The list of accusers just keeps getting longer. Two days after actress Renita Chaney Hill alleged Bill Cosby used to sexually abuse her when she was a teenager, a woman from Taos, New Mexico has added her name to the list.

Donna Motsinger, 73, claims she was one of the 12 Jane Does who testified against the Cosby Show star in the 2005 civil rape case filed by former Temple University athletics director Andrea Constand. And Motsinger (who claims she was Jane Doe number eight) says she feels like a “coward” for not having spoken out publically about the alleged abuse before now.

“I feel guilty not telling my story,” Motsinger told the New York Post from her home. “I’m a coward over here. Those women are brave. It’s the least I can do. I want to tell people so [the victims] can’t be bullied, so they can’t be discredited.”

Motsinger claims she was drugged and raped 43 years ago in 1971 at a jazz club in Sausalito, California. The civil case against Cosby was settled out of court in 2006.

Cosby’s attorney Martin D. Singer, who continues to deny the claims, told CNN on Friday, Nov. 21, “The new, never-before-heard claims from women who have come forward in the past two weeks with unsubstantiated, fantastical stories about things they say occurred 30, 40, or even 50 years ago have escalated far past the point of absurdity.”
