More than 50 women have come forward with decades-old allegations of sexual abuse and misconduct against The Cosby Show star in the past year, but the statute of limitations has run out on many of the claims, which means none of the accusers can take the comic to court for his past alleged bad behaviour.

Cosby has never been charged with any crime relating to the allegations, but new evidence from a reported incident seven years ago could land him in big trouble.

Los Angeles County prosecutors are currently reviewing the LAPD's new investigation, which was presented to the District Attorney on Thursday (01Oct15).

The case involves model Chloe Goins, who claims Cosby drugged and assaulted her at a Playboy Mansion party when she was 18. According to ABC News, Goins met with detectives in January (15) to speak about the case, but Cosby's lawyer denied her claims, insisting the comedian was not even in Los Angeles at the time of the alleged incident.

It is unclear what charges, if any, will be made against Cosby.

The District Attorney's officials previously dismissed a case against Cosby from Judy Huth, who accused him of sexually abusing her in 1974 at the age of 15, during another party at the Playboy Mansion. Her claims were rejected for a criminal case because the alleged incident happened before 1988 and the statute of limitations had expired.

However, Cosby is set to sit for a deposition in that case on 9 October (15).

And while the sex scandal rumbles on, Cosby continues to lose honorary degrees and endorsements - on Wednesday officials at the University of San Francisco revoked an honorary degree they awarded to Cosby in 2012. They acknowledged his alleged behaviour is "inconsistent with criteria for a USF honorary degree".

The move by USF bosses comes in the same week university officials at Brown, Fordham, and Marquette also rescinded honorary degrees presented to Cosby.
