Three More Women Accuse Cosby of Abuse

Three more women have come forward with allegations that the embattled comedian Bill Cosby victimized them.

At a press conference Wednesday, the women with their attorney Gloria Allred spoke to the press for the first time. One of the women was a flight attendant. The other two were actresses, including one who appeared on "The Cosby Show."

One of the victims talked about the moments after she alleges Cosby sexually assaulted her during a job interview.

"He gloated over my humiliation," the woman said. "He planned it. Even to this day I am still ashamed that I went into shock. I wish I had tried to kick him."

The news comes as Cosby is expected to give sworn testimony in October in a lawsuit from a woman accusing the comedian of sexually abusing her when she was 15 years old.

The Oct. 9 date for Cosby's deposition was noted in a ruling Wednesday that requires Cosby to testify before his attorneys take the statement of the accuser.

NBC does not name victims of sexual assault.

The accuser in the earlier claim says Cosby abused her after bringing her to the Playboy Mansion around 1974. Cosby's lawyers have called the lawsuit an extortion attempt and say she tried to sell the allegations to a tabloid years ago.

The Associated Press obtained excerpts of Cosby's deposition in a 2005 lawsuit from a woman accusing him of sexual battery. Cosby has admitted that he obtained drugs he intended to give to women he wanted to have sex with.

Cosby has not been charged with a crime and he and his representatives have denied allegations in the past.
