Bill Cosby Jury Member Says Guilty Verdict Based On Comedian's Own Words

"Yes", Cosby replied in the 2005 deposition.

Cosby settled Constand's civil suit for almost $3.4 million in 2006, and his lawyers claimed at trial that she had framed him for the money.

"When they send me to that place, I want you to be there to tell my story because it seems no one is listening, no one wants the real story", Cosby said.

"Some have said that I made the right decision, and some people have said that they still think that he's innocent", he said.

Although the jury found the actor guilty of three charges, Cosby's lawyers admit he plans to appeal the verdict, which could result in more trial time and additional testimony depending on how things go.

Five other accusers who took the stand, even though Cosby was not criminally charged with attacking them, were also credible, Snyder said.

Two days after Cosby's conviction, law books and papers were still strewn on a long table in the war room where prosecutors plotted their strategy: leading off with an expert to educate the jury in victim behavior, successfully fighting to call five additional accusers and fending off the defense's allegations that Constand was a scammer framing Cosby for a big payday.

"This is what they wanted", Cosby told the New York Post's Page Six after his conviction.

They claimed that then-D.A. Bruce Castor promised Cosby he would never be prosecuted in the Constand case and that this promise extended to all future holders of the district attorney's office.

The actor's statement was recorded more than a decade ago, as part of a civil suit Constand had filed against him and settled in 2006.

Cosby's animated series "Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids" further endeared Cosby to our culture, as he presented stories surrounding a group of friends who would, through their adventures, educate audiences - predominantly children as the program aired on Saturday mornings - about the importance of friendship, loyalty, acceptance, and that living a life of morality can be "cool".

Ultimately, the jury found the once beloved comedian guilty of three counts of aggravated indecent assault. "He used drugs for other women". The 80-year-old, who is reportedly suffering from several health issues and could face a maximum of 10 years in prison for each count, may receive special treatment should he be sentenced to prison.

'Certainly Mr. Cosby would be fine, ' she said.

Snyder, 22, said he was uncertain of Cosby's guilt before deliberating with the other jurors, believing it wasn't an open-and-shut case.

Snyder said that he was not necessarily set on a guilty verdict when he and the other jurors began their deliberations on Wednesday (Thursday NZT) but was quickly convinced as their discussion of the evidence began that Cosby had drugged and sexually assaulted Andrea Constand in 2004.
