IDAHO FALLS — Tamara Green says she was one of the first women raped by Bill Cosby in the 1970s. She was around 20-years-old living in Hollywood and worked in the entertainment industry. Cosby asked her to help him raise money to open a private club and Green says he sexually assaulted her.

Earlier this month, Green spoke with EastIdahoNews.com at CrimeCon in Austin, Texas. She described feeling sick one day and calling Cosby to say she could not make it into work. He persuaded her to come to the restaurant and gave her over-the-counter cold medication. But the pills made her feel worse so Cosby offered to take her home. That’s where she says he raped her.

Green, an experienced defense attorney, came forward in 2005 and is one of more than 62 women who has accused Cosby of sexually assaulting them. Cosby was sentenced to three to 10 years in prison and designated a sexually violent predator on Sept. 25, 2018.

Pennsylvania’s highest court overturned Cosby’s sex assault conviction Wednesday after finding an agreement with a previous prosecutor prevented him from being charged in the case.

We spoke with Green after Cosby walked out of prison a free man. She reacted to the new developments and candidly shared her thoughts about what should happen next.
