Why a Bill Cosby juror eventually thought he was guilty

Why a Bill Cosby juror eventually thought he was guilty

In an appearance on CNN late Thursday, Allred went a bit further, mulling the possibility Cosby was trying to "create a climate of opinion to potentially contaminate that jury pool or to influence them, depending on your point of view, so that if they are selected they will decide that somehow the charges against him are false".

On Monday, Mr. Wyatt said in an interview that there had been no change. If it could happen to Bill Cosby, it could happen to anybody.

He further explained: "These groups would like for Mr. Cosby to share that people in the judicial system can use their powers to annul deals for personal agenda and political ambitions". Rhimes' response is flawless, and sums up exactly why Bill Cosby shouldn't be organising Town Hall meetings. Because this is bigger than Bill Cosby.

Cosby was charged with three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault in 2015 stemming from a 2004 encounter with Andrea Constand at his home in Pennsylvania. "This issue can affect any young person, especially young athletes of today".

Ebonee Benson, a spokeswoman for Cosby's wife, Camille Cosby, interjected, "Laws are changing".

There's very little room for interpretation in their original statements, however; Both Benson and Wyatt quite clearly stated in the interview that the town halls would be in regards to sexual assault and how it can affect young people and married men, with the goal being to educate people about the law. While this might sound like an admission of guilt, "doing certain things that they shouldn't be doing", Cosby's spokespeople were adamant that the seminars were important.

Dugan said he believes if the jury had more evidence, the decision would have been much easier.

Of course, Cosby's team is suggesting that the whole world did inexplicably misinterpret this in the same way, and believe it or not, it's all because of that evil boogeyman called "the media".

"We had no real new evidence", he said.

"I just want to be clear". Cosby did not take the stand, but said in a decade-old deposition he gave Benadryl to Constand to "relax" her, and then the two had a consensual sexual encounter. This is the first time he's faced criminal charges in response to those claims, since the statute of limitations on many of those cases has expired.

Benson said: "The town hall meetings are not about sexual assault".

The US entertainment star is set to host free town meetings to advise people on how they can protect themselves from allegations of sexual assault. "This poorly planned P.R. stunt is nothing short of a tour of blatant victim-blaming".

But she retained her courage and urged people to "be who you are" as thousands took to the streets in rainbow-colored marches to celebrate gay pride and civil rights in NY and San Francisco yesterday. Now that he's not sitting in jail for sexual assault, he's going to embark on a national tour that tells people how they can avoid sitting in jail for sexual assault.
