Bill Cosby Put On House Arrest With GPS monitor

Three-and-a-half years before Cosby's conviction in a Philadelphia comedy club Buress mocked Cosby's smug preachiness and called him a rapist during his act Bill Cosby's team calls his sexual assault trial a 'public lynching' as he's ordered to wear a GPS monitor and stay under house arrest until he is sentenced

Actor and comedian Bill Cosby (C) leaves the courthouse in Norristown outside Philadelphia, after being found guilty of sexual assault.

The panel of seven men and five women had been deliberating about 14 hours over two days before reaching a verdict.

She said he had given her three blue pills to "help take the edge off", which she believed to be a natural remedy.

Cosby did not testify in his own defence.

During her testimony, Lotte-Lublin said she spoke to Cosby directly at times. "I feel like I have to pinch myself". I wanted to have them as my neighbours, my friends, my doctor.

Former federal prosecutor Priya Sopori says she thinks this trial provides some insight into how juries will now view cases against high-profile men.

We're certain his victims and their supporters stand in the knowledge that today's verdict was a huge step forward for the movement and for victims of sexual assault everywhere. "I trusted him because he's 'America's Dad'".

April. 29: Top prosecutor Montgomery County Assistant District Attorney Kristen Feden, in the sexual assault case against U.S. comedian and actor Bill Cosby, said she was "filled with awe" after securing a conviction.

Montgomery County prosecutors at the time declined to file charges against Cosby.

The retrial in April 2018 revealed the allegation that Cosby had paid Ms Constand £2.4million in a 2006 civil settlement. Cosby did not admit any wrongdoing in the case. In it, he admitted giving women drugs for the objective of having sex.

That deposition would remain secret for nearly a decade.

Richard Klein, a criminal law professor at the Touro Law Center, agrees that this conviction will encourage prosecutors to pursue more sexual assault cases. The latest trial also included the testimonies of five other women who were allegedly also assaulted by Cosby on different occasions. He strongly denied the allegations, and accused the women of making up the stories.


Ms Constand reported the attack, but the district attorney refused to press charges. There were angry and profane words from the 80-year-old defendant.

Constand, a 45-year-old Canadian former basketball player turned massage therapist, sat in court to witness the moment when Cosby was reduced to a convicted sex offender staring prison in the face. Cosby's lawyers slammed #MeToo, calling Cosby its victim and likening it to a witch hunt or a lynching.

In Could 2016, District Decide Elizabeth McHugh dominated there was ample proof to carry Cosby to trial after dozens of ladies raised related claims and, in a deposition, Cosby admitted to giving Ms Constand tablets. She and several other women went out into the courtroom hallway, embracing and crying tears of joy.

Lublin chose to go to the police, but officers told her there was nothing they could do. "I couldn't move, I felt like I was rendered motionless".

He said the judge's decision to allow the "prior bad acts" testimony could have tainted the jury. "It didn't buy you out of a criminal prosecution", she says. His lawyer Tom Mesereau declared "the fight is not over" and said he will appeal.

"We are vindicated. We are validated, and we are now part of the tsunami of women's power and justice".

Cosby must also wear a Global Positioning System monitoring device under the order issued Friday by Judge Steven O'Neill.

'I think that his lawyers have a very real chance at overturning the verdict, ' said Christopher Adams, a defense attorney whose clients have included former National Basketball Association star Jayson Williams.

Cosby's publicists Ebonee Benson and Andrew Wyatt defended the defamed comedian just one day after he was found guilty on three counts of sexual assault. He cursed in court, then went silent.

Lotte-Lublin said she didn't drink much but that, after Cosby insisted, she accepted. "He brought it to me and said, 'have this drink, it will help to relax you.' And I had told him 'I don't drink, ' and he said, 'this is just a little bit'".

"I think he'll ask the court and do whatever he needs to, to have his client remain out at liberty until these issues are decided, whether it was appropriate to allow all those accusers to testify, and how prejudicial and unfair would that be", Jackson said.
