Woman Tells CNN Cosby "Groped and Terrorized" Her

Linda Traitz was either 18 or 19 when she met Bill Cosby, she said; she did not recall exactly. But she was fresh out of high school and new to the city, she said.

Cosby offered her a ride home but on the way, told her he'd like to swing by the beach with her in his Rolls Royce, she said. They parked, and he offered her drugs, an array of brightly colored pills, "to relax," she alleged.

She said no, a few times. "He kept offering me the pills," she alleged, and it made her feel uncomfortable. She claimed that he then groped her chest, pushing her down in the seat and toward the door, and tried to lay on top her.

    I find this lady and her brother very credible! She has nothing to gain, and risks her own reputation. It is very shameful that the Cosby team chose to respond by attacking her just like rape victims used to be attacked during rape trials (now illegal).

    I believe every word. This happened to me, NOT WITH BILL COSBY, but with another older man in a position of power in the 1970s. This ring so true to me
