(BuzzFeed News) — On Friday, actor Lili Bernard stated at a news conference in New York City that in the early 1990s, Bill Cosby drugged and raped her. Bernard, who guest-starred on the eighth and final season of The Cosby Show as Mrs. Minifield, said Cosby offered to mentor her, telling her, “You’re one of my kids.”

At the news conference, Bernard said, “He praised me. … He lifted me up. I believed him. After all, he was Bill Cosby. After he had won my complete trust and adoration, he drugged me and raped me.”

On April 30, Bernard, along with her lawyer Gloria Allred, went to the police station in Atlantic City to report the alleged crime. There is no statute of limitations for rape in New Jersey, meaning if the police find sufficient evidence to make a case against Cosby, he could be prosecuted.
