The Cos Won’t Face Criminal Charges In Los Angeles Sexual Assault Cases

Bill Cosby Won’t Face Criminal Charges In Los Angeles Sexual Assault Cases – The Wrap

.

.
Whatever the numerous legal hurdles facing Bill Cosby, criminal charges from the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office aren’t among them.

Cosby won’t face charges stemming from two of his accusers, the DA’s office announced Wednesday.

In the case of the first sexual assault allegation, the DA’s office cited the statute of limitations in its decision not to pursue charges. That accuser claimed that Cosby took her to a Hollywood jazz club in 1965 when she was 17 years old and bought her alcoholic beverages. The accuser had claimed that Cosby then took her to a private residence and forced her to have intercourse with him.

The second accuser claimed that she attended a party with a friend at the Playboy mansion in 2008 when she was 18 and was introduced to Cosby. She alleged that she began to feel dizzy and sick after drinking an alcoholic beverage that Cosby had given her. According to her accusations, Cosby then led her to an upstairs bedroom. When she awoke, the accuser claimed, her “clothes were off, her breasts felt moist, as if they were licked, and the suspect was at the foot of the bed biting her toe. He appeared to be masturbating,” according to a charge evaluation worksheet issued by the district attorney’s office on Wednesday.

In that case, the district attorney’s office said, the unnamed accuser initially claimed that the incident took place at a Midsummer Night’s Dream Party held at the mansion in August 2008. However, she later stated that she was unsure if the incident occurred at that event or another event held at the mansion that summer.

Investigators reviewed video footage from the Midsummer Night’s Dream Party, none of which showed Cosby or the accuser present. They also obtained evidence that Cosby was in New York at the time of the party.

A subsequent review of guest lists from events at the mansion in 2008 found that Cosby was only listed as a guest at one event that year, in February.

While some of the second accuser’s accusations – both were listed as Jane Does by the district attorney’s office – were barred by the statute of limitations, the DA determined that, other potential charges that could be filed, “there is insufficient evidence to prove these crimes beyond a reasonable doubt.”

Cosby has been accused of rape or sexual assault by dozens of women. His former attorney, Martin Singer, has denied the allegations in the past.

The former “Cosby Show” star has been slapped with multiple lawsuits in the wake of the scandal. He has also been charged with felony sexual assault stemming from accusations made by former Temple University employee Andrea Constand, who alleges that Cosby assaulted her in 2004.

Constand had previously sued Cosby over the alleged attack, but later settled with him.

In a statement, attorney Gloria Allred, who represents the first accuser, said that he client is “very disappointed” in the district attorney’s decision.

Allred added that she is working to eliminate the statute of limitations in California for cases involving rape and sexual assault.

Read Allred’s full statement below.
.

Today the LA County District Attorney declined to file charges against Bill Cosby as a result of allegations made against him by two Jane Does. I represent one of women who alleges that she was victimized in 1965 when she was 17 years old.

My client is very disappointed in the District Attorney’s decision which appears to have been based on California’s statute of limitations and which is the stated reason that the District Attorney did not file criminal charges. It is very difficult for a person who alleges that she is a victim to understand that there are arbitrary time periods set by law and that if allegations are not reported within that time period that it will be too late for a prosecutor to pursue them even if a prosecutor believes that there is sufficient evidence to prove that case beyond a reasonable doubt.

We are, however, working to change the law in California to eliminate the statute of limitations for criminal cases involving rape and sexual assault. I am working with California Senator Connie Leyva to change the law in this state.

Although if signed into law this proposed new legislation will not be retroactive and is not likely to cover allegations against Mr. Cosby, it will be of benefit to others in the future who allege that they are victims of rape. Passage of that bill will be a positive step forward for victims of sexual predators.

Douchebag Rapper Arrested After Punching Girl In The Face During Concert (Video)

Black Rapper Arrested After What He Did To A Woman On Stage – Conservative Tribune

.

.
Long-time rapper Afroman, best known for his 2001 hit “Because I Got High,” committed a shockingly out-of-character move in front of a crowd he played recently in Biloxi, Miss.

Joseph Edgar Foreman, Afroman’s legal name, was skillfully picking his guitar in front a relatively quiet, smaller crowd when suddenly a female fan appeared on stage and began dancing behind him. It was certainly nothing outrageous and the video clearly shows that he was aware that someone was behind him dancing.

As the woman changed her position on the stage ever-so-slightly, Foreman, out of nowhere, laid a devastating right hook into her face, immediately knocking her to the ground.

.

.
The punch from the large man could have easily knocked out a grown man – it’s a wonder she wasn’t seriously injured by the vicious blow.

In the video, you can see that the woman temporarily lay on the ground crying before another man, presumably a friend, got on the stage to check her condition.

As he made his way onto the stage, Foreman visibly gave him some kind of stern warning because the man briefly put his hand up and signaled that he didn’t want any trouble.

After striking the woman directly in the face, the 40-year-old singer continued playing his guitar as if nothing happened (H/T Breitbart).

To call the incident bizarre would be a massive understatement.

After police were called, Foreman continued to play until they finally arrived and arrested him on assault charges outside of the venue.

Foreman claims he didn’t realize that the person on stage was a woman.

Right, because it’s cool to punch men without provocation. Let us know how that works out for you in front of the judge.

Share this on Facebook and Twitter if you think this idiot should be given the harshest penalties afforded by law for striking the woman in the face.

