I don't think it really necessarily mattered that these other five women were here, because he said it himself. Instead, it was Cosby's admission that he gave the women Quaaludes to have sex with them in a previous deposition.
Snyder further admitted, though, that when he entered the courtroom for the first time, he was still in doubt whether or not the comedy icon was guilty.
He made up his mind, however, after "hearing everyone's comments about certain pieces of evidence and going through the different counts", he said.
He also added that he had absolutely no knowledge of the case prior to being selected as a juror as he doesn't "watch the news, whatsoever". He said he also believed the testimony of five other women who said Cosby had drugged and sexually assaulted them.
"I think back to the time when Camille and I went to visit Nelson Mandela in South Africa. Mr Cosby admitted to giving these Quaaludes to women, young women, in order to have sex with them", Snyder said on Monday.
"We could kind of see the writing on the wall with the first jury", he said.
The jury wrote in a statement that it had "absolutely no reservations" about convicting Cosby of three counts of aggravated indecent assault. In the same testimony, The Cosby Show actor also revealed he repeatedly used his position of power to have sex with young women he met, per ABC News.
Snyder said he didn't know much about the 80-year-old comedian before the trial and knew nothing of the allegations.
While Cosby's conviction serves as a victory for those who have long-suffered in silence at the hands of sexual predators, indicating a long-overdue shift in society's allowance of such vile behavior, in another way, it equally serves as a reminder that perception often differs from reality. Each count carries a 10-year prison sentence. But he would've convicted Cosby without their testimony. To Feden and Ryan, however, the man known for playing Dr. Cliff Huxtable on "The Cosby Show" was just another predator whose victims were finally being heard. "So I didn't even know what he was on trial for".
Incarceration will be a stark change for the comic, whose net worth was estimated in 2016 by Fortune magazine at $400million, with $100million invested in real estate, including homes in New York, Massachusetts and Nevada.
"Not once were race or the #MeToo movement ever discussed, nor did either factor into our decision, as implied in various media outlets".
"So, if they send me to that place, then that's what they will do, and I will have to go there".
Snyder even said he didn't even know what the #MeToo movement is, that it consists of celebrities coming forward and outing those who have allegedly sexually assaulted them.
