Local woman says she was sexually assaulted by Bill Cosby

TOLEDO (WTVG) - It's a story that made national headlines for years. After building a persona as a model husband and father for decades, Bill Cosby was found guilty of sexual assault last year. A local woman says she is one of his victims, and her story is part of a newly released book.

Patte O'Connor told us she was working at Clemson when she met Cosby in 1984. He was there for homecoming, and she was assigned to pick him up at the airport and bring him back to campus before his show.

Patte believes she was drugged and sexually assaulted by the star. It's a deeply painful chapter in her life that she didn't talk about much until recently. She's hoping her story can help others,"When he was convicted, it was a victory for me and all his other victims." CLICK FOR MORE
