Is Bill Cosby legally at risk?
Lots of allegations are swirling around about Bill Cosby. It is disappointing to say the least, but life disappoints you. People sometimes are not what they appear. As a lawyer, I look for the legal angle as many things are legal--often legal and political. From what I understand most of these alleged incidents occurred outside of the statutory period, and this likely means they are time barred by the statute of limitations. Cosby and his lawyers are smart to say NOTHING. Criminal liability, however, is another issue because some states do not have statutes of limitations for felonies. Depending upon the state where the alleged criminal act(s) took place, there could be criminal liability.
