FCosby Convicted Of Sexually Assaulting a Teenager in 1975
The jury at a civil trial in California on Tuesday found that actor Bill Cosby sexually abused a 16-year-old girl at the Playboy Mansion in 1975.
The Los Angeles County jury delivered the verdict in favor of Judy Huth, who is now 64, and awarded her $500,000
Jurors found that Cosby intentionally caused harmful sexual contact with Huth
Cosby did not attend the trial or testify in person, but short clips from 2015 video deposition were played for jurors.
Cosby spokesman Andrew Wyatt said they would appeal the verdict and he claimed the defense won because Huth didn't win punitive damages.
Cosby's attorneys agreed that Cosby met Huth and her high school friend on a Southern California film set in April of 1975
Huth's friend Donna Samuelson, a key witness, took photos at the mansion of Huth and Cosby, which loomed large at the trial.
