Colorado woman, Billy Cosby accuser, speaks about overturned conviction – The Denver Post

CASTLE ROCK — Heidi Thomas says she’s found forgiveness for the man that raped her years ago, but struggles to forgive what she calls “enablers” in the situation.

“I let go of any anger, that kind of thing … years ago.” said Thomas. “I do hold anger for the enablers.”

Thomas, based in Castle Rock, was one of the first to testify during Bill Cosby’s retrial in 2018.

In 1984, Thomas was 24 years old and an aspiring actress. She said when her agent sent her to meet with Cosby for coaching, he drugged and raped her. On Wednesday the Court overturned Cosby’s sex conviction.

“We know he’s guilty, but as far as I’m concerned, as of today, the justices that have made this decision have just enabled a criminal to go without a consequence. What message is that sending to other victims? To other perpetrators? And this is one case, but the precedent they have just set is devastating,” said Thomas.
