A juror in the sexual assault retrial of Bill Cosby is discussing his decision, saying the comedian’s own words from years ago in court lead to his conviction.
Harrison Snyder, 22, said he and his fellow jurors spent 12 hours deliberating on the case, but it was words uttered by Cosby himself that lead to their ultimate decision.
“It was his deposition, really. Mr. Cosby admitted to giving these Quaaludes to women, young women, in order to have sex with them,” Snyder said, according to Yahoo News, in an interview with “Good Morning America.”
“In the deposition, he stated that he gave these drugs to other women. I don’t think it really necessarily mattered that these other five women were here, because he said it himself. That he used these drugs on other women,” Snyder continued, also saying that the jurors were instructed to use facts alone to make their decision.
“Some have said that I made the right decision, and some people have said that they still think that he’s innocent,” said the juror, who also said, “If you were there, you would say the same thing. You would say that he’s guilty.”
The 80-year-old Cosby was convicted on three felony counts of aggravated indecent assault last Thursday Pennsylvania.
“I didn’t really even know about the #MeToo movement. I really only found out about after I got home,” he added. “Then I looked online to see what everything was.”
Snyder was among the seven men and five women serving as jurors on the case. He said his age kept him emotionally uninvolved with the Cosby suit.
