Bill Cosby was found by a Los Angeles County civil jury that he sexually abused a 16-year-old girl at the Playboy Mansion in 1975.

Per the Associated Press (AP), “The Los Angeles County jury delivered the verdict in favor of Judy Huth, who is now 64, and awarded her $500,000. Jurors found that Cosby intentionally caused harmful sexual contact with Huth, that he reasonably believed she was under 18, and that his conduct was driven by unnatural or abnormal sexual interest in a minor.”

The AP added, “[The decision] comes nearly a year after his Pennsylvania criminal conviction for sexual assault was thrown out and he was freed from prison. Huth’s lawsuit was one of the last remaining legal claims against him after his insurer settled many others against his will.”

Cosby, now 84, had only served two out of the 3-10-year prison sentence he initially received. While he did not attend Huth’s trial, he denied he sexually abused Huth in a 2015 video deposition that was played for the jury.
