“I go inside her pants,” he said. “I move my fingers. I do not talk. She doesn’t talk. But she makes a sound which I feel was an orgasm.”
The real-life Mr. Cosby went further, fashioning himself as a moral scold and frequently criticizing the black community for falling short of his ideas of virtue. In a 2004 speech to the NAACP he went after out-of-wedlock births, deadbeat dads, sagging pants and more.
Mr. Cosby’s lawyers made the argument their client was not a public person; Judge Robreno argued that he was — and not “by virtue of the exercise of his trade as televised or comedic personality” but because he had “donned the mantle of public morality and mounted the proverbial electronic or print soap box.”
"criticizing the black community"
A spokeswoman for Cosby's wife, Camille, delivered a statement blasting the prosecution, judge and media:
"How do I describe the district attorney? Heinously and exploitively ambitious. How do I describe the judge? Overtly and arrogantly collaborating with the district attorney. How do I describe the counsels for the accusers? Totally unethical. How do I describe many, but not all, general media? Blatantly vicious entities that continually disseminated intentional omissions of truths for the primary purpose of greedily selling sensationalism at the expense of a human life."
In a tense cross-examination, the defense pointed out that several of Constand's initial statements to police, including the date of the alleged assault, were false.
Constand initially told police she had not been alone with Cosby before the alleged assault and that they had little contact afterward.
However, she admitted at the trial that she had been alone in a hotel room with Cosby beforehand and had 72 phone calls with him afterward.
She also asked Cosby's representatives for free tickets for her and her family to see Cosby's stand-up show in Toronto half a year after the alleged assault.
Jurors heard Cosby's side of the story -- but not in his voice. Prosecutors and police detectives read aloud portions of Cosby's statements to police in 2005 and in a civil deposition from 2006. In those interviews, Cosby admitted to sexual contact with Constand and said they had had a romantic encounter.
Shawn Upshaw is a woman who had briefly been Cosby's lover in Las Vegas during the early 1970s. Upshaw later told Cosby that he was the father of her daughter, Autumn Jackson. Cosby denies being the father.
Twenty-two-year-old Autumn Jackson was sentenced to 26 months in jail for trying to extort $40 million from Cosby. Both Jackson and Cosby stated at various times that they were willing to undergo DNA testing to determine Jackson's paternity. Cosby provided a blood sample for testing, but Jackson refused to participate until after her sentencing.
During Autumn Jackson's extortion trial in July 1997, Cosby testified that he made private payments to Shawn Upshaw. He said that he gave Upshaw a total of about $100,000 because he did not want her to publicly reveal the affair.
Steele wants me badly; he ran on getting me,” Cosby said at one point of the prosecutor, Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele.
“But he doesn’t have a case."
That’s why, Cosby claims he turned down the DA’s offer of a no-jail deal that would have meant he wear a monitoring bracelet and register as a sex offender.
The comedian refused the offer because he claimed that he’s innocent and referenced Nelson Mandela.
Bill, we know it's you.
I'm looking forward to you getting what's coming to you in November. Or at least the retrial. What's coming, ultimately, is an eternal hurricane of drug-induced delirium and spiked, flaming devil cocks ravaging your orifices.
Cosby has never been convicted of a rape....
