Cosby has been accused of assault by dozens of women and many have initiated legal action against him. He was jailed in Pennsylvania in 2018 but was set free last year after his conviction was overturned on a technicality.
Cosby denied any wrongdoing and his lawyers tried their best to bail him out. The case was not prosecuted criminally as Huth spoke to the police after the period of limitation was over. She however was able to file a civil suit under a California law that allowed adults to pursue cases where they were victims of sexual abuse as minors and repressed what happened to them for years.
