Cosby clarifies statement on rape accusations

The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) A blanket denial from Bill Cosby's lawyer dismissing allegations of sexual abuse by the comedian against several women has been clarified with a subsequent statement.

The new statement released Monday says that Cosby's denials do not refer to accuser Andrea Constand, whose civil lawsuit against him was settled in 2006.

Differences between Cosby and Constand were "resolved to the mutual satisfaction" of both parties, according to the new statement, jointly issued by lawyers for Cosby and Constand. Neither party intends to comment further, it adds.

The earlier statement, issued over the weekend, referred to "decade-old, discredited allegations" against Cosby, stating that "the fact that they are being repeated does not make them true."

Constand had accused Cosby of drugging and sexually assaulting her in 2004.
