Civil trial jury finds Bill Cosby sexually abused teenage girl in 1975

A Santa Monica civil trial jury on Tuesday found Bill Cosby sexually abused a teenage girl at the Playboy Mansion in 1975 and awarded her $500,000.

The panel’s decision in favor of Judy Huth was read at about 3:30 p.m. local time after the jury had been deadlocked earlier in the afternoon.

Huth, now 64, accused Cosby of forcing her to perform a sex act on him at the mansion when she was just 16 years old.

The reviled former icon, once known as “America’s Dad,” didn’t testify or appear in Los Angeles County Court during the trial but had denied sexual contact with Huth in a sworn deposition in 2015 that was played for jurors.

Cosby’s spokesperson, Andrew Wyatt, told The Post that the comedian plans to file an appeal on the $500,000 judgement.

“Mr. Cosby continues to maintain his innocence and will vigorously fight these false accusations, so that he can get back to bringing the pursuit of happiness, joy and laughter to the world,” Wyatt said in a statement.
