In the wake of former actor and comedian, Bill Cosby being sentenced to up to 10 years in a state prison for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand, there are still many unanswered questions for many of the other alleged victims.
Personal Injury Trial Attorney Spencer T. Kuvin, Esq. from the Law Offices of Craig Goldenfarb, in West Palm Beach Florida, represents Chloe Goins, a former model who is also legally pursuing Cosby for an assault that allegedly took place at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles sometime around 2010.
Commenting on the current sentencing with CBS12 News, Mr. Kuvin stated, “In the grand scheme of things, we would’ve loved for him to be put behind bars for 10 years,”. He went on to elaborate on how he could now continue to move forward with his civil case, now that the criminal sentencing has concluded.
“I certainly think that the sentence today has a significant effect on ultimately our civil case going forward,” Mr. Kuvin said.
Chloe Goins, claims that at age 17 while she was at the Playboy mansion, Cosby laced her drink with some unknown drug and sexually molested her. Mr. Kuvin, continued to explain that she, Ms Goins, was looking forward to today’s sentencing result and was obviously pleased that justice was served, when mere house arrest and avoiding prison time were real possible outcomes for Cosby.
“Now I believe we would be able to go to a jury out in California and say to them this is a convicted sexual predator. That, I think, significantly helps our case,” Mr. Kuvin says.
Cosby, who was convicted in April of aggravated indecent assault will be classified as a “sexually violent predator,” which requires a lifetime registration and mandatory counseling. Goins is one of at least 44 other women who claim Cosby assaulted them.
Kuvin hopes the Goins’ case against Cosby will go to trial sometime next year, however even if it takes longer or if Cosby were to pass away in custody, she could still potentially collect money from the Cosby estate.
