Bill Cosby Will Reportedly Get Special Treatment in Prison as Sentencing Date Looms

Bill Cosby's talk of quaaludes led to conviction, says juror

The jury in Bill Cosby's retrial found him guilty of aggravated assault last week after about 12 hours of deliberation. "I don't think it necessarily mattered that these other five women were here". "Mr. Cosby admitted to giving these Quaaludes to women, young women, in order to have sex with him".

Prosecutors presented new witnesses at Cosby's most recent trial that the judge had blocked them from calling in 2017, including five other women who accused him of drugging and assaulting them.

"It was his deposition, really", Harrison Snyder told "Good Morning America".

"I think it was his deposition, really", said Harrison Snyder, 22, of Montgomery County in the USA state of Pennsylvania, in an interview with ABC News. He stated, "I knew he was an actor, I knew he did the 'Cosby Show.' I never watched the 'Cosby Show, ' I'm a little too young for that".

They delivered a guilty verdict on Thursday.

Planned Parenthood issued a statement in defense of Bill Cosby after the comedian was convicted of felony sexual assault.

Vester's attorney, Ari Wilkenfeld, said, "My client stands by the allegations, which speak for themselves". He notes that her contract was not renewed, a detail Vester also shared with The Post .

Snyder even said he didn't even know what the #MeToo movement is, that it consists of celebrities coming forward and outing those who have allegedly sexually assaulted them.

Then-District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman reopened the Cosby investigation in July 2015 after a federal judge, acting on a request from the AP, unsealed portions of Cosby's deposition testimony from a civil lawsuit he settled with Constand in 2006 for $3.4 million.

The report adds: "His attorneys might still be squawking about innocence and appeals, but Bill Cosby is mentally preparing himself for prison". "And I just tell them if you were there, you would say the same thing - you would say that he's guilty".

Meanwhile, the jury forewoman released a statement to say that the verdict was based exclusively on the evidence. He could be sentenced to up to 10 years in prison for each count on which he was convicted. "Not once were race or the #MeToo movement ever discussed, nor did either factor into our decision".

The Associated Press does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, as Constand did. Race and the #MeToo movement against sexual misconduct were never discussed, according to the statement, obtained by NBC's "Today" show.

It wasn't the first time Cosby referenced Mandela, the imprisoned anti-apartheid leader who later became South African's first black president.
