"Obviously are not all serial killers but that is a large large tr- overwhelming chocolate true crime so when two twelve year old girls scheme for six months to kill their best friend like their absolute best friend to please a shitty fictional character from an online. It is kind of a big deal. So i hope that she has gotten the mental health systems and aid that she has needed while she's been there for the last couple years and it is definitely going to be a difficult road so moving onto something that really made me wanna fling my computer across the chair and basically burned down. The world is bill cosby guys was released from prison. Cosby served only three years of a ten year. Sentence in prison after andrea constand testified in a criminal case against him that she was drugged and raped by bill cosby directly. After kind of during it too. If you guys remember the media circus that happened all of the women that came forward more than seventy women. Seventy seven zero women came forward claiming that that bill cosby drugged and raped them. So why in the hell was he released. It's actually very interesting. And it's not something that i personally have ever seen before so i think that that's why this is particularly worth noting. Also that a little rapist. Someone who raped likely like seventy plus women just you know. Hey cool you're you're you're good. You can go now. But it's not nearly the simple. His sentence was overturned by the pennsylvania supreme court because of an agreement that bill cosby had made with then montgomery county district. Attorney bruce castor in two thousand and five andrea causton is an all around freaking rockstar. And what happened is that she had brought a civil case against tom. The agreement stated that if bill cosby sat down for a deposition in a civil case that constant had brought that he would then be immune from criminal prosecution and in that deposition bill cosby admitted to all of it. He admitted to giving quayle's to women with whom he wanted to have sex. He and he also admitted to having an insane amount of extramarital affairs so he more or less raped women pretty much said. Yep i literally drug women who i want to have sex with and i'm literally cheating all over my wife everywhere he admitted to it guys. It's on audio. It's on video. You can even see it on youtube but then in its judgment and it makes sense and our justice system actually works when our legal system actually works and sometimes it hurts sometimes. Justice does not prevail. And this is one of those instances so in its judgment. The pennsylvania supreme court held that the decision to use bill cosby statements from his deposition against him deprived him of his fifth amendment rights..
Victoria Valentino, Bill Cosby Accuser, Speaks About His Overturned Conviction
"Bill Cosby came down this week, chances are pretty good. Your reaction was the same as ours in the newsroom. What just happened here? It was a stunning ruling the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, throwing out Cosby's sexual assault conviction and releasing him from prison. Cosby, who is now 83 flashed the V for victory sign to a helicopter overhead as he trudged into his suburban Philadelphia home after serving nearly three years of a 3 to 10 year sentence for drugging and violating Temple University sports administrator Andrea Constand in 2000 and four Cause we spoke with ABC news after he was released over body had defense to say Wait one second. This doesn't match up with the truth. This is not what I was taught in college. This is not what I was part in all the former Cosby Show Star was one of the first celebrities tried and convicted in the ME two era. Can't stand and her lawyers called the ruling disappointing, as did many of the as many as 50 women who accused Cosby of similar actions. One accuser, Victoria Valentino spoke with NBC's Kyra Phillips after his release. First of all, How are you feeling right now? It's been a long day of very distressing day, a very emotional day and a very infuriating day. I think all rape survivors. Have an impotent rage because they are not able to really be listen to be validated be vindicated when he received his guilty, guilty, guilty verdict. We thought we had received justice. What

"Okay so was justice served. Our bill cosby is free. His conviction overturned by the supreme court of pennsylvania. My answer is no and and and it's no on several different levels and and interesting different levels as well and it's like on across the board. Justice is not served. And i say this because i equate justice with the truth right and at truth and accountability. So in this case what is the truth right. Well the the original the jury found him guilty. Found the truth right. They listened to the testimony. They believed the accuser. They believe the other evidence and they came to a verdict. So at that point. You've got your truth. The jury speaks the truth at the end of the case. But now this case has been taken out of their hands. We're no longer talking about a jury decision. Despite the fact that they made a decision that they made a judgment based upon credibility in evidence and burdens of proof and everything else. They did everything a jury supposed to do. And and came to that conclusion. That bill cosby sexually assaulted andrea constand. And then our system took over from there with the punishment an accountability that comes with that but that judgment has been