None of the recent sexual assault accusations leveled against Bill Cosby have resulted in any criminal proceedings against the comedian because the mostly decades-old allegations exceed the statute of limitations for the crimes. On Tuesday, Los Angeles prosecutors added the allegations made by Judy Huth to that list.

Huth came forward earlier this month alleging that Cosby molested her at a 1974 Playboy Mansion party, forcing her to perform oral sex when she was just 15 years old. “Los Angeles prosecutors said the 40-year-old case is far past the statute of limitations,” according to the Los Angeles Times. “They noted the statute of limitations at the time of the alleged incident was three years… The laws back then would have made the crime only a misdemeanor, the DA said.”
