Bill Cosby trial juror says he has 'no doubt' jury came to the right conclusion

Cosby juror: I was convinced by comedy icon's deposition

The first member of the jury that convicted Bill Cosby last week to speak publicly said Monday that he found the comedy icon's own words to be the most compelling evidence against him.

During an interview on breakfast show Good Morning America, Snyder insisted he "didn't know anything" about the case before the trial, as he never watches the news, and confessed he only knew Cosby was an actor, but was a "little too young" to remember his groundbreaking 1980s sitcom The Cosby Show.

Though Snyder said he believed the five other Cosby accusers - including supermodel and reality TV staple Janice Dickinson - to testify at the trial, he added that their accounts did not factor into his decision. Jurors said race and the #MeToo movement were never discussed.

After Mr. Cosby's first trial, Ms. Feden, who is married to another lawyer and has two young sons, took a job at the Philadelphia law firm Stradley Ronon.

At 80 years old, Cosby is reportedly "mentally preparing" to head to prison despite the appeals.

"That was the most sickening part of this all", she said. "I knew he was an actor". He said he was barely familiar with the accusations that Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted dozens of women.

Cosby now faces 10 years in prison on each count. "Not as soon as had been race or the #metoo motion ever mentioned, nor did both issue into our choice, as implied in numerous media shops". His publicist called the conviction a "public lynching".

Despite the positive quarterly report, the shares of M3 fell by 6.83% after the corporation downgraded its annual profit forecast. Other technology stocks in the FAANG group, Facebook , Amazon .com Inc and Netflix Inc, also weighed on the Nasdaq.

In addition to Cosby's deposition, Snyder said that an expert witness played a role as well.

Following the guilty verdict at the retrial, Cosby was ordered to remain in his home until a sentence is handed down.

The investigation into Cosby was reopened in July 2015 after a federal judge, acting on a request from The Associated Press, unsealed portions of Cosby's deposition testimony from a civil lawsuit he settled with his accuser, Andrea Constand, in 2006 for almost $3.4 million.

"I really only found out about it after I got home".

"After thoughtful and meticulous consideration of the information and evidence provided to us, we came to our unanimous verdict", the jury said in the statement.

Snyder's sentiments on Cosby's deposition echoed similar statements from some jurors in the entertainer's first trial, which ended in a mistrial and hung jury in June.
