Prosecutors indifferent to second Bill Cosby accuser
UPI News Service, 02/10/2005
Philadelphia area prosecutors apparently are discounting a California lawyer's claim that comedian Bill Cosby doped and groped her 30 years ago.
A Montgomery County, Pa., prosecutor said Tamara Green's accusation that Cosby gave her two pills then fondled her was not likely to get much legal traction, the New York Daily News reported Thursday.
Green, a former model, went public after learning Cosby, 67, was under investigation for allegedly plying 31-year-old Andrea Constand with a "herbal medication" and molesting her a year ago.
Montgomery County officials were mulling charges against Cosby in the Constand matter.
Cosby, who says his encounter with Constand was consensual, says he never even knew Green.
Meanwhile, Cosby aides have begun circulating negative reports on Green. David Walk, a Cosby lawyer, e-mailed reporters and producers a copy of a New York Post story from Wednesday that discussed a 13-count state bar complaint filed against Green last March, the Philadelphia Daily News said Thursday.
A Cosby representative also gave names and numbers of two California lawyers whom he said had damaging information about Green.
