Recent allegations against Bill Cosby fall square within the statute of limitations

It seems there’s a good chance that Bill Cosby could finally face charges related to sexual assault. Sources say that model Chloe Goins is expected to file charges with the Los Angeles Police Department for an assault she alleges occurred at the Playboy mansion in 2008.

Making these recent allegations unique is that they allegedly occurred within the statute of limitations for rape cases, which currently stands at 10 years in California.

Speaking to the Daily Mail last month, Goins said that Cosby gave her a mixed drink, and then helped her to a bathroom to lay down when she began feeling dizzy.

“I came to and remember seeing this big man crouched over me,” Goins said. “It was Bill Cosby and he was at my feet, kind of licking and kissing them and I think he bit my toe as that’s what woke me up. I kind of thank God for that because that’s what woke me up and I came to.”

“I was shocked, I said, ‘hey, what’s going on’, he didn’t really say anything, didn’t explain anything or give a reason,” she added. “He jumped up, pulled his pants back up quickly and left. He had seen that I was alert and bolted out of there, I was left in the room by myself.”

She claimed that she didn’t go to the police at the time out of fear that her career would be damaged.

“This isn’t something I really wanted out there about myself, but I saw all the women who had come forward, over 20 women and it grossed me out. I feel he needs to pay for it, he deserves to pay for it,” she said. “Unlike many of those women, I don’t think he raped me so I am one of the lucky ones, but at the same time it was a fucked up situation.”
