Bill Cosby's spokespeople said he will deliver educational talks teaching young people how to behave to avoid sexual assault allegations, leading to harsh criticism from a number of victims' advocacy groups.
In his interview with the Inquirer, the anonymous juror added that he thinks Cosby has already "paid dearly" and should not be retried in the Constand case - "It would be a waste of Montgomery [County] money with the money it cost" - and said that he thinks "more than half" of the over 60 other women who have also accused Cosby of sexual assault made up their stories and "jumped on the bandwagon". In a series of comments made after the announcement, Allred accused Cosby of attempting to influence the jury pool ahead of his retrial.
Lecturing isn't new for Cosby. A mistrial was declared, but Cosby was not acquitted of the charges brought against him. Don't commit sexual assault. "But if he does do them then the best advice he can give to those attending is that if you do not drug and sexually assault women, then you need not worry about being charged with a crime".
According to TMZ, Cosby's representatives Andrew Wyatt and Ebonee Benson announced the news on Good Day Alabama, and said, "This issue can affect any young person. and they need to know what they're facing when they're hanging out and partying, when they're doing certain things that they shouldn't be doing". "I will repeat. These town hall meetings are not about sexual assault". "And it's. a good thing to be educated about the law".
Cosby is not only going to tell you how to avoid sexual assault situations, he's also going to tell you about the laws. Rhimes' response is ideal, and sums up exactly why Bill Cosby shouldn't be organising Town Hall meetings. While almost 60 women have publicly accused Cosby of sexual assault over several decades - all of which his legal team has denied - only the allegations of Andrea Constand have led to criminal charges. A former Temple University employee alleges that the entertainer drugged and molested her in 2004 at his home in suburban Philadelphia.
A juror in Bill Cosby's sexual assault trial said Thursday that some jurors were concerned that prosecutors waited 10 years to charge him, expressing suspicion that politics had played a role in the case.
"They feel that the young men and women need to be aware that Mr. Cosby was given a deal to never be criminally charged" in the Andrea Constand case, he said. In the meantime, it appears Cosby will continue remain as divisive a public figure as ever.
