Cosby may no longer be in prison, but he is still paying his bills – literally.
Bill Cosby ordered Paying may have been released from prison despite his long list of charges, but the actor still pays for them – literally. A community judge recently ruled that he should pay $ 500,000 for a sexual assault he committed in 1975 against a child.
The case was opened by Judy Huth, who claims she was beaten by a 16-year-old Cosby Show star in a Playboy mansion. The trial and judge took place in Santa Monica, California. Although Huth made the decision, Cosby refused to attend the hearing.
Huth revealed that he met Cosby and said Let’s Do It Again. He later invited himself and his friend to a party at Playboy Mansion. But while there, Cosby found Huth alone in the room and broke him.
Despite Huth’s strong testimony, Cosby’s legal team has denied any sexual harassment has ever taken place between the two. His lawyer called Huth’s testimony “a complete and absolute deception.”
In the end, however, the judge ruled in Huth’s favor and fined him $ 500,000 in damages. He was not given disciplinary damages. According to Yahoo! News, although Cosby is accused of sexual misconduct by more than 60 women, this is the first case pending in court.
Cosby became part of the To Too movement when various women came forward accusing him of sexual harassment, with some claiming that the attack took place decades ago.
The actor was eventually convicted of severely beating Andrea Constand, drugging her and assaulting her in 2004. However, the sentence was overturned in 2021, when the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled that Cosby’s procedural rights were being violated, as the prosecutor. The prosecutor was bound by an earlier agreement to have Cosby charged.
While the U.S. Supreme Court applied for a reversal of the decision, refusing to do so.
With the success of Huth’s civil case, the actor is likely to pay damages to many victims if the divorce does not adhere to the rules. However, Cosby’s legal team remains convinced that he can win the case.
Cosby’s representative added that he planned to appeal the decision. “Mr. Cosby continues to maintain his chastity, ”he said. Wyatt said in a statement, “He will also fight hard against these false allegations, in order to return to the pursuit of happiness, happiness and laughter in the world.”
