I honestly don't know about the molestation/rape charges. It could be that a few are legit, but the rest just see a star going down and want to jump on the $$$ bandwagon. It's up to a jury to decide that. Rape charges will be a stone around the neck, even if he's innocent.
It’s been a slow death for the legend of Bill Cosby. As allegations of sexual assault — decades-old claims that are now being treated with appropriate gravity — envelop the 77-year-old Cosby, it’s easy to forget it’s been nearly 20 years since the Autumn Jackson trial showed us that America’s Dad might have been a lot more like a deadbeat than you realized. That was before social media, so her attempt to extort money from Cosby so she wouldn't tell the world about his affair with her mother (and her claim that he was her father) vanished from mainstream memory.
Anyone who pretends to be incapable of believing he could do anything wrong is lying. Even if he wasn’t Jackson’s father, Cosby must've noticed the smoke from the fire that had been set to his pristine image. But the only person striking a match in public was a woman who seemed unhinged, and that was enough for many to ignore something few wished to consider: the possibility that Bill Cosby was a fraud.

Well said. I find the Cosby case similar to the Saville Case because both have predators who committed their crimes while being the nr1 TV-STAR of their country and nobody would believe their victims when they tried to speak up against them. One of the women tried to tell people what Cosby did 30 years ago but no one believed her. With Saville..girls were locked up in psych-wards for trying to take him to the court. Because obviously, it was more likely these poor girls were insane than these two guys were rapists.
Bill Cosby’s latest accuser says that the comedian molested her when she was 15 years old at the Playboy Mansion. Judy Huth says the incident occurred back in 1974 and she’s finally filing suit against Cosby in Los Angeles seeking damages.
At a Wednesday press conference in Los Angeles, three more women came forward to accuse Bill Cosby of assault while attorney Gloria Allred challenged the comedian to waive the statue of limitations and stand trial. Allred proposed that alternatively he could establish a $100 million dollar fund to settle with the victims, with retired judges ruling on the awards.
The ever-growing list of Bill Cosby accusers has just grown by one, with model Beverly Johnson telling Vanity Fair that Cosby drugged her in the mid-80s.
According to Johnson, the incident occurred during an audition for "The Cosby Show."
"Cosby said he wanted to see how I handled various scenes, so he suggested that I pretend to be drunk." Johnson recalled. "As I readied myself to be the best drunk I could be, he offered me a cappuccino from the espresso machine.

She's a real abuse magnet. Apparently she was also abused by Chris Noth and pro golfer Mark Anthony Burk.
Johnson declined to be interviewed, but her lawyer, Hans Fleischner, said, “I don’t think these domestic violence issues are a first for Mr. Burk. He was the subject of multiple restraining orders in Los Angeles dating back to 2004.

I've been abused by three different men. So, I guess I'm an "abuse magnet", too...
