Asks Cosby to face his accusers

4 Dec, 2014

Attorney Allred asks that Cosby either waive the statute of limitations on sexual assault allegations and stand trial or set aside 100 million in a fund for his alleged victims, during a press conference in Los Angeles. Allred is joined by three of Cosby’s accusers at the press conference, Beth Ferrier, Helen Hayes, and Chelan.

It could be advantageous for Mr. Cosby to give up the statute of limitations because there is a huge cloud on his reputation and legacy. Many of those alleged victims contacted me to determine if they had any legal rights that they could assert against Mr. Cosby. Unfortunately, with a rare exception, I had to inform these women that it was too late for them to file a lawsuit against Mr. Cosby because of the statute of limitations. If Mr. Cosby believes all the women are being untruthful, then this is his opportunity to prove it. What could be fairer than that?
