    Like I've said multiple times where there is smoke there is fire , so I'm sure Cosby has done something wrong to women in the past. But this specific case seems very shady to me. I want to know what the new evidence is that the new DA claims to have. The old DA didn't think there was any evidence.
    Agree on all counts.

    Bill Cosby seeking plea deal to avoid sex assault trial, source says | Fox News

    Bill Cosby hopes to cop a plea that will allow him to avoid any prison time for his alleged sex crimes, according to a source close to the disgraced comedian.

    After a Pennsylvania judge ruled the shocking testimony in a 2005 civil lawsuit in which he admitted to giving women drugs before having sex with them admissible, Cosby plans to ask his attorneys to seek a plea deal to avoid a trial, the source said.

    Cosby has been charged with three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault in a 2004 incident involving a former Temple University student. A criminal trial is scheduled to begin in June.
    He has been accused of drugging and raping more than 50 women.

    “He and his family, including his wife, Camille, are adamant that Bill won’t be able to convince a jury to let him off,” a source close to the Cosbys told The Post.

    “Cosby and his family believe he’ll be eligible for a sentence of just probation . . . and remove the threat of him dying in prison,” the source said.

    If they have evidence that he drugged and raped women he should spend the rest of his life in prison.

    Probably felt he could toss in a Tic-Tac and proceed to kiss and touch a women's private parts without their permission just because he was a celebrity. Those kind of people should be locked up, not celebrated.

    I have not kept up with the case, but this is just one victim, correct? This does not mean he would be absolved from all other alleged crimes, correct?

    Just one victim, yes. It is my understanding that the statue of limitations has run out on the other alleged crimes.

    Not really. Good lawyers and the time that has passed since the alleged incident make it hard to get a conviction.

    If it's a hung jury I would think they would definitely re-try it, right? If there was ever a case worthy of spending some extra money on trying to get a conviction it has to be a decades long alleged serial rapist.

    I bet they don't. I agree that he is probably guilty as hell, but too many things work in his favor. His age, his image as a great American dad, and the years that have passed, make it too easy for people to let it go.

    Pleasantly surprised to hear.
