LA police investigating Cosby sexual assault claims
The LAPD says it has one open investigation it’s working on that may have multiple accusations.
NEW YORK - The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) says it's conducting at least one current criminal investigation into allegations of sexual assault against Bill Cosby.
This comes on the heels of a new revelation that the 77-year-old comedic had said during a 2005 deposition that he obtained Quaaludes with the intent of giving them to women with whom he wanted to have sex.
The LAPD says it has one open investigation it's working on that may have multiple accusations.
Because the case is ongoing few details have been offered, but the department says it's willing to investigate any sexual assault accusations made against Cosby even ones past the statute of limitations.
Cosby has never been charged because most of the alleged incidents took place decades ago.
HOLLYWOOD SPLIT ON LATEST COSBY REVELATIONS
Hollywood has been voicing its views on the recently revealed admission in 2005 by Cosby that he had got prescription sedatives to give to women before having sex with them.
Director Judd Apatow wants Cosby's onscreen wife and his real life one to stand with the two dozen women who have accused the comedian of sexual assault.
Apatow echoes a sentiment shared by many, telling Esquire magazine, the public shouldn't have needed the newly-released documents to believe the 40 women who already came forward with stories of sexual assault.
Singer Jill Scott, who calls the comedian a mentor, said she was wrong to have publicly defended him last year, when more allegations started to surface.
Whoopi Goldberg meanwhile backs the comedian, saying he is innocent until proven guilty.
