(London Guardian) Three more women came forward on Wednesday to accuse the veteran comedian Bill Cosby of sexually assaulting them decades ago, allegations that come a week before Cosby is scheduled to give a sworn deposition in a separate sexual assault lawsuit.
Sharon Van Ert, Pamela Abeyta and Lisa Christie appeared at a Los Angeles news conference and alleged that Cosby had assaulted them. They were teary-eyed as they gave their accounts.
The news conference with the celebrity attorney Gloria Allred came a week before a deposition that Cosby, 78, has been ordered to give in a lawsuit brought by another Allred client, a woman who accuses the comedian of sexually abusing her at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles when she was 15.
