  • Bill Cosby is mentally preparing himself for prison

Kristen Feden and Stewart Ryan spoke to The Associated Press on Sunday about the almost three-year journey from reopening the case to last Thursday's verdict and how they restructured their approach after last year's hung jury. "I don't think it necessarily mattered that these other five women were here". "Mr. Cosby admitted to giving Quaaludes to women, young women, in order to have sex with them".

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.

But unlike the proceedings previous year, where deliberations dragged on for 52 hours and jurors described a tense atmosphere during the discussions, Snyder told ABC News on Monday (Tuesday NZT) that there was no dissension in the jury room this time and that all members of were quickly able to get on the same page.

That admission, which the actor made when he was facing a civil lawsuit, had also been a key piece of evidence for prosecutors in Cosby's first trial on the charges, which ended past year with that jury unable to reach a verdict. He stated on Cosby, "I think it was his deposition, really".

The report adds: "His attorneys might still be squawking about innocence and appeals, but Bill Cosby is mentally preparing himself for prison".

The guilty verdict came less than a year after another jury deadlocked on the charges.

Then-District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman reopened the Cosby investigation in July 2015 after a federal judge, acting on a request from the AP, unsealed portions of Cosby's deposition testimony from a civil lawsuit he settled with Constand in 2006 for $3.4 million.

Snyder revealed that some people believe he made the right decision, where as others allegedly think the star is still innocent.

Going into the retrial, there was a question as to whether the #MeToo and Time's Up movements against sexual abuse would factor into Cosby's case. "And I just tell them if you were there, you would say the same thing - you would say that he's guilty".

The Cosby jury issued a statement saying its decision was not influenced in any way by factors other than what was seen and heard in the courtroom. Now that that 80-year-old has been found guilty, the publication has released some of Cosby's quotes. "Not once were race or the #MeToo movement ever discussed, nor did either factor into our decision". "I didn't even really know about the #MeToo movement".
