Los Angeles prosecutors said on Tuesday that Bill Cosby will not be charged for a crime stemming from an alleged sexual assault that took place at the Playboy Mansion in 1974, the Los Angeles Timesreports.
Judy Huth claims that she and a friend, who was 16 years old at the time, met Cosby at the Playboy Mansion that year and that Cosby sexually assaulted her later that night after giving her alcohol.
However, the district attorney said that the case was well past the statute of limitations, which was three years at the time of the alleged crime. 1974 law would also dictate that the crime would only be a misdemeanor.
"Therefore, prosecution today for any potential felony sex crime from 1974 would also be barred," the D.A. said in a court document.
Cosby has been accused by more than 20 women of sexual assault over the past several decades since October.
