At a news conference in Los Angeles, organized by lawyer Gloria Allred, three more women have come forward to accuse comedian Bill Cosby of drugging or assaulting them. The new accusations come a week before Cosby is set to testify under oath in the case of Judy Huth, whom he allegedly assaulted in 1974, when she was 15 years old. The three women are Lisa Christie, a former model and Mrs America, who worked with him on Jell-O commercials and the Cosby Show; Pamela Abeyta, who met Cosby in Vegas in 1979, and Sharon Van Ert, who met him while working as a waitress in California in 1976. While it’s too late for them to take action because of the statute of limitations expiring, Allred said these women came forward because “they want Mr. Cosby to be accountable for what they believe was his misconduct towards them.”
