LA Police Open Probe Into Bill Cosby Sex Assault Claim

Los Angeles police are investigating a woman's claim that Bill Cosby molested her when she was 15. Police met Friday with Judy Huth, one of several women who have recently made allegations against the actor. She also filed a civil lawsuit against him this week, claiming Cosby abused her sexually after giving her alcohol in 1974. Cosby is counter-suiting Huth, saying she attempted to extort money from him. Over the past several weeks, more than a dozen women have alleged the 77-year-old actor drugged and sexually assaulted them over the span of 30 years. Cosby has never been charged with a crime, but settled a lawsuit alleging sexual assault in November 2006.
