The LAPD Is Launching An Investigation Into The Allegations Against Bill Cosby

Judy Huth alleges that the comedian assaulted her at the Playboy Mansion when she was underage.

Yesterday (December 5), a woman who alleges that Bill Cosby raped her in 1974 met with the Los Angeles Police Department for the first time since accusations against the comedian began snowballing earlier this year.

The woman, Judy Huth, has also filed a civil suit against Cosby. She alleges that he forced her to perform a sex act at the Playboy Mansion when she was underage. She met with detectives after LAPD Chief Charlie Beck announced Thursday (December 4) that the department would look into any claims brought forward against Cosby, even if they were outside the statute of limitations that prevents legal action after a certain amount of time passes since the alleged crime.

An LAPD spokesman told the LA Times that police would "do everything they can at this point in time to get to the bottom of what happened."

The 77-year-old actor, best known for playing Dr. Huxtable on "The Cosby Show," continues to deny allegations of sexual assault. His attorney, Martin Singer, called Huth's lawsuit "meritless and unsupported." Cosby has not been charged with a crime.