vacated so so we don't have the jury speaking so while we know what they said. We don't know what has been found here and no one is being held responsible for conduct. Okay so you can't have justice. Under those circumstances now there's another reason and it's a very different reason but it's like you flip the coin over right you flip it over and you say well according to the supreme court of pennsylvania. They're never should have been a trial. This man never should have been tried. This man never should have been convicted. There was a violation of his constitutional rights. And that's real. That's absolutely real. We can't compromise that we can't bend the constitution. No we follow it. We follow the constitution. That is it that is our system of justice. that's the entire basis is in that document. So you'll look at this from the other side in our system of justice. We don't want people who were illegally. Convicted should not have been tried should not have been convicted. We don't want them serving time behind bars. So you look at it from the one end of from the accuser victim in the case andrea constand. There's no justice you look at it. From bill cosby's perspective. There is no justice so this is one of those very unusual cases where both sides just leave with a bad taste with a bad bad taste and in and you think about what happened here. What a mess that was created and how justice was not served. It wasn't served for the victim it wasn't served for the defendant and ultimately is not served for the public nice because mistakes were made big time. Mistakes were made now. The key though to looking at this with a little bit of a half full perspective is that the supreme court made the ruling that they made okay. And i'm not saying that. I believe bill cosby is innocent. I'm not saying. I believe bill cosby should be a free man. I'm not saying that. What andrea constand said was not true but what i'm saying is the case went through the rigor of our judicial system and applying all of the constitutional standards to it and then a judgment was made by the supreme court and to be fair. I look at it. It's it's the right call because there was this agreement now should the agreement have been made no there should have been a different way to handle all of it but at the end of the day an agreement was made it was relied upon. It was fundamentally unfair. I agree with all that language. Should the remedy have been what it was to bar any future prosecution. Not necessarily. I can disagree on that. But the conviction overturned tossed vacated discharged. Yes that had to happen. So in that sense you have a little bit of justice in that we know that when these cases end up in court that they will go through the process and the process will be true to our constitutional standards. We're not going to bend the constitution because we believe that someone is listen. They didn't follow the constitution. But i really think he's guilty so we gotta do. We gotta do here. No we want we want justices and judges to make rulings based on the law and apply the facts to the law and come to the same conclusion regardless of any other potential pressures. That are out there so if you want to look at it half full i if you believe justice was not served by this being overturned. He did serve time behind bars so he did do more than two years in prison and was becoming eligible for parole. So that being said this is an ugly case. It's an aberration. And i don't think it will serve as much of a precedent for anything because i don't think they'll ever be another case quite like this one anyway folks.

"Result of that. And you know it's interesting because in most cases where a conviction is overturned. There's a new trial and in this case there were actually three options right. There was option one which is overturned and give him a new trial. They did not take that option option to overturn. Give him a new trial. But don't allow in cosby's words in the deposition right. It was option three which they said. This was such a fundamental violation. That they're simply cannot be a new trial period. I gotta say that just seems so frustrating. Who's concerned with just. Did he sexually assault this woman in this case or not. That's not somehow that's not the thing that's an issue with this case right. It's frustrating is done. Dan like you know this the. Us supreme court but state supreme court pennsylvania highest in the state is going to remain free for the rest of his life. This is done. This is over. Bill cosby is a free man and he's not going to be retry. In the meantime bill cosby continues to deny that he had any non consensual sex with these women andrea constand. Any of the accusers dan abrahams thanks so much. Thank you so. That's the legal analysis. That's the reason given by the court system but that's still leading some advocates to ask. What impact is this going to have on women. Safety look beyond cosby. Does this make it more or less likely. That survivors of sexual assault are going to come forward and tell their story in an effort to help those around them or will they stay silent. We're joined now by one of the women who accused bill cosby of sexual assault in the past. One of the dozens of women patricia. Leary joined dozen patricia. How did you find out about this ruling. I was looking on my facebook feed and saw something that an author who wrote a book called chasing cosby posted about the ruling and was pretty