In this week’s Justice is Served, we discuss the latest rape allegation made against Bill Cosby, this time by a woman who says she was drugged by Cosby at a party at the Playboy mansion when she was 18 years old and woke up to him masturbating over her and sucking her toes. Chloe Goins and her attorney held a press conference in front of the LAPD headquarters last week, stating her case, if filed, would fall within the statue of limitations for rape cases in California since it happened six years ago. The LAPD says it is now investigating her claims and will decided whether to recommend the DA file charges. However, Cosby’s attorney says his client was not even in town the night of the party and that Goins’ claim is meritless. Meanwhile, Cosby performed in Denver over the weekend to an applauding audience, despite protests outside.
We also discuss the discovery of a photographic lineup of mugshots of young black men used for sniper target practice by South Florida cops, the likelihood of success of a special appeal for the defendant profiled in the podcast Serial, the latest rape allegations against an Uber driver and what the company should do to protect its’ customers, and the restoration of 111 of Joe Paterno’s football wins by the NCAA after the organization revoked the wins in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal.
