Spare Us – Bill Cosby Planning Tour to Educate Young People on Sexual Assault

Embattled comic Bill Cosby plans to embark on a town hall-style speaking tour to educate young people about sexual assault allegations.

His spokespeople said on Thursday that due to changing laws, more young men will face sexual assault allegations.

Mr Cosby narrowly escaped a prison sentence when a sexual assault trial against him ended in a hung jury.

Prosecutors plan to retry the case. At least 50 other women accuse him of drugging and sexually assaulting them.

Cosby spokesman Andrew Wyatt told WBRC-TV’s Good Day Alabama that the comedian will begin his summer motivational speaking tour in Alabama as early as July.

“This is bigger than Bill Cosby,” Mr Wyatt said, adding “this issue can affect any young person, especially young athletes of today”.

“They need to know what they’re facing when they’re hanging out and partying, when they’re doing certain things that they shouldn’t be doing,” he told the interviewer.
