Bill Cosby might have gotten off scott free after his verdict was overturned last year. But, the former actor will now pay damages to the now 64-year-old Judy Huth.
Judy Huth wins sexual assault case
Thus far, Judy Huth filed a case against Bill Cobsy in 2014 but nothing came of her case as the actor was facing charges on sexual assult of more than 50 woman over a few decades of his acting career.
Last year, Bill Cosby was released from prison after his verdict was overturned. The former actor has since been living his life outside prison bars.
According to The Guardian, Bill Cosby will need to pay Judy Huth $500 000 in damages. The woman who was then 16-years-old had hiped to receive $8 million in damages.
Bill Cosby to pay $500 000 in damages
To date, Bill Cosby did not physically appear in court but was seen on video denying the allegations of sexual assault. He has so far denied knowing Judy Huth as well as knowing that she was a minor at the time.
Back in 1975, Judy Huth recalled that she and a friend had met Bill Cosby at a park. The actor then invited them over to the playboy mansion in which he forced her to participate in sexual activity.
Right now, Bill Cosby has maintained his innocence by sharing that he does not know Judy Huth. He also consistently denied that he did not know that she was a minor back in 1975.
According to previous reports, Judy Huth first claimed that the sexual abuse took place in 1974 but later confirmed that the timing was wrong and that it took place in 1975.
Presently, Cosby’s attorney feels that this is a huge win as the victim will no longer receive the $8 million she initially seeked.
“This is a huge victory and the Cosbys are so happy with the representation of Jennifer Bonjean. Allred was trying to get $8m. They did not get punitive damages. That is a huge win.”
