    JMO if you want the courts to be bound by a deal you made it's a very risky proposition to rely on "secret agreements" with prosecutors who won't be in office forever.

    Apparently Cosby was advised that filing it with the court was an available option and declined to protect his reputation.

    Okay. I'm busted. Lol.

    I don't know any lawyer that wouldn't have gotten him to sign that. I know Camille would have made him sign it if she knew.

    I wonder why he didn't sign the immunity deal but signed off on the settlement.

    Very odd.

    In hindsight it was totes stupid but I think he's long had an invulnerability illusion. He's gotten away with so much for so long that I bet he thought that once again he could make everything go away flinging some money and/or his social status around, just like he always had.

    Well in this case the accuser has admitted to knowingly taking the pills so it's a moot point. Nothing is impossible to crush, however things are very difficult to crush up into a fine powder: remember Quaaludes and cocaine were simultaneously popular in the club world and folks weren't doing lines of Ludes because you couldn't get them into that same fine powder as cocaine.

    I agree with almost everything you wrote but my question for you is:
    Do you believe in the US criminal justice system as the authority to reveal facts and evidence or do you prefer the current modern day lynching via Internet to serve justice?

    Again, I'm in no way supporting/defending Cosby; rather [Not specific to Cosby] more and more we're seeing people make allegations about various people via social media and using that as their "justice system" but never making a police report. Very reminiscent of angry mob with pitchforks and a serious regression of societal progress...

    If the preliminary hearing was any indication, Cosby's defense team is itching to tear Andrea Constand apart on the stand. They have a lot of material to work with. Andrea did seemingly suspect things after the alleged assault, such as taking her family to a Cosby show, then giving him a gift. Psychologists say this sort of bizarre behavior is not uncommon with sexual assault victims. It's part of their trauma. However, this can make things difficult for the prosecution. Hopefully Steele will have unshakeable experts testifying.

    Here's a detailed article: http://www.vox.com/2016/5/25/11764448/bill-cosby-trial-rape-sexual-assault-defense-strategy

    Yes, Cosby was very comfortable living inside his enormous ego. When the avalanche of accusations started in 2014, I guess he felt the mess would evaporate in a couple months, then business as usual. I remember his dreadfully long silences when a NPR reporter asked him about the allegations. Stonewall Cosby came off as a spoiled brat.

    I wonder if they'd have helped him to hide a body.

    I've wondered about that for a long time now. BC took way too many chances drugging so many women so I wouldn't be surprised one bit.

    Of course, CC must know the truth, but why stay? Finances, emotional dependency, embarrassment, insecurity - possible reasons. She's 72. Who divorces at that age? When this is over and BC loses $$$ and is possibly jailed, what will she do then?

    While they're still married, she can't be forced to testify against him necessarily, AND the reverse holds true as well. He can't testify against her as to when she knew what and how she came to know it. It could be that this is of more mutual benefit than we know.

    He'd have to admit that he did something wrong before he could testify that Camille knew about it.

    Judge Orders Bill Cosby Sex Assault Trial to Proceed

    by Hannah Rappleye and Tracy Connor

    A Pennsylvania judge ruled Thursday that the sex-assault case against Bill Cosby should go to trial, dismissing objections from defense lawyers who wanted to grill his accuser at a preliminary hearing.

    The actor's legal team argued they should have been allowed to cross-examine Andrea Constand during the hearing earlier this year to determine if there was enough evidence for the case to proceed. Instead, detectives read a decade-old statement from Constand into the record at the hearing.

    After the judge shot down their bid for a new hearing, defense attorneys issued an angry statement.

    "Today a man who has meant so much to so many; a man who has given so much to so many; has had his constitutional rights trampled on," they wrote. "We truly believe that our Supreme Court will right this wrong and reverse this decision so that we can finish the mission of proving Mr. Cosby's innocence." ...
