago in Los Angeles over a sexual assault in Pennsylvania.

It ended in a mistrial, with the jury unable to reach a unanimous verdict.

Cosby’s reputation has been destroyed by sexual assault allegations from approximately 60 women.
