A woman who alleges she was sexually assaulted by comedian Bill Cosby at the Playboy Mansion decades ago met with Los Angeles police detectives for nearly 90 minutes Friday, her attorney said.
Attorney Gloria Allred told reporters that her client, Judy Huth, decided to pursue a police investigation of the alleged assault after
Beck said Thursday that his detectives would investigate any allegations, even if they occurred past the legal time limit for prosecution. In a lawsuit filed Tuesday, Huth alleged Cosby assaulted her in 1974, when she was 15.
"We are here to accept Chief Beck's invitation," Allred said.
Huth stood next to Allred at a Friday evening news conference, tears brimming in her eyes. She did not speak to reporters.
Calls to Cosby's attorney, Martin D. Singer, were not immediately returned.
Cmdr. Andrew Smith, an LAPD spokesman, confirmed that detectives met with a woman who alleged she was a victim of Cosby's. He said late Friday that detectives would "do everything they can at this point in time to get to the bottom of what happened."
"It will all depend on what the victim gave us and the information she gave us and the allegations she made," he said. "But as Chief Beck said, we're committed to investigate it. So they will do everything they can to investigate this, even if it is out of statute."
