Trial Date Set For New Bill Cosby Sexual Assault Case

Bill Cosby’s next sexual assault trial will take place in California sometime in June 2018.

In a report from Reuters, Cosby’s California trial will focus on accusations made against him by Judy Huth. Huth has accused Cosby of sexually assaulting her in a bedroom at the Playboy Mansion around 1974 when she was 15. The announcement comes only a week after Cosby’s sexual assault case in Pennsylvania ended in a mistrial. After six days of deliberation, seven men and five women were unable to give a unanimous verdict on any of the three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault charges on Cosby.

Cosby is also already scheduled for another civil trial in June 2018 in a lawsuit filed by Chloe Goins, a former model who has accused Cosby of drugging and sexually assaulting her at the Playboy Mansion in 2008.

Cosby recently came under fire after the news was announced that he would be embarking on a sexual assault education tour. At first, it seemed as if the tour would not actually focus on sexual assault awareness and prevention but Cosby, who would primarily advise “athletes” and “married men” on how to handle allegations of sexual assault.

However, Cosby’s PR team has since retracted their comments about the forthcoming “town hall” tour, saying that it will instead be focused on restoring Cosby’s legacy.