stunned. That had happened. This quickly So and then there are a lot of questions about. Why did i even bother to go through this. If this is the outcome and when i come to then is great comfort about. I told the truth. That was the only thing in this whole process that was within my power and that's true of the other women who came forward as well. The entire remainder of the process was out of our control And then i'm angry that the system can be this easily beaten if one has money and power. Is that what it feels like that that he he beat this vici- by by by legal machinations. I think so. I also believe that those that the setup for those potential pitfalls are on the that the prosecutor prosecutors the original prosecutor bruce castor and that mr steele the prosecutor who brought the prosecution against mr cosby in both trials that they made certain errors in mounting their prosecution that allowed for this appeal and allowed for this decision. And but then. I have a bigger question which is how do you prove a pattern of behavior. If you can't introduce other people in these cases to testify on behalf of the person who's bringing the charge so a lot of questions that won't be resolved including the one about what the ultimate outcome for mr cosby and the remainder of his life will be if we're talking at the order of all this. You know that the criminal prosecution didn't happen andrea constand. Civil suit did happen. You supported that suit. You claim that forty years ago cosby drugged you. Multiple times with what sounded like a really similar routine to constant. But was this kind of appeal. This result was this possibility on your radar. I heard some speculation quite a while ago about the basis upon which they could make an appeal for mr cosby so i knew that these things were going to be considered and therefore would be brought up in some courtroom somewhere about an appeal so yes i knew it was possible but again when i start to worry about the outcome i remind myself that that's entirely out of my control and that the only thing i could do i did. I came forward. And i told the truth. What does this do for other people out there. I mean i get that. The law is the law. Perhaps but i got to imagine that. There's a practical concern here of our women to be less willing to come out and tell their stories in the future if they even look at this case the most high profile case in the country and go god he still got out. I think that's an entirely possible. That women will have that reaction. I mean i didn't come forward for all the years that i was quiet about this because i was told by three people that i shared it with initially that no one would believe me so i should just not say anything and so that's why women don't come forward now. I mean you will if you come forward. In any of these cases there will be people who believe you particularly after.

"Before we dive into our story. Let me introduce myself. I'm an investigative journalist and I live outside Philadelphia. Pennsylvania one day January two thousand five. A woman named named Andrea Constand went to the police and said Bill Cosby had drugged and assaulted her. When I first heard Andras Account I was skeptical? But as I dug into the details of her story for the Philadelphia Daily News where I was working at the time I came to believe Andrea and I've stayed with her story for the past fifteen years. I was a big cosby fan when this all began the cosby show debuted my senior year in high school. They say near my older brother inside. My mother was paralyzed with grief which she never really recovered from before she died ten years later and my father had all he could handle trying to to hold the family together while juggling the demands of a job that took him out of town several nights a week. I could relate to the onscreen relationship between cliff and Theo huxtable because I'd watched my father and brother engage in similar battles throughout my childhood. The cosby show was an escape for me also felt real because I knew cosby based show show on his own family that image I had of Bill Cosby as the easygoing cliff huxtable was about to come crashing down the the same year Andrea Constand went to police thirteen other women came forward saying cosby assaulted them or attempted to do so. I covered this case for the the Philadelphia Daily News. Many my stories landed with a splash and I made the rounds doing spots on Greta van Susteren and Dan Abrahams shows my reporting caught. The I've people magazine where I worked on a story about COSBY's accusers. That ran in two thousand six but then things went quiet and cosby seemed unscathed aid. It would take another decade a viral video and unsealed deposition and more than sixty accusers before he would be charged for his fine Cosby is now behind bars and maintains his innocence. He has in the past denied accusations of drugging and sexual assault. And through. A spokesman said he had no comment offer on this podcast. But I still have so many questions. How could someone who's done so much good do so so much evil at the same time? How many people knew cosby was doing and stayed quiet? Why is there such visceral distrust of women who say they've been sexually assaulted salted? Why did this take hold in two thousand fourteen? But not in two thousand five and how in the end did victims lawyers journalists and angry young Canadian finally bring him down to listen to the rest of the episode and the series.

