Bill Cosby's Accuser Says It's "Time For Him To Suffer" In Prison

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

Harrison Snyder, in an interview aired Monday on ABC's "Good Morning America," said that it "wasn't an open and shut case".

NORRISTOWN, Pa. -Convicted comedian Bill Cosby will remain on house arrest until he's sentenced this summer following his conviction on three counts of aggravated indecent sexual assault.

Snyder and the rest of jury said in a statement that their decision was influenced only by courtroom proceedings and did not discuss race or the #MeToo movement. "And I just tell them, if you were there, you would say the same thing, you would say that he's guilty".

"I never watched "The Cosby Show" or anything - a little too young for that", he said.

Until he is sentenced, Judge Steven O'Neill ruled the 80-year-old comedian will be on house arrest with an ankle bracelet. Each one said they lost consciousness nearly immediately after being given a substance by Cosby - pills or a drink, presumably drugged - after which he sexually assaulted them.

He explained that although there were inconsistencies in Constand's testimony, Dr. Barbara Ziv, a psychiatrist who took the stand, said discrepancies are not out of the norm.

"We still believe that Mr. Cosby is innocent of these charges", lead defense attorney Tom Mesereau said. "I give her quaaludes".

But for at least one juror from the retrial at which Cosby was just found guilty on all counts, it was this piece of evidence, above all others, that secured Cosby's conviction.

Juror Harrison Snyder, in an interview on ABC's Good Morning America, said he doesn't keep up with the news and hadn't heard of the hashtag later adopted by victims to share stories of sexual abuse and assault, following news stories about Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein's predatory behavior past year.

The actor's statement was recorded more than a decade ago, as part of a civil suit Constand had filed against him and settled in 2006.

Cosby was convicted of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in his Elkins Park home in 2004.

"I don't think it really necessarily mattered that these five other women were here because he said it himself - that he used drugs for other women", Snyder told "GMA".

But Snyder said testimony from the other women did not push the decision over the top.

Last week's verdict came about 11 months after Cosby's first trial ended in a mistrial when a jury could not reach a unanimous decision after deliberating six days.

However, Donio's opinion differs from what state guidelines indicates which is that the three counts carry a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.

He said the #MeToo movement wasn't a factor in his decision.
