LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Comedian Bill Cosby, who has been the subject of dozens of sex abuse allegations over the past two months, will not be charged in connection with a 1974 sexual molestation claim, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office said on Tuesday.

The claim, which was recently brought by a California woman Judy Huth, was deemed to have been too old and surpassed the state's statute of limitations. Huth alleges Cosby molested her as a 15-year-old at the Playboy mansion.
