Bill Cosby Investigation Ongoing, Says LAPD Chief Charlie Beck:

Los Angeles police Chief Charlie Beck confirmed today the department has an “ongoing” investigation into Bill Cosby, but the probe is unrelated to a recently released deposition in which the comedian admitted obtaining drugs he intended to give to women with whom he wanted to have sex.

“We have an ongoing investigation that’s unrelated to the newest revelations,” Beck said.

Beck did not offer any other specifics of the probe.

In January, a woman who claimed Cosby took advantage of her at the Playboy mansion in 2008 met with Los Angeles police, contending that Cosby took her to a bedroom where she passed out and later came to with him licking her toes.

Chloe Goins was 18 at the time, according to her attorney, Spencer Kuvin.

Kuvin claimed Cosby gave Goins a drink, and the next thing she remembered was waking up naked in bed next to the comedian, who was licking her toes and masturbating.

Cosby’s attorney has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing by the comedian and has dismissed the allegations as baseless.

After Goins met with detectives in January, LAPD Cmdr. Andy Smith said the department “will take a report from anybody, and we’ll initiate an investigation on any allegations of criminal misconduct,” he said. “We’re happy to do that, and we will push forward with an investigation on that case.”

Goins is one of dozens of women across the country who have accused Cosby of drugging them and sexually assaulting them.

In mid-December, Los Angeles County prosecutors declined to file charges against Cosby over allegations that he sexually assaulted one of attorney Gloria Allred’s clients, Judy Huth. Huth claims Cosby assaulted her at the Playboy mansion in 1974 when she was 15 years old. Prosecutors said they could not pursue a case because the statute of limitations had expired.

On Monday, the Associated Press obtained a 2005 deposition transcript, in which Cosby, now 77, admitted obtaining quaaludes with the intent of giving them to women with whom he wanted to have sex.

Cosby, giving sworn testimony in a lawsuit accusing him of sexual assaulting a Temple University employee at his home in Pennsylvania in 2005, said he obtained seven quaalude prescriptions in the 1970s.

“When you got the quaaludes, was it in your mind that you were going to use these quaaludes for young women that you wanted to have sex with?” Cosby was asked.

“Yes,” Cosby replied.
