Cosby's past words on drugs and sex led to conviction: juror

Cosby's past words on drugs and sex led to conviction: juror

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.

"I didn't know anything", Snyder said.

"This is what they wanted", Cosby told the New York Post's Page Six after his conviction. Race and the #MeToo movement against sexual misconduct were never discussed, according to the statement, obtained by NBC's "Today" show. "He was a free man, but I remember when we met him at Robben Island where he had been in a prison for all of those years". But he will not go quietly into his prison cell.

Snyder's sentiments echoed similar statements from some jurors in Cosby's first trial, which ended in a mistrial and hung jury in June, who cited the sworn testimony that the comedy icon gave as part of a lawsuit accuser Andrea Constand filed against him in 2005, which later settled for almost $3.4 million.

Snyder, who said the case against Cosby was not open and shut, said he was unaware of #MeToo.

"Cosby admitted to giving these quaaludes to women, young women, in order to have sex with them", Snyder told the program.

If sentenced, the Department of Corrections must also take into account that aside from being an inmate, Cosby is also a celebrity and additional security measures may need to be taken to ensure his safety. He must also wear a Global Positioning System monitoring device.

"It was his deposition, really", Mr. Snyder, 22, the youngest of the 12 jurors, said in an interview that aired on Monday on ABC's "Good Morning America".

"This became a public lynching", Wyatt told ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos in the same interview.

The conviction Thursday of Cosby, who was found guilty on three counts of aggravated indecent assault, was immediately viewed by many as a turning point in the #MeToo movement that would tilt the balance of power and influence in courtrooms for female accusers.

They delivered a guilty verdict on Thursday.

"I was so happy for Andrea".

When asked what Victoria thought his sentencing should be, she replied: "Well I think the same special treatment that he gave us".

Bill Cosby was proven guilty of drugging and sexually assaulting women in 2004.

Snyder never considered the allegations to be an "open-and-shut case" before the trial, and revealed it wasn't the testimonies given in court by five of Cosby's other alleged victims, including former supermodel Janice Dickinson, which swayed the jury, instead pointing to the comedian's previous confession about using powerful sedatives during his youth to sleep with ladies he found attractive.
