    Chloe Goins, a former model who accused comedian Bill Cosby of sexually abusing her at the Playboy Mansion and was arrested on drug charges in San Diego in July, will not face prosecution, the District Attorney's Office said Tuesday.

    Goins was scheduled to be arraigned in the Chula Vista Superior Court Tuesday but the hearing was removed from the court calendar.

    According to Tanya Sierra, a spokesperson with the District Attorney's Office, they did not issue charges in the case. Sierra said the office does not discuss its charging decisions, "Except to say we can only file charges when we believe we can prove them beyond a reasonable doubt."

    Goins was arrested July 23 and booked into the Las Colinas Detention and Reentry Facility.

    According to the San Diego County Sheriff's Department (SDSO), Goins was arrested in the parking lot of the George F. Bailey Detention Center in Otay Mesa on suspicion of bringing heroin into the jail.

    The charges against her included having a possible controlled substance and bringing alcohol and drugs into prison.

    Goins is one of 10 women who have accused Cosby of sexually abusing them.

    Cosby is being sued by Goins for battery, gender violence and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

    She claims the comedian spiked her drink during a party at the Playboy Mansion in 2008 and then abused her in a bedroom.
