Following the declaration of a mistrial in his sexual assault case, TV legend Bill Cosby now plans to hold town halls on sexual assault.
Cosby spokesman Andrew Wyatt said on “Good Day Alabama” on WBRC-TV Birmingham: “Mr. Cosby wants to get back to work. We are now planning town halls and we’re going to be coming to this city sometime in July. We’ll talk to young people, because this is bigger than Bill Cosby.”
Wyatt added: “This issue can affect any young person, especially young athletes of today, and they need to know what they’re facing when they’re hanging out and partying, when they’re doing certain things that they shouldn’t be doing. And it also affects married men.”
Ebonee Benson, a spokeswoman for Camille Cosby, appearing on the same program, added: “Laws are changing. The statute of limitations for victims of sexual assault are being extended. So this is why people need to be educated. … A brush against the shoulder, anything at this point, can be considered sexual assault and it’s a good thing to be educated about the laws.”
