"bill cosby" Discussed on Here & Now
"The decision negates the fact that a jury of his peers convicted him and the many many people who came forward bravely with a lot of risk to themselves. That's on my mind and heart in these days. Because i know they are so rightly disappointed in the way the system failed them. It does call into question how difficult it is to get a conviction in these kind of cases of rape and sexual assault in that. Bill cosby had fifty or more accusers. And it still. He still ended up getting convicted. But then again is is conviction was overturned. So what does that tell you about what needs to happen next. Well i have to say that. The pennsylvania supreme court decision was really and highly unusual one. Because here there wasn't actually a written agreement you know and so it. I'm not sure that you will see a broad application of this. Bill cosby rule in a lot of other cases. It really read like a decision that might apply to bill cosby and only bill cosby and and and that brings up. A range of of power considerations. Part of the problem is the prosecutor didn't initially believe the women who came forward and and then not being believed not taking the concerns in claim seriously is part of why it's hard to get a conviction in the first place in most sexual assault isn't ever reported at all but for those who do come forward and do report. They face people all along the way who disbelieved them who disrespect them who disregard them and we have to look at this as a giant example of that that has huge consequences not just for the individuals in the cosby case but for the many people who are wondering whether they too should come forward and well the next question then would have to be a for those people who are wondering whether they should come forward or not. How concerned are you that this will have a chilling effect. It's my hope that the opposite will happen. That it will be a galvanizing moment for survivors and that it will be a giant wakeup call for prosecutor offices around the country around the steps that they have taken over the last several years and whether or not they are meeting this moment to meet this moment we actually have to have spaces where survivors can get. Justice can get accountability. That feels real to them. And and what's in place right now isn't working. It's not serving survivors. Well fatima goss graves president and.
Fresh update on "bill cosby" discussed on Dewitt Law Review
"Moses 4753667. 37. But before we do get to these emails gear big legal news this week that I'm kind of curious about his. I really don't understand how it happens, but Bill Cosby. Oh, yeah is let free Hogan. Good. He is basically going to live the rest of his life out now as old as 88. Who knows how long that will be, But he will not get charged again. He he won't get tried again. How does something like this happen? So I mean, I can only speak to this specific facts of what happened here. What the Supreme Court. Pennsylvania's opinion was, But essentially what happened here was, um I guess there was a prior lawsuit. Over some of these allegations, And so as part of the lawsuit, Bill Cosby tried to assert his Fifth Amendment right right against self incrimination. And so at the time, the prosecutor's office said, No, We're not going to prosecute you for these charges. So you cannot assert your Fifth Amendment right because there is no possibility. Of criminal charges. So therefore you can't you can't assert your right against against incriminate yourself because there's nothing criminal. That's a possibility. Um So then he was forced to testify and in the civil case in his deposition, my understanding is there was a multi million dollar settlement from that case of some kind. And then the, uh the prosecutor, the person who's in charge of office changed And so, the subsequent prosecutor said, No, we are going to bring charges. And so of course, they brought. These charges that led to a trial also led to a conviction. And so what The Supreme Court has said here was You can't do that. So you're the the subsequent prosecutor had to respect the decision of the prior prosecutor, and because he, uh, relied upon the assertion that there would not be criminal charges brought in his civil deposition. And was forced to essentially incriminate himself in that deposition, or possibly possibly, right, possibly incriminate himself. Um, that you can't then go. He was basically granted immunity. You can't then go and withdraw that immunity after he's already testified. And then use that again and use it against him. Wow. So they basically said, you know, when the prosecutor originally told him that we're not bringing charges that is binding, and therefore not only is this conviction thrown out But you cannot bring new charges against Bill Cosby. That's incredible. I mean, just the fact that they I mean, weren't that careful dealing with all this. It just feels like You know the devil's in the details, right? And it seems like they they kind of flipped on a lot of details here. Yeah, obviously, we don't know what went into that decision to not prosecute initially. And allow him to testify in the civil case. Um, and if they didn't think there was enough evidence to bring the charges at that point in time, and maybe there wasn't maybe they didn't have all the facts at that time. Maybe they made that decision with having without having all the facts. Um or baby it was due to a celebrity status. We won't know what the underlying reasoning was, of course, as to why they said they would not prosecute him for those charges. That that point in time. Obviously, that changed But you know, in most cases when there's a new prosecutor in the state of Florida called state attorneys, right when they come in, they are supposed to respect the charging decisions of the prior. State attorney or prosecutor, because It's really the office that's bringing those charges, not the individual who's running the office at the time. It's the office itself as a whole. And so it does need to have some uniformity to it. When you're As it proceeds, so just because the the head of it changes so to speak, doesn't mean that then you go get to go back and read, reevaluate charging decisions that were made or not made before or immunity in this case really immunity that was granted previously. Um and then take that away, especially with someone detrimentally relied on it. Wow. All right, So there you go. That was interesting. Glad you're able to break that down for us because I was a little curious. I mean, was something that I don't know anyone was really expecting. Not at all. No came out of left field and frankly, I hadn't really been following the story, um at all, until until this opinion came out from the Supreme Court. So, yeah. Otherwise, uh, definitely seem to come out of left field as far as I'm concerned. Yeah. Oh, my gosh. Alright, let's let's transition here because we do have some emails that I want to get to hear. Um, first one coming in. I have a quick question. My ex wife for six years now has had a minivan that is in my name. She was supposed to get my name off in after the boar divorce, and she has not. Do I have a right to take the van? Short answer. No. Um, but I'll give a little bit longer Answer so usually in a divorce decree. Um Each party will keep their vehicles. They're supposed to transfer them into their name. And they agree to indemnify and hold the party harmless. So if in this case of the vehicle still in your name, you have to bring an enforcement action to force her to transfer it over. But you can't just go and take the vehicle back doesn't work that way. And then you would be in violation of the agreement. It wouldn't necessarily be theft because the title still probably in your name, but You can't just go back and take it back. That's not what the agreement says. The agreement says she's supposed to put it in her name. And so you have to. If she refuses to do that, you have to then go to court and and file an enforcement action to force her to do it. And there may be very good reason to do that, because Um, if she were to get in a car accident where she was at fault, because the titles and your name you're going to get so is my thought. Yeah, Yeah, so we've seen there's been a lot of high profile cases like that. Um, but there is a law school professor who still sticks out of my mind to this day where he repeatedly told us handing someone the keys to your Your vehicle is like handing them a loaded gun, and that's obviously a bit of an exaggeration. But what he meant is basically you're fully liable if if they get in a car accident or what they do if you remember a number of years ago Hulk Hogan's son actually got a very bad car..
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
"bill cosby" Discussed on Court TV Podcast
"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.

