Cosby’s Own Words Made Me Think He Was Guilty, Says Juror
A juror in the Bill Cosby trial, which saw the comedy icon found guilty of sexual assault, has spoken out about his experience and said Cosby’s own words convinced the jury he was guilty. Juror No. 1, named by ABC News as Harrison Snyder, said he was unsure about Cosby’s guilt when he first entered the courtroom, but that changed when he heard the comedian speak. Asked when he became sure of Cosby’s guilt, Snyder said: “I think it was his deposition, really. Mr. Cosby admitted to giving these Quaaludes to women, young women, in order to have sex with them.” Cosby was convicted Thursday of drugging and molesting Temple University employee Andrea Constand at his suburban Philadelphia mansion in 2004. The comedian, 80, faces a maximum prison sentence of 15 to 30 years.
