Bill Cosby wants to educate young people about sexual assault. Less than a week after his own sexual abuse case ended in a mistrial, the 79-year-old plans to hold speaking engagements over the summer to inform young people—especially those being accused—on assault.

Andrew Wyatt and Ebonee Benson, Cosby's spokespeople, shared the news with Good Day Alabama on Wednesday, per TMZThe comedian wants to teach young people in "town halls" on how to look out and protect themselves from accusations. Wyatt says that the seminars, which being in July, will focus on young people like athletes who need to "know what they're facing when they're hanging out and partying, when they're doing certain things that they shouldn't be doing."

"This is bigger than Bill Cosby," shared Wyatt. "People need to be educated," added Benson, pointing to the fact that the statute of limitations for sexual assault allegations is being extended in many cases.

Aside from being charged with three counts of aggravated indecent assault in 2004 by Andrea Constand in his trial, Cosby has been accused by dozens of women for drugging and assaulting them over the years.