"Not been as draconian. The answer to that lies in the concurring dissenting opinion. So here's here's what they say. They say that there was a violation of bill. Cosby's constitutional rights that is due process. Rights were violated but it didn't occur at the point in time that the majority says it occurred. It occurred at trial when that civil deposition testimony was introduced by the prosecution because it was the state who essentially caused that evidence to come into existence by making that promise not to prosecute and then taking that testimony. He gave believing there was no chance he could be dragged into criminal court and then using those statements in criminal court and the crew incurring incurring dissenting opinion. Says look the remedy isn't no prosecution. it's just suppressed. The dep testimony. And i am so with this opinion. I would love to hear you are too. Because i think you know it's like don't throw the baby out with the bathwater which is not use that that testimony in really the state only needed it for count number three. They didn't even need it for counts one into and really this could have been done with one count so in other words. Instead of barring any future prosecution allow prosecutors to retry the case. But you can't use the evidence from the deposition that bill cosby gave as a result of relying upon the promise not to prosecute make some sense to me and they went all the way all right when we come back what i want you to do julie grant because you were in the courtroom. You got to hear this now. Pennsylvania's one of those states. That i know you're from pennsylvania but i don't like pennsylvania julie because they don't like cameras.

The corruption montgomery county with crooked crooked. Judge stealing o'neal unbelievable. Unbelievable bill cosby set free and then afterwards pointing the finger a crooked. Da a crooked judge in montgomery county pennsylvania. Okay so there were two trials here and the the accuser the victim andrea constand had to testify and it was a big part of the case. Julie grant was inside the courtroom. No cameras no microphone. So julie give us an idea of what this testimony was like what this evidence was like what this jury heard because ultimately that second jury believed her beyond any and all reasonable doubt absolutely right many as they should have in my opinion and i brought with me today to come on your podcast show notes that i took during the first trial when i was sitting in the courtroom reporting on the case i typed up pages upon pages of notes on andrea constanze testimony and i can remember it was like you could hear pin-drop when she walked into the courtroom. I mean just complete silence. She was very imposed. Came off very matter of fact came off very believable. Very authentic didn't come off as dramatic. Didn't come off as exaggerating. Just came off as being very truthful. And she would concede if she was mistaken about something and she was very descriptive. In when i. When i went back looking at this the when i found out i was gonna come on the podcast and talk with you about this. It reminded me of some other things that were just so disgusting. That i have forgotten about from. I mean this happened in two thousand seventeen spring of two thousand seventeen and i have some quotes from her and when she talks about him she she described him to. The jury is being figure somebody who was a mentor to him that she trusted greatly and she was at temple and she was. She was heading up the women's basketball program their and that's touch. You got to know bill cosby because at the time he was revered at temple university revered in philadelphia i mean he was not only the man in america but especially the man there and she felt really special that he paid attention to her in such a way that it was like a mentioned mentorship he so she saw him as an older figure in her life. Kind of like a dad like figure that she really really valued his opinion and they would have long talks and things and when this incident happened it was in sometime around the beginning of two thousand four and she had gone to his home to talk about her career. She's very stressed and she said that. At one point in the conversation he went upstairs. Came back down to the kitchen and had three blue pills and he said put them down there your friends. They'll take the edge off and she said i are these herbal and he said yes there were able when she said. Okay i trust. Do take the pills. And so she swallowed them and she said shortly after she was seeing double her mouth felt like