Cosby was convicted of three counts of indecent sexual assault last week, but remains on house arrest after Judge O'Neill ruled that he did not need to be jailed while he was awaiting his sentencing, citing Cosby's advanced age and his previous cooperation with all court orders.
The Post said it also interviewed Cosby past year during his first trial, which ended in a mistrial because of a hung jury. He stated on Cosby, "I think it was his deposition, really". He added: "I never watched The Cosby Show or anything".More news: Draft-Rams-Third Day
Accuser Andrea Constand's allegations that Cosby had drugged and molested her at his suburban Philadelphia mansion in 2004, revived out of almost a decade of dormancy by another comedian's viral joke, had coalesced into a movement of women who said he violated them, too.
Adding that this was not "an open and shut case", the 22-year old said he is confident the jury made the right decision.
"If they found him not guilty, I felt like they were feeding into every character assassination on sex crime victims".
He cited the testimony of prosecutors' first witness - Dr Barbara Ziv, an expert in sexual assault victim behaviour - as key to explaining away numerous attacks the defense lobbed at Constand for inconsistencies in the story she told police. That alleged agreement prompted Cosby's candor in the 2005 deposition, Cosby's team argued; the deal, which would help Constand's civil suit, meant that the testimony could never be deployed in a criminal case against Cosby.More news: NFL Draft: Pittsburgh Steelers find a steal in Mason Rudolph
The Associated Press (via via MSN) has a report with more details on the recent Bill Cosby case and what led to his conviction in his sexual assault trial.
"If you were there, you would say the same thing".
"After thoughtful and meticulous consideration of the information and evidence provided to us, we came to our unanimous verdict", the jury said.
In its statement, the Cosby jury said its decision was not influenced in any way by factors other than what was seen and heard in the courtroom. "Not once were race or the #MeToo movement ever discussed, nor did either factor into our decision, as implied in various media outlets". "I didn't even know about the #MeToo movement". After Cosby's first trial, the judge released the list.More news: Story of the Azerbaijan Grand Prix: Red Bull calamity triggers Bottas heartbreak
