The LAPD says it will investigate any allegations brought forth against Cosby, even if they occurred before the statute of limitations for prosecution ended. Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck says that although the investigation couldn’t be used in a criminal trial, it could be helpful in a civil suit.
We don’t turn people away because things are out of statute. You come to us, especially with a sexual allegation, we will work with you. We address these things seriously, and it’s not just because it’s Mr. Cosby.