cotton. She didn't even have the strength to walk from the kitchen table to the couch. And this is a very athletic woman at didn't even have that strength and she was panicking but said that she couldn't leave. She knew she wouldn't be able to drive. And he encouraged her lay down on the couch and That was when she said that she was jolted awake. Feeling bill cosby groping her breasts underneath her shirt feeling his hand inside her vagina moving in and out. She felt him take her hand. Place it on his penis and move it back and forth in all this was going on. She said i wasn't able to tell him to stop or push them away in a quarter directly here. She said quote in my head. I was trying to get my hands to move or my legs to move. I was frozen in those messages. Didn't get there. I was very limp. I wasn't able to fight him in any way. I wanted it to stop. And she was looking so sad giving that testimony fighting back tears and since you ultimate felt humiliated and very confused that somebody should trust it so much would do this to her and became even more sickening vinnie. When i was reviewing these notes. I forgot about something really really atrocious. That happened after the fact when she said he was always hard to get a hold up it was hard to get him on the phone but finally when she did there was a time where they met up to speak and she asked him what he gave her at his house and his reply was. I thought you had an orgasm. didn't you. and she was extremely upset. He would not say what he gave her. She felt like it was so disturbing and it was such a big burden on our. She said she didn't have the courage to even tell her family at the time. She was so petrified and so upset. She had gone back to canada where she's from and then finally in mid january in the following year. She was having such bad nightmares. She confided in her mother and told her that bill cosby sexually violated her gave her three blue pills. She didn't consent to it and just could not cake holding in that awful secret anymore and so that was when her mother than got a hold of bill cosby the three of them were on the phone and at one point. It was the same thing. They were confronting him about it and at that time he did apologize to her and her mother but then in the same phone call many he said to her mother will he.

"bill cosby" Discussed on The Breakdown with Shaun King
"So he wasn't released on a technicality. I don't even think that you can say. He bought his way out of prison. No no i don't believe that's true either. Did he have attorneys. Who were able to argue this before the supreme court and does that make him a person of means. Yeah of course definitely but he didn't buy his way out of out of prison. That's not what happened. It was a it was a probably. I would think a very difficult decision from the supreme court to do such a thing but it was the prosecution. I would call that prosecutorial misconduct. It was misconduct. I mean that's how you throw out a conviction is that the supreme court determined. It was misconduct. Does that mean that. he's innocent. Absolutely not does it. Mean that he is legally not guilty criminally. It does mean that in means that he is criminally not convicted. Here's probably. I hate to end on a gross snow. Here's probably the grossest thing. Bill cosby is going to sue the county and the state for his. I guess you could call it a wrongful conviction. He will sue them for the misconduct. I don't think it's a wrongful conviction. He was not exonerated and in the supreme court was clear not to say that and and when there is an exoneration excuse me when there is an exoneration they will say such a thing but he'll probably sue them and he could win because there was misconduct there which is crazy. Bill cosby admitted multiple times over multiple decades to giving women what's called date rape drugs and then performing sex acts on it has admitted that in anybody denying it is lying. He admitted it. You know he admitted it and if you don't know he admitted it it's either because you're willfully ignorant or did not do your research or You are thinking. He admitted these things in didn't actually mean them. I have no idea. He admitted it just horrible. And it's why the work we do it. Real justice is so important because we believe in electing ethical district attorneys who run smart fair just systems. And that's often that we get in this country particularly when it pertains to crimes against women and In other marginalized groups what a day It is thursday july first and they are multiple supreme court decisions.

