After weeks of explosive allegations, Bill Cosby received some good news on Tuesday: RadarOnline.com has learned that he will not be charged over a molestation claim made by one of his accusers.

The woman, Judy Huth, had gone public with claims Cosby molested her earlier this month in a civil lawsuit filed in L.A. As Radar reported, she subsequently met with LAPD detectives over the allegations.

But according to The Hollywood Reporter, prosecutors have declined to file charges against the beleaguered comedian, as the statute of limitations for the 1974 incident has passed.

Huth is suing Cosby for allegedly sexually assaulting her when she was 15 years old.

Cosby has asked that the case be dismissed, citing the same statute of limitations that led prosecutors to decline to charge.

In addition, his attorney Marty Singer has claimed that Huth contacted Cosby’s camp prior to filing the lawsuit in an attempt to extort him for six figures.

Story developing.
