Seven women who have accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault have issued a subpoena for his wife Camille Cosby to be deposed next month.
A millionaire property developer was cleared of criminal charges after he claimed he “accidentally” raped a teenage girl when he “fell” on top of her.
Ben Crump is teaming up with local attorneys to file a federal civil suit against former Oklahoma City police officer Daniel Holtzclaw.
Bill Cosby is taking seven of his accusers to court for defamation.
Daniel Holtzclaw’s rape victims showed us how powerful we can be when we decide not to suffer in silence. They deserve to be celebrated for that.
His pleas to support R&B music are warranted, yes, but given Kelly’s past and what that means for Black women, isn’t it about time we stop separating the music from the man?
Jannie Ligons, who reported Holtzclaw to the police, was joined by other victims outside of the Oklahoma County District Courthouse with civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump, who represented five of the victims.
A group of Holtzclaw’s victims ironically sang “Happy Birthday” to the 29-year-old after a judge found him guilty on 18 of 36 counts, including rape and sodomy. The jury’s decision was delivered on the former cop’s birthday.
Throughout the trial, the defense has been emphasizing many of the victims’ pasts in sex work and drug use, accusing them of lying and of having agendas to debunk their credibility.
Daniel Holtzclaw was found guilty on 18 of 36 charges, which ranged from rape, sexual battery and other charges.