"Ago. Simple solution of paying athletes in college. The question was like how much do you pay. Football players versus women feel hockey players volleyball players track or hammer-throwers in college. You play a basketball player duke the same as you pay a hammer thrower at westfield state of course not well. This is a natural way to reward the ones who have more value. They can sell their themselves their image their autograph. You know their celebrity. They can sell it and they can make money if you're a hammer thrower at westfield state you probably can't if you're the quarterback in alabama you probably can you know what that means. This is a big breakthrough right. Athletes can cash him. How many days turtle boy till we find out from meghan rappeneau or glenn berry or some angry young female athlete that it's just not fair. It's just not family. Look at those those basketball players at kansas. They're making all kinds of money and we feel hockey players at At evergreen state we got nothing. Their system is unjust. we need equity. You might see that today so you might see that today. Like who's making more money than meghan rappeneau. Who's more marketable than her. On the free market. This is the beauty of this. All is like you're the free market is going to determine how much athletes are paid. And that's a beautiful thing you're gonna literally gonna get paid. What people are willing to pay for you if you're if you're autograph is worth something if you're endorsements where something than that's what you're worth. That's not equity turtle boy. I'm sorry that's not equity than you have. Lots of female athletes who generate zero revenue. Who bring in zero fans who are An expense a drain on the budget as opposed to the basketball football team who are paying for everything. Those women will say. This isn't fair. And what do you think the media. What the here's what's going to happen when they say it's unfair. Jerry nike is going to have a campaign in higher. Like the you know. The shooting guard from baylor women's team or whoever they're frigging shoplift thrower from texas a. Am they're going to be in a frigging commercial. They're going to hire them so that's what they're gonna do. The corporations are all woke now so they are going to start sponsoring these women. You probably right. I'm not sure how that works. Technically with the ncaa. But i wish they would. Just go on merit and see who you get paid. What you're worth in the market the free market which again will not make people like meghan wrapping. Oh by the way. She makes a fortune turtle boy. It's not enough. She demands to make the men make even the men. In one hundred times more revenue. That's your thing saying we're not treated fairly. And i just read this gwen. Bury the new darling of the woke left of the. You know the cabinet crab. She has a contract with puma. They pay her fifteen thousand dollars. I believe fifteen thousand nuts and sound like a lot and they outfitter and she wears puma stuff you know when she's not wearing angry activists t shirts on her head. She's wearing puma Tell me they get their money's worth for that. What is puma. get from having this angry america. Hayden hammer-thrower on their payroll. It's just like you said it's just woke corporations given money to to to woke athletes. There's no there's no investment there there's no return on investment But she's She's getting her dan the son she's going to get her Her whatever fifteen minutes but you know. It's funny to see yesterday when they dug out that picture of her on her own website holding up the american flag. Oh yes oh yes bless america. That's what happened in the last two years. you know. that's a. That's your brain on critical race theory exactly exactly. That's an athlete after getting brainwashed. By all the usual the joy reads in. Hebron kennedy rub. Andy angelo's out there. They work on someone. Like i two years and what. You get is another catholic. I understand like you know the chinese and the in the north korean athletes. They're not they can't dissent. They can't do that right. But here's my question. Why doesn't how come we never see french. Athletes or english athletes other western nations like pampered. People like us. How can we never see their athletes protesting their flags good question. We see them kneeling at the soccer tournaments. They're protesting america when they do that. They're protesting us. They never protest their own countries. How we're the only ones who have such ingrates such and gratitude. i mean these people are despicable. They're encouraged by the media. Maybe the media in france. Germany don't encourage a holes like kapernick gwen berry to piss on their own flag or dump on their own car when you're smaller when you're belgium you have pride in belgium because there's not many of you and so you're you're the international stage but yeah village it. Yeah fricking loved belgium. And you're going to have so much that you're not going to disrespect belgium whereas america's an empire and we're the bad guys like you. You're the top dog.

