Until now, she’s been Bill Cosby’s biggest defender, amid allegations that he drugged and sexually abused women. But now, Whoopi Goldberg is backing away from her support.

Last week, on ABC’s “The View,” she said she believed in a person’s innocence until guilt is proven in a court of law. She spoke after the release of court documents that showed the comic admitted in 2005 to obtaining Quaaludes with the intent of giving them to women he wanted to have sex with.

Today, ABC News legal analyst Daniel Abrams went on the show to say that because of the statute of limitations, it would be very unlikely for any of Cosby’s accusers to take him to court. He said the only recourse for many of these women is the court of public opinion.

Goldberg said it was a “shock” to her that the passage of time is keeping many of these women from taking their accusations to court. And she conceded that “all of the information that’s out there kind of points to” Cosby’s guilt.

Goldberg urged viewers to contact their state representatives regarding laws about statutes of limitations on sexual assault cases. (Associated Press)
