Cosby Accuser Reacts to Bombshell Court Docs: 'It's the Day of Reckoning'
A woman who accuses Bill Cosby of rape discussed with Shepard Smith why it took her 30 years to come forward with her allegations.
Barbara Bowman also reacted to the bombshell court documents that have emerged, calling it a "great day of truth and justice."
According to court documents released Monday, Cosby admitted under oath that he obtained Quaaludes for the purposes of drugging women.
"When you got the Quaaludes, was it in your mind that you were going to use these Quaaludes for young women that you wanted to have sex with?"
"Yes," Cosby responded in the Sept. 2005 deposition.
Andrea Constand was the first woman to come forward and accuse Cosby of drugging and sexually assaulting her. Constand's lawsuit against the legendary comedian and actor was eventually settled.
The documents related to her case had remain sealed until now. Cosby has repeatedly denied the allegations.
Bowman is one of the more than two dozen women who've come forward with similar accusations against Cosby. Six of the accusers say they were under 18 when they were raped.
Bowman said she was raped at age 17 by Cosby in the 1980s while she was an aspiring actress. Bowman said at the time, she didn't realize she was being drugged and never knowingly took any drugs with Cosby.
"I did accept beverages from him and would end up waking up half-naked, throwing up in his toilet with him holding my hair out of my face," said Bowman.
She recalled being raped by Cosby in his apartment and on another occasion in Atlantic City, in which she said he attacked her "like an animal" after she awoke.
"He viciously tried to rape me and smother me and put his hands around my neck, put his elbow under my neck. I was seeing stars. I got out of there. He was so enraged that he threw me out and threatened me that he better never see my face or hear my name again," said Bowman.
Smith asked Bowman why she waited so long to come forward with her story.
Bowman said she told her agent in Denver about what had happened, but the agent "did nothing."
She recalled being afraid of Cosby, explaining that she did not go to the police because he had threatened her.
"I was told, 'no one will believe you.' ... I was young and scared out of my mind," said Bowman.
"He was Bill Cosby. He was Dr. Huxtable at the time. Nobody was believing that," she said, recalling that she eventually went to a lawyer and he "laughed me out of the office."
Bowman said the new court documents are a "game changer," adding that she came forward in order to support Constand and the other women and "expose" Cosby.
"It's the day of reckoning," she said, explaining that Cosby's accusers have been silenced and "defamed" for a long time.