I'm not sure what the punishment is. But you can't do it in tokyo in three weeks when when this whole thing starts and when gwen berry by the way the big big girl in the middle Deanna price is like the best in the world and is one or two others but she could win the gold. She could set a world record shields. The american record she'll do that and gwen burial finished seventeenth and get all the attention. It'll be another one of those deals with gwen. Berry will say. I got screwed. It's racist systemic. Racism olympic committee judges or whatever the she'll she'll have all kinds of excuses all the attention because jamaica somebody you can imagine the jamaican bobsled team did that you respect. They could even fund their own olympic program jerry and like what the stock market systemic racism attacked a in sick and i know people sick of already. But she's an idiot. She's been interviewed. She's a dope and she's making money not just from puma but from the american taxpayers to dump on the flag to dump on this country to say she's playing she's competing for black people not for americans just for black people. That's what she's going to tokyo to for to compete to win for her people. Not americans black people she. It's just so twisted and you're right critical race theory and the race hustler's out. There have done this if divided people in poisoned the minds of people like her. But we will see. I'm sick of her anyway. I'm sick of her already. But we'll leave it there.

I think the set. The kind of pathetic thing was people in his team on his team like pretending he's innocent. We've got past that. How do you pretend he's innocent. How can you do that when the the case the case fell apart. Or the the overturn. The spring court's decision was based on the fact that he confessed he confessed and the reason he confessed. As the prosecutor allegedly told him he wouldn't be criminally prosecuted if he would confess in the civil case. So that's what he did he confessed. So how can you. whether you're phyllis rashad or your andrew wider. Is you know this pathetic wife. How can you sit there and say this is a great of an injustice was right in or overturned and an innocent man is free when he already admitted he's not innocent.

I wasn't he defiant towards the judge to when he was sentenced yes and he could have gotten. I was just reading about this. He was. I think he was denied.

"Take a look at it and make sure that it passes constitutional muster and that's that's that's ultimately the the way that our system is as good as it is. It's not perfect. It never will be perfect. It can't be perfect because humans are involved and we are not perfect but it makes our system fairer and it makes our verdicts. Ultimately truer when issues are tested on appeal. When either the actions of the prosecutors or the decisions and rulings by a judge are put under a microscope and they need to be. And i invite that and i think it's important because sometimes our system may be doing something wrong. Something unfair something that could lead to a wrongful conviction and as a prosecutor one who ultimately wants to seek the truth and only the truth not convictions. But the truth we should want that type of scrutiny. And i invite it and i think it's great for our system. So criminal appeals when a lot of people are like. Oh oh he's going to appeal it. This is awful. No this is good. This is good for our system. It's a cleansing of our system. So when things go wrong it gets cleared up and at the end of the day. If it's an issue in a case where someone is factually guilty right. The actually committed the crime like believe. Bill cosby did. But let's say the judge's ruling is not constitutional that he somehow abused his discretion and the trial was not fair. Then we'll do it again. We will do it again and will use the evidence that we need because we don't want prosecutors to be able to use arguments or evidence that could some way down the road lead to a wrongful conviction. that's the ultimate test. And that's the way. Michael sterling hit the nail on the head today. I can't believe i'm quoting him now. This guy is in my head. Michael sterling is in my head now. This is crazy.

"You get to cross examine them. It's not like they just go in there and tell their story. I mean bill cosby and his attorneys can can go after these prior bad act. Witnesses and attack their story and and scrutinize it and pick it apart in front the jury. If in fact it's not true and tested the but kind of creates what what the chief justice supreme court of pennsylvania said is it creates a really trial on a collateral issue. And he doesn't have a meaningful opportunity to investigate what they did. I was actually trying that separate case. Then our ask questions. Did you have a drug test. You know was a rape kit done whether other things done. I can't go back thirty years and get that information. So yeah you get to cross examine. But you don't get the you're you're basically trying a separate case on a collateral issue when you really need to be focused on the main issue at hand and you know the more that happens to you in this case five. Different women you know. I just do not believe you're gonna be able to separate a juror. Even even at george trying to harvest and being conscientious about there are going to have a hard time. Saying you know these other. Four times. But i don't believe he did this. You know it just it. It is going to use it for propensity even even with the best jury instructions. While here's the problem for prosecutors right in a case like this where the defense is consent are right. The act happened. So there's no forensic evidence that's gonna prove one way or the other right. The forensic evidence doesn't doesn't exist here. It's not like he's saying we did not have that sort of sexual contact. The question is was it. Consensual or non consensual she saying nonconsensual and what the defense is doing is attacking her credibility right and this is a he said she said but he's not going to say anything because he's not going to take the witness stand so they're just going to attack attack her her right. So isn't one way for the jury to understand. Well is she telling the truth not telling the truth well. Her story sounds a lot like this other story. And this other story and this other story so it really bolsters the credibility of her story which is being attacked. I mean blistering like all on full on mode in going after andrea constand. Yeah i mean. Look but that's exactly why you're not supposed to use it..

