Bill Cosby has been found liable of a historical sexual assault by a civil jury and has been ordered to pay $500,000 (£408,000) in damages.

The jury found him liable of a historic sexual assault, but he will not face jail time.

The 84-year-old was sued by Judy Huth who said he forced her to perform a sex act on him when she was 16 at the Playboy Mansion in 1975.

Huth first sued Cosby by in 2014 for sexual battery and two other claims of assault.

The jury began deliberating last Thursday at the Los Angeles Superior Court, after hearing Huth's account over the course of 10 days.

She is not the first woman who has accused the comedian of sexual misconduct.
