Comedian Bill Cosby has been pronounced guilty for sexual assault. He was found guilty for sexually harrassing a woman at the Playboy Mansion in 1975 when she was a teenager.

 

A California jury reached the verdict on Tuesday and awarded the victim, Judy Huth $500,000 in damages for emotional distress she said she suffered years later.

 

This is coming after multiple allegations against Cosby from other women who  stirred up memories of her interaction with the comedian. Also more than 50 women accused him of sexual assaults over nearly five decades.

Huth, who is now 64, testified that the comedian invited her and a friend to the Playboy Mansion when she was 16, and he was 37, and forced her to masturbate his penis, she told the jury.

 

The civil trial in California took place almost a year after Cosby was freed from prison when Pennsylvania’s highest court threw out his sexual assault conviction in a different criminal case there.
