LOS ANGELES (AP) – Los Angeles County prosecutors have declined to charge Bill Cosby with sexually abusing two teenagers in 1965 and 2008, citing time limits and a lack of evidence.

Wednesday’s decision comes about a week after the 78-year-old comedian was charged with drugging and sexually assaulting a woman in 2004 inside his home near Philadelphia.

In LA County, the district attorney’s office investigated allegations by a woman who claimed Cosby forced her to have sex at a Hollywood Hills home in 1965 when she was 17. Investigators also looked into claims by model Chloe Goins that she passed out at the Playboy Mansion in 2008 party and awoke to find herself naked with Cosby biting her toe.

Cosby attorney Monique Pressley says the DA’s office fairly evaluated the facts and came to the right conclusion.