"Not to prosecute never ever is. He denied the ability to assert his fifth amendment privilege. Why didn't he do that. And i kept thinking like yes. Great question because you and i have talked about this on your curriculum show at night. And many times like he had a team of lawyers sitting there with him throughout that process during the civil deposition and he just spilled it all without having something in writing without something from the court. That's a real shame you know in an truly. I feel sorry in that respect for him. If this was based on the bad advice of counsel. I i shame on those attorneys if they didn't go about this the proper way. Shame on them. Because i'm sure they were paid lots and lots and lots of money certainly doesn't excuse the predatory and i'm talking predatory sexually assaulted behavior. That took place with him a but to that issue the justices seemed like look. This wasn't in in writing And one other question that was posed to the the prosecution's attorney was will what about the fact that things changed when the offices changed. I thought that was a good question to that was posed by justice. Wecht and he said that. Look if your word is your bond than what message does that send. And i thought that was a really great question. Because when the administration was the castro administration. Bill cosby safe. No charges were coming. And then when kevin steele the current. Da took over and really ran on that platform that was part of the political race in two thousand fifteen vinnie. Then things changed. And i thought the response was very good from the commonwealth's attorney and he said you know in that. Press release even. Da counter said look. We will certainly revisit this issue if new information is learned were essentially reserving the right to revisit this. This isn't an end. all be all so to speak. It seems more like bill cosby should be in court with his first defense team. Right hand with the commonwealth. I mean and and it's too bad you know bad. Sorry but you know you. You said what you said. You did what you did. You didn't lie about it. And it is what it is so as as the justices are questioning them though on the prior bad act witnesses and there were nineteen women who came forward right who prosecutors wanted to use. The judge said You can use five out of eight that they said we're okay right so yes there were. There were only five out of nineteen that were presented. Any of the justices have a problem with the number of prior bad act. Witnesses will yes and that was where a lot of this strong questioning team that i felt like it was really tough on the commonwealth. In one of the questions raised was. Why did you need five..

"So they're always a thief that's propensity evidence. No but if you have a specific exception it here. In bill cosby's case the prosecution used to different exceptions to get into evidence. The testimony of other accusers and so one of them was. They said there was a common scheme or plan. And we're talking about identical. Nearly identical. I should say instances of conduct and a common design with with the scheme so much so that they're so closely similar that it looks like the criminal has kinda be signature move or signature way of carrying out the crime so the common schemer plan was one in the second one was absence of mistake and this was rooted in a bill. Cosby's defense team always said with the accusation from victim andrea constand. Who was the victim on the indictment that was charged that this was conduct. That was consensual. So the absence of mistake exception comes in were. They're using all these other examples to say. Oh no no no no. There's no way This was a mistake here and there was concern. Your because guess what this happened to all these other women nearly identical circumstances so now was issue number one issue number two dealt with defense team saying that this case should have never been prosecuted in the first place because they said that there was this immunity agreement that was promised to bill cosby way back when in two thousand four the case came in by the former. Da reuss caster but that agreement was never written down. It was never formalized by accords which is the way it has to be properly done the prosecutor. Kansas handover immunity to have to have the court sign off on the issue that immunity and never written down nothing like that. We just mentioned in a press. Release that the office in montgomery county. The da's office there was making a decision not to prosecute him and based on that Bill cosby saying he relied to his detriment on that promise he talked in a civil deposition talked about giving women quay lewd in order to have sex with them and then fast forwards years later when a new. Da is in office. The fall of two thousand fifteen new da kevin steele takes over and fouls charges just before the statute of limitations expired against bill are set to expire. I should say against bill cosby. So those are the two and relying and relying in part on. Those statements made by cosby as new found evidence. Okay so we've got the two issues we've got all these other women who say okay. He did the same thing to me. And the same way to a certain extent right. It's it's the use of some sort of a pill whether it's a lewd or something else to immobilize women out and then sexually assault them okay.
