Bill Cosby sexually abused a 16-year old girl at the Playboy Mansion in 1975, a California civil jury found on Tuesday.

The Los Angeles county jurors also awarded Judy Huth, who is now 64, $500,000 in damages.

Huth filed the lawsuit against Cosby in 2014 and on the first day of the trial three weeks ago, Huth's lawyer, Nathan Goldberg, argued that Cosby took advantage of spaces that were considered safe for her, such as a public park, in order to gain her trust.

The comedian met Huth and her friend, Donna Samuelson, on a film set in a park while he was filming "Let's Do It Again" and, days later, Cosby invited the girls to the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles.
