Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck announced Thursday that any complaints filed with the LAPD against Bill Cosby, even those affected by a statute of limitations, would be investigated. It had been widely assumed that most of the accusations were too far in the past for law enforcement to take action. However, Beck said that no complaints against Cosby have been filed. “We don’t turn people away because things are out of statute. You come to us, especially with a sexual allegation, we will work with you,” Beck said. “We address these things seriously, and it’s not just because it’s Mr. Cosby.” Investigations into claims that are past the statute can lead investigators to other recent incidents. In California, rape allegations have a deadline of 10 years, but assaults involving minors can be prosecuted if the crime happened in 1988 or later.
