3 new women in LA accuse Cosby of sexual assaults long ago

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Three more women have accused Bill Cosby of drugging and sexually assaulting them years ago.

Attorney Gloria Allred held a news conference Wednesday in Los Angeles with the women who described unwanted encounters with the comedian between 1981 and 1996 in LA and Las Vegas.

Allred says the accusations are too old for criminal charges or lawsuits, but she reiterated her challenge that Cosby waive the statute of limitations to allow lawsuits.

More than 15 women have come forward with claims Cosby sexually assaulted them decades ago. The star of the "The Cosby Show" has never been charged in connection with any of the allegations.

Allred urged Canadians not to pay to see Cosby on his three-night tour in Ontario.

A call to Cosby's lawyer was not immediately returned.
