Juror Says Bill Cosby Admission of Giving Women Quaaludes Caused His Conviction

Bill Cosby is mentally preparing himself for prison

Last week, Snyder and his fellow jurors convicted Cosby on three counts of aggravated indecent assault in the drugging and sexual assault of Andrea Constand in 2004.

"I think it was his deposition, really", said Harrison Snyder, 22, of Montgomery County, in an interview with ABC News.

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

And, Snyder, said, the testimony of five other accusers who testified was not necessary for the conviction.

Prosecutors used Cosby's statements - which confirmed much of Constand's story and referenced his use of drugs in sexual encounters with other women - against him at both trials.

Judge Steven O'Neill's court crier called Ryan with the news that a verdict was in around lunchtime, about 14 hours after jurors started deliberating.

The jurors deliberated for nearly 15 hours over two days before announcing the verdict, and on Monday (30Apr18), jury member Harrison Snyder explained it was Cosby's own words which sealed his fate in the criminal retrial.

"I really only found out about it after I got home then I looked online to see what everything was", he said. "I'm a little too young for that".

Starting XI: Real Madrid v Leganes
The home squad took the advantage into the locker room at halftime. "He scored a fantastic goal, and he's a fighter". Sociedad midfielder Ruben Pardo was sent off near the end only a few minutes after being substituted in.

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.

The prosecutors who put Bill Cosby away say they're confident the conviction at his suburban Philadelphia sexual-assault retrial will stand.

Snyder even said he didn't even know what the #MeToo movement is, that it consists of celebrities coming forward and outing those who have allegedly sexually assaulted them. Snyder was referring to Cosby's testimony in a lawsuit filed against him more than a decade ago by Andrea Constand, a case that Cosby eventually settled for $3.4 million.

He revealed that some agree Cosby is guilty, but others have told them they are still convinced he is innocent. You would say that he's guilty'.

"After thoughtful and meticulous consideration of the information and evidence provided to us, we came to our unanimous verdict", the jury said.

Cosby is facing a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison; ten years for each conviction.

Interestingly enough, the jurors also released an official statement and said the recent #MeToo movement was not an influencing factor as it wasn't discussed at all during the deliberation. They said race and the #MeToo movement were never discussed.
