Juror says Bill Cosby's own words led to his conviction

Juror says Bill Cosby's own words led to his conviction

Each one said they lost consciousness nearly immediately after being given a substance by Cosby - pills or a drink, presumably drugged - after which he sexually assaulted them.

"After the verdict was read Thursday and Judge Steven O'Neill chastised District Attorney Kevin Steele for his continued objection to allowing Cosby to remain free on bail, Cosby erupted", the story reports, quoting Cosby "screaming" at Steele: "He doesn't have a plane, you a-hole".

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.

The first member of the jury that convicted Bill Cosby last week to speak publicly said Monday that he found the comedy icon's own words to be the most damning evidence against him.

Prosecutors said they are confident Cosby's conviction will stand.

"We could kind of see the writing on the wall with the first jury", he said. Additionally, his lawyers have promised to appeal the conviction.

It was then Cosby reportedly shouted: 'He doesn't have a plane, you a-hole!'

Feden said she felt "that needed to be exposed". "It was devastating for everyone involved", she said. Portions of Cosby's deposition testimony from a civil lawsuit he settled with Constand in 2006 for $3.4 million were unsealed. This made him a minority in the jury pool: Most of the jurors said they had heard of both the Me Too movement and the allegations against Cosby.

Feden questioned Constand. Ryan cross-examined star defense witness Marguerite Jackson.

But the jury rejected the defense argument.




Feden, a point guard in her basketball days, said she pivoted immediately when she saw Cosby out of the corner of her eye, smirking as she spoke about the similarities in Cosby's conduct with Constand and the five other accusers. "I'm furious", Feden said.

Snyder said he entered the deliberation room without a guilty or not guilty verdict in mind and the charges did not feel like an "open-and-shut case".

She lost the case.

"If you were there, you would say the same thing", added Snyder.

The Associated Press does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, as Constand has done.

Snyder's sentiments on Cosby's deposition echoed similar statements from some jurors in the entertainer's first trial, which ended in a mistrial and hung jury in June. "Mr. Cosby admitted to giving these quaaludes to women, young women, in order to have sex with them", Snyder said on "Good Morning America". "I didn't do what they said I did", Cosby explained to the Post.

Bill Cosby was found guilty of three counts of aggravated indecent assault on 26 April after he was accused of drugging and violating Andrea Constand in 2004.

Cosby, who is current on house arrest as he awaits sentencing, faces up to 10 years behind bars for each count. "I didn't even really know about the #MeToo movement".

Meanwhile, the jury forewoman released a statement to say that the verdict was based exclusively on the evidence.
