Alleged Cosby victim testifies before Nevada Legislature

    A woman who says she was victimized by Bill Cosby is asking Nevada lawmakers to remove the statute of limitations on reporting sexual assault.

    Lise-Lotte Lublin said Friday that a Nevada law requiring reports be filed within four years of the incident prevents her from pursuing a case against the comedian.

    Lublin says she lost consciousness after Cosby gave her two alcoholic drinks at the Las Vegas Hilton in 1989. She said she went public about the incident after hearing numerous similar allegations.

    Cosby’s publicist did not immediately respond to an email message seeking comment. Cosby has denied allegations other women have made against him.

    Democratic Assemblywoman Irene Bustamante Adams is sponsoring the bill. She said the bill is necessary because many women don’t immediately report sexual assault.
