In the latest surroundng Bill Cosby, prosecutors in Los Angeles have went on to dismiss two separate sexual assault allegations on him. As pointed out by CNN, the allegations fell short within the statute of limitations.
Bill Cosby won’t be charged in two cases investigated by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office, the DA announced Wednesday. According to a charge evaluation sheet, prosecutors think neither of the two allegations could have resulted in charges within the statute of limitations. The accusers, listed as Jane Does No. 1 and No. 2, had accused Cosby of sexual assault. “We are satisfied that the Los Angeles DA’s office fully and fairly evaluated all the facts and evidence, and came to the right conclusion,” said Chris Tayback, a lawyer for Cosby.Jane Doe No. 2 was identified by her lawyer as Chloe Goins, who accused the 78-year-old comedian of drugging her and sexually assaulting her at the Playboy Mansion in August 2008.Prosecutors in District Attorney Jackie Lacey’s office said the two potential criminal offenses described by Jane Doe No. 2 would be misdemeanors, and they were barred by the statute of limitations from prosecuting. The office looked at possible felonies, such as sexual battery by restraint, but said the evidence was insufficient to prove a crime was committed.
Cosby is currently out on bail following a charge in Pennsylvania he received just before the new year.
