BILL COSBY ACCUSER TESTIFIES BEFORE NEVADA LAWMAKERS TO ELIMINATE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS IN RAPE CASES
An alleged victim of Bill Cosby testified before lawmakers on Friday in support of aNevada bill that will eliminate the statute of limitations in rape cases. According to the LasVegas Review-Journal, Lise-Lotte Lublin did not mention Cosby by name; however, her testimony left no question she wasspeaking of the comedian. Lublin detailed to lawmakers the sexual assault she alleges happened 25 years ago. Although the accuser says itis too late for her to seek justice, she wants other victims to have the opportunity. I will neversee justice. And I didn't do anything wrong. If I had had an idea of what had happened, I wouldhave filed a report 25 years ago. I now understand that the law prevents the victim in mycircumstances from seeking justice. Why would the law want to prevent me from seeking justice? Sowho is protecting the victim? The law is on his side. Over 30 women have come forward since November to accuse Bill Cosby of drugging and sexual assault. The majority ofthese allegations fall outside of the time required to report a sexual assault, so Cosby will notface criminal charges. Three of the women filed a defamation lawsuit against the comedian. Cosby's attorneys recently asked the judge in the case to throw the suit out as their client didnothing wrong when denying the sexual assault allegations lodged against him by the women involved.
