San Diego, CA (KSWB) — Tamara Green of Fallbrook is accusing comedian Bill Cosby of sexually assaulting her back in the 1970’s when she was living in Los Angeles.

Green, now an attorney, was a model and aspiring actress during that time. She was also a part-time bookkeeper for Cosby.

She recalled not having a reason to mistrust the beloved comedian until she became ill and he offered her what she believed to be medication.

“I was losing mobility. I couldn’t hold my head up. I was really starting to stagger around the room. So when we got to my apartment I was helpless…” Green explained.

“He was peeling me out of my clothes, and I’m thinking, ‘No, no, no, no.’ But I had no motor control… He did not rape me per say, but he sexually assaulted me everywhere he could with everything else he had,” Green said.

Green told her story back in 2005 and was met with plenty of criticism but knew the truth would eventually come out.

“For me to be quiet is as much about protecting my family as it is about coming out exposing him and knowing that no one would believe me… If [Cosby] doesn’t do anything about it and doesn’t say anything about it, and doesn’t own it, this will be his legacy,” Green said.

So far, 16 women have come forward accusing the 77-year-old comedian of sexual assault. His lawyer last week called the stories “unsubstantiated.”

“You’re running out of time, old man. You better find some way to do something heroic or redemptive,” Green said.