I'm Marco werman and you're with the world. We're a co production of the BBC World Service PRI and WGN h here in Boston. The day has come. The time has come. Those were the words today by judge Steven O'Neill in a courtroom in Pennsylvania. Judge o.'neil sentenced Bill Cosby to three to ten years in state prison. Cosby was convicted of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand. This is another key moment in the story of the metoo movement. The hashtag campaign began almost a year ago and it's not over a string of high profile. Men accused of sexual misconduct have lost their jobs in some of them are looking for redemption including former public radio hosts, John hawkenberry, he wrote a seven thousand word essay in Harper's magazine about what he calls his exile. That drew a lot of criticism. Annamaria tramonte is the host of the current a radio show on the CBC in Canada. Last week, she interviewed Rick MacArthur. He's the publisher of Harper's about. His decision to publish that say, here's one moment from that conversation. He's not been accused of anything criminal Aachen berry. He's been erased and that's the argument he's making his peace. He's been erased from the culture. Right. Okay. So let me just can't work it. You can't write anymore just to let me let me get there. Then there is something in the tone of voice. I hear in your tone of voice and in the tone of voice or the other person who was on the show, it rises to the level of Soviet style reeducation Soviet-style reeducation I s host Annamaria tramonte what that was about in the early nineties I was in and out of Moscow and other parts of the Soviet republics and former republics. So when he used that shorthand for Soviet interrogation, that just struck me as provocative thing to say. So I shot back, you know, I I, the last time I checked Soviet interrogators were not on a mission to question those who try to uphold the status quo, and arguably that's what Mr. McCarthy was trying to do. I got to say, listen to your interview with MacArthur and what struck me most was how he was interrupting you. I mean, really kind of running away with the Mike and I couldn't help wondering. I mean, you host the show every day. How common is that experience? It happens occasionally. And in fact, that's, you know, I have a clock in front of me and I'm watching the time go because it was live to the Atlantic Canada, and then we roll over in time zones. So I knew I had a finite amount of time with him and I wanted to get to a different discussion I wanted to. I wanted to ask, but first of all, I, I wanted to know why he thought it was that this was an essay that he needed to publish in his magazine, and then I wanted his views on what that's all about on the so-called redemption or the re entry of people who have been forced out socially and then ostracized like hawkenberry had been. And you know there is a conversation around that, and I wanted to hear his view, but we never got there. That interview was last week and yesterday you dedicated your show the current to the metoo movement. You went live for five hours asking Canadians, what they thought of the me too movement. Alison is on the line from Montreal. Hi, Allison. Hey, what are you thinking? Where do you think the metoo conversation should go? Next? I came out around the just before actually the meat. You movement blew up with my story and no one sort of talked about the aftermath of that was really happy that the show is like you're following up because so Maria, let's let's talk about what you've been hearing, what the Canadians tell you. Well, some people, overwhelmingly people said it needs to keep going that it is not a time to say, well, it's done. It's thing, right? There's more to do. I'm really struck me was the number of women who called in a few men who called in and talked about serious abuse decades ago, and they really have not been able to talk about it till their families to their partners to anyone until now..

"And then until there was of course the criminal case that went to trial for the first time last year and failed and with a hung jury but what's your sense of why the jury found him guilty in this trial i expect that the five fellow survivors or sister survivors who are allowed to testify about prior bad acts by mr cosby i'm sure that made a difference this time i suspect that mister mezro his defense attorneys vary aggressive defence of mr cosby in which he is credited andrea and anyone else who spoke on her behalf was probably over played it was too heavy handed for the people who are in the jury and then there's the two movement which has shaped the culture and the human beings who live in the culture even though the judge admonished the jury not to allow what was happening culturally to alter their deliberations about this particular case there been beings 'cause they have been changed as a result of the culture being changed it's interesting the jury was seven men and five women they did have more evidence to work with because of the five women who were allowed to be to be witnesses in this trial but it's also much speculated that the women themselves were more believable since the me too campaign that people distinct well yeah now i've heard this it's quite possible this happened do you think that's what we're talking about i think so i think that if five women who were carefully chosen from a large group of dividers because their stories were closest to what andrea constand said happened to her the jury had to take that into account none of us to do other we had no way of coordinating stories so the jury would have to take it.