Inmate Caught On Camera Punching Himself In The Face 45 Times Before Filing Abuse Complaint Against Cops – Daily Mail

Oregon authorities say a suspect brought in for questioning later punched himself in the face and then filed an assault complaint against detectives.

But unfortunately for the suspect, a video recorder was running in a holding room where he’d been left after questioning in Eugene.

The sheriff’s department said Tuesday the footage shows 33-year-old Aleksander Robin Tomaszewski hitting himself, inflicting two black eyes.

In total, the video shows Tomaszewski hitting himself 45 times.

Authorities say the Lucerne, California, man was brought in for questioning on January 9 on an unrelated case that’s still under investigation.

According to The Register Guard, the charges included stalking and first-degree sexual abuse.

He was separately charged with initiating a false report and attempted coercion, and found guilty last week.

He was sentenced to 20 days in jail, 36 months probation and fined $500 for attempted coercion.

For initiating a false report, he received a $100 fine and 20 additional days in jail.

Fall Down, Go Boom: Harry Reid Breaks His Own Face In Exercise Accident

Reid Breaks Ribs, Face Bones In Fall- The Hill

Democratic leader Sen. Harry Reid broke a “number” of ribs and bones in his face during an accident on Thursday at his home, according to his office.

.

.
The Nevada senator, 75, was using an exercise machine on New Year’s Day when the equipment broke, “causing him to fall,” his office said.

The accident occurred at Reid’s home in Henderson, Nev., and he was taken to a hospital there and then to University Medical Center in Las Vegas. He was kept in the hospital overnight “as a precaution.”

A spokeswoman said Reid was discharged from the hospital on Friday.

“He sends his thanks to all those who sent warm wishes and is ready to get back to work,” said Kristen Orthman, Reid’s deputy communications director.

Reid also suffered an exercise accident in 2011, when he slipped and fell, putting his arm in a sling and giving him a black eye.

Despite his injures, Reid plans to return to Washington for the new session of Congress that begins next week. The Senate will reconvene Tuesday under Republican control, pushing Reid into the role of minority leader.

President Obama phoned Reid from Hawaii on Friday “to wish him a full and speedy recovery,” according to the White House.

“The president was glad to hear the leader is doing well, and will be back in Washington this weekend,” said White House spokesman Eric Schultz.

Reid will be returning to work after a tumultuous 2014 that saw Democrats lose the Senate in a midterm election drubbing that gave Republicans a 54-46 majority.

Democrats stuck with Reid as leader despite the losses, as no challenger emerged in the caucus for his leadership spot despite murmurs of discontent. Several centrist senators voted against him for leader, however.

“I heard the voters of Missouri loud and clear,” Sen Claire McCaskill, who faces reelection in 2016, told the Kansas City Star in saying she would not back Reid for leader. “They want change in Washington. Common sense tells me that begins with changes in leadership.”

Back home in Nevada, Reid is facing what is sure to be a tough reelection race in 2016.

While Reid survived a battle in 2010 against Republican Sharron Angle, Nevada Republicans are looking for a stronger candidate in 2016, and have their sights on Gov. Brian Sandoval, who won reelection in November with 70 percent of the vote.

“I don’t care. If Brian wants to run for the Senate, let him,” Reid said in August. “I don’t care. We get along well. But you know, I understand how things work. But that is up to him.”

Senator Mike Lee: Defund Obamacare Or Face Government Shutdown

Sen. Mike Lee Throws Down Gauntlet: Defund Obamacare Or Face Government Shutdown – Independent Journal Review

Senator Mike Lee issued a scathing condemnation of the Obama administration’s decision to suspend the employer mandate, while leaving the individual mandate in force.

.

The Constitutional Attorney slammed the Democrats for promoting the interests of Big Business, while discriminating against the ‘little guy.’ Mike Lee’s diatribe would surely make moderate Democrats’ heads spin if they saw it:

“It’s fundamentally unfair to adopt an employer mandate and an individual mandate and say, ‘I’m going to enforce this against hard-working individual Americans, but the government is going to look the other way when it comes to wealthy, corporate fat cats”…

“If congressional Democrats want to oppose appropriations bills without additional ObamaCare funding, shut down the government, and side with the president and Big Business against the American people, then it’s their choice. But three years in, even the president himself has now admitted that ObamaCare won’t work. The only responsible choice now is to protect the country from ObamaCare’s looming disaster, start over and finally begin work on real health care reform.”

Political observers for many years have wondered why the Republican Party hasn’t invoked the language of the left to tarnish the undisputed party of Big Government and the Establishment – the Democrat Party. But the new wave of conservatarians in the Senate and House, who are opposed to both Big Government and Crony Corporatism, may do just that.

Senator Lee blasted the ‘constitutional scholar’ Barack Obama for ignoring the separation of powers principle of the Constitution he swore an oath to ‘preserve, protect, and defend.’ The Executive Branch does not have the discretion to enforce duly passed laws, and thus President Obama cannot legally and arbitrarily decide to suspend the employer mandate.

Mike Lee also stood on principle and challenged his own party to defend funding the ObamaCare debacle:

“Our current CR expires at the end of September, and, so, every Republican is going to have a chance to weigh in on whether or not they’re okay with ObamaCare – whether or not they’re willing to fund it,” Lee explained. “I think any Republican who agrees to fund ObamaCare this time around is going to have a hard time explaining that to voters.”

Elections in 2014 will provide an opportunity for Republican voters to decide if they want more Senators like Mike Lee or more ‘work across the aisle’ guys like John McCain.
