Bill Cosby will not face sexual assault charges in Los Angeles County

District Attorney's Office cites the statute of limitations in 1965 case and strength of evidence in other

Bill Cosby will not face charges related to two sexual assault claims by women in Los Angeles County, according to multiple media reports.

The L.A. County District Attorney's Office announced Wednesday that prosecutors declined to file charges for the alleged sexual assaults, which according to the women took place in 1965 and 2008.

Prosecutors could not bring charges against Philadelphia-native Cosby in the 1965 case because it was beyond the statute of limitations, reported. Authorities also investigated the 2008 incident, which allegedly occurred during an event at the Playboy Mansion, but prosecutors again declined to bring charges.

In the latter alleged incident, Chloe Goins, now 24, claims Cosby gave her a drink that caused her to black out, according to the Los Angeles Times. She awoke to find herself naked on a bed. Cosby allegedly was biting her toes with his pants at his ankles.

The newspaper reported that prosecutors did not find sufficient evidence to prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt.

The 1965 case involved a woman who claims Cosby raped her when she was 17.

The LA County decision comes less than one week after Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele charged Cosby for allegedly sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his Cheltenham Township mansion in 2004. Constand, a former basketball team manager at Temple University, settled a civil case against Cosby in 2006.

Cosby was charged days before the statute of limitations was set to run out on the case. That has been the scenario for many of the 50 women who have accused Cosby of sexual assault.

Cosby has denied wrongdoing in any of the cases.
