Cosby says has no plans for 'sexual assault tour'

Agrusa spoke to reporters after a hearing in Santa Monica involving Judith Huth, who has accused Cosby of forcing her to perform a sex act at the Playboy Mansion sometime around 1974, when she was 15. He then proceeded to sexually molest her by attempting to put his hand down her trousers, and then taking her hand in his hand and performing a sex act on himself without her consent.

The 79-year-old's lawyers twice requested to have the case dismissed, but the motions were rejected last year (16). The star's sex assault trial ended with a hung jury and prosecutors are determined to retry him.

In May, a Pennsylvania judge agreed to hear a case that accused Cosby of three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault.

Agrusa's rejection of the town halls came in comments after a hearing in a civil case against Cosby in Santa Monica, California on Tuesday.

"He would never do anything that undermined the importance of this issue". Cosby denied the allegation, stating that they had a sexual encounter that was consensual. His team has now reversed course on this, saying that Cosby would never discuss sexual assault and was not planning to do so on his tour.

Bill Cosby arrives for his sexual assault trial at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pa., June 17, 2017.

As Radar reported, the former director of women's basketball at Temple University alleges that Cosby, who turns 80 on July 12, drugged and took advantage of her while she was impaired.

Now Angela C. Agrusa, a lawyer who helped represent him at his trial on sexual assault charges earlier this month, has tamped down expectations that Mr. Cosby will be embarking on such a tour anytime soon.

Just days after a jury in Pennsylvania deadlocked on sexual-assault charges against Cosby stemming from a 2004 incident, representatives of the actor-comedian-author said he "wants to get back to work" and disclosed plans for town hall meetings educating people about sexual-assault laws.

Cosby sat for a more than seven-hour deposition in the Huth case last October 9. "There's a higher burden of proof in a criminal case than there is in a civil case", Allred said.

According to Deadline, due to Huth's young age during the time that the sexual assault was alleged to have occurred, Judy was able to file her claims despite the passage of the statute of limitations because she was a minor in 1974.
