Fresh off the mistrial in his sexual assault case, Bill Cosby is reportedly planning a series of Town Hall meetings to educate young people about sexual assault.
According to TMZ, Cosby’s spokespeople Andrew Wyatt and Ebonee Benson appeared on Good Day Alabama and said Cosby was ready to “get back to work” after his first sexual assault trial ended with a hung jury, thanks to two holdouts who could not agree that Cosby drugged and assaulted his accuser, Andrea Constand.
Prosecutors have said they will seek a retrial.
Explaining why Cosby is launching this lecture series, Wyatt said, “This is bigger than Bill Cosby.”
“This issue can affect any young person. Especially young athletes of today. They need to know what they are facing when they’re hanging out and partying, when they’re doing certain things they shouldn’t be doing.”
“And it also affects married men,” Wyatt added, laughing.
“The laws are changing,” said Ebonee Benson. “The statute of limitations for victims of sexual assault has been extended.
“This is why people need to be educated on … a brush against a shoulder … anything at this point be considered sexual assault. It’s good to be educated about the law.”
