Los Angeles prosecutors Tuesday declined to file any charges against Bill Cosby after a woman recently alleged he molested her around 1974.

The rejection of a child sexual-abuse charge came roughly 10 days after the woman, Judy Huth, met with police detectives.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office rejected filing a misdemeanor charge of annoying or molesting a child under the age of 18 because the statute of limitations had passed.

Days before Huth spoke to police, she accused Cosby in a civil lawsuit of forcing her to perform a sex act on him when she was 15. Cosby's attorney said Huth tried to extort $250,000 from Cosby before she sued. - AP
