@firefly,
It's too bad the charges came so late.

@cicerone imposter,
I definitely agree about that.

At least some of the women he abused can now feel they were finally listened to, and finally heard and believed.

@firefly,
It seems many sexual assault victims have waited based on past history, that they were not believed and belittled when they did report it. The numbers of convictions vs the numbers reported just didn't add up. https://www.rainn.org/statistics/criminal-justice-system

Are you talking about Jaunita Broderick? I am surprised the judge was not called racist for sentencing Cosby.

@coldjoint,
Actually, Cosby's spokesperson, Andrew Wyatt, called both his conviction and sentencing, and really the entire justice system involved, "racist" and "sexist". Guess that includes the judge.

Well, Cosby's week isn't getting any better.

Now he's being sued for about $283,000, by a law firm, for unpaid legal bills.

And, now that he is in a maximum security state prison, he has been given Jello as one of his desserts. Chocolate pudding is also on the menu Rolling Eyes

Just to double check, I found this. https://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/video/category/spoken-word-kywtv/3942762-cosby-sued-for-282000-in-legal-fees-by-philly-based-law-firm/
Bill Cosby is worth $400 million. $282,000 is peanuts for him.

@cicerone imposter,
I note a can of worms opening now, with others from 30 years ago going on the he said she said and let's go get him!

On another note, Bill Cosby's walk of fame apparently will remain.

@FOUND SOUL,
Cosby was convicted of a sexual assault that ocurred about 14 years ago (not 30), which is why it was still within the statute of limitations. And a jury decided the outcome based on all the evidence. I think he got a fair deal.

Because a crime ocurred 30 years ago does not make it any less of a crime, it may just be harder to prove or substantiate. But there are many reasons someone does not report or reveal what took place much sooner.

The situation with Brett Kavanaugh, the nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court, did occur over 30 years ago, but the accusation made against him does reflect on his character, and honesty, and it does seem appropriate
to reveal, given the position he is seeking. I don't think this is a case of
"let's go get him"--his accuser seems quite credible.

I'm not sure I see the same "can of worms" that you do. I think more men and women are suddenly feeling empowered to come forward and reveal past sexual assaults, and I think more people are listening to them and taking them seriously. But, those they accuse, can sue them for slander, or libel, or defamation of character, if they feel these assertions are false.

at least one of the accusations against Kavanaugh is in a state with no limitation period. things are changing for everyone.

@ehBeth,
Kavanaugh's record of lying to the Senate should disqualify him to be a judge. Any judge.

@cicerone imposter,
That and his overly emotional behavior. If it's real emotion, he does not have the qualities needed to stay focused and even. If it was theatrics, then it's more dishonesty.. Either way, Kavanaugh needs to step aside.

So you think someone may attack his credibility and slander him when he is a Justice? His record is spotless and his anger was more than justified. He is a man. If that bothers you I don't know what to tell you.

except many people now know Kavanaugh lied to the Senate, an impeachable offense. He has also shown his inability to control his emotions; a negative aspect for any judge. He has also denigrated the Democratic Party which proves his inability to separate his beliefs, and how he will decide on cases. All judges have a duty to leave their politics aside to provide equal justice under our laws.
