Jury finds Bill Cosby sexually abused teenage girl at Playboy mansion in 1975
The Independent says A CALIFORNIAN jury has found that Bill Cosby sexually abused a 16-year-old girl at the Playboy mansion in 1975 and awarded her $500,000 (£408,425).
The jury in Santa Monica sided with Judy Huth, who is now 64, and delivered another major courtroom defeat to the former Cosby Show star, who has been sued by a string of women.
The verdict comes a year after Cosby, 84, had a conviction for sexual assault thrown out by Pennsylvania’s top court and was freed from prison.
The jury had reached its verdict on almost all questions on Friday, but one member could not be present this week and the jury had to start their deliberations again on Monday with an alternative juror.
