DENVER -- One of Bill Cosby’s alleged sexual assault victims who lives in Denver is speaking out after a judge announced Cosby’s Pennsylvania case will move forward in court.

That case involves a former Temple University employee. Beth Ferrier heard the news Wednesday afternoon.

“This was not a disappointment. This is exactly where we're supposed to be,” she said.

Ferrier was a model in the early 1980s through 2000. In the mid-1980s, she met Cosby.

“He just became very interested in me once he met me in '84. When I flew in, had breakfast with him and from then on, he wouldn't let me go,” Ferrier said.

Ferrier said the harassment wouldn’t stop. She said Cosby would continue to reach out to her in a flirtatious way.

"He was calling me in Chicago, he was calling my family in Denver, he was calling my ex-husband. I got divorced because of Bill Cosby,” Ferrier said.

Then one day, in 1986, when Cosby was performing in Denver, Ferrier said she went to ask him to stop. But when she arrived, she said Cosby handed her a drink.

“[He] offered me a cappuccino. And within a minute, within a minute I'm like hot, can't feel my body. And I'm embarrassed,” Ferrier said.

Ferrier blacked out shortly after and woke up around 3 a.m. in the back of her car with her clothes tangled about.

“Right off the bat, I thought 'That bastard,’” she said, referring to Cosby.

On Wednesday, she had the same reaction when she learned Cosby’s case would move to a preliminary trial.
