Linda Joy Traitz, one of Bill Cosby’s accusers, has an extensive criminal history. The latest report from TMZ shows that Linda Joy Traitz served time in prison for fraud. Court documents indicate that Linda Joy Traitz was incarcerated in 2009 for a drug offense for which she served three years. Traitz was released in 2012 but her criminal record includes past charges for stolen IDs, theft, and battery.
Linda Joy Traitz has been the latest among a slew of women who have accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault, drugging, and rape. According to Traitz, she met Cosby while working as a waitress in Los Angeles but stated that things took a turn for the worse after he offered her a ride home but took her to a beach instead. Traitz states that while they were at the beach, Bill Cosby offered her alcohol and drugs to get her high so that he could force himself on her. The Bill Cosby accuser also said that she declined to have sex with him and ordered him to take her home.
The Inquisitr reported earlier that Traitz claimed that Cosby attempted to sexually assault her in the 1970s when she was just a 19-year-old girl. Linda Joy Traitz is now 63 years old, according to the Daily Mail.
Marty Singer, attorney for Bill Cosby, told TMZ that Traitz’s accusations are among a list of many others that have yet to be proven, and that the stories are absolutely “absurd.”
According to Linda Traitz’s Facebook profile, she attended the Lee Strasberg Theatre And Film Institute in New York. She lives in Hallandale Beach, Florida, but is originally from Miami.
As more victims come forward, the stories about Cosby become worse. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest actress 68-year-old Louisa Moritz, has stated that Bill Cosby forced oral sex on her by putting his penis inside of her mouth more than four decades ago while she was backstage at NBC Studios. TMZ describes Louisa Moritz’ encounter this way.
“She says there was a knock at the door, and it was Cosby, who she says walked in and said he was impressed with her work and ‘implied that he was going to see to it that I will become a major star through his direction.'”
Many longtime Bill Cosby fans are lashing out, stating that the women who are coming forward many years after the fact seem as if they have an agenda, while others state that the women are just now getting the courage to speak up as they learn of each woman’s horrible experience with Cosby.
Bill Cosby’s wife, Camille, has remained mum on the allegations.
