A warm Hershey Walk GOOD MORNING!!! to you all! And I wore my new Beaver jacket. Man that sucker was warm!
Think About it Thursday Ed-vise today. And Oh MAAANNNN did someone screw up!!!
In case you live under a rock, Bill Cosby Jr. (yup, he’s a junior) was released on appeal from prison in Pennsylvania. See Commonwealth v. William Henry Cosby Jr.
The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania released him because the prosecutor didn’t want justice. Rather, the prosecutor wanted to make a name for herself. Well, she will have it now!
I haven’t read the entire analysis yet. However, I have read the facts of the case and have a pretty good idea of what the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania was thinking.
See, there is a doctrine of the 5th amendment which protects against you having to incriminate yourself. You see it being invoked all the time in court shows. The first prosecutor didn’t think he had enough evidence to prosecute Cosby because of inconsistencies in the victim’s statements. That prosecutor DID believe there was enough for the victim to have a civil case (lower standards of proof). So, that prosecutor made it known in public that the state would NOT prosecute Cosby.
Long story short, Cosby gave a deposition which gave the NEW prosecutor the evidence she needed for a criminal case.
Basically, Cosby made incriminating statements under the legitimate belief that he WOULD NOT be prosecuted by the state. KEY POINT: that was also part of the civil suit deal.
The new prosecutor got greedy trying to make a name for herself. By going back on the prosecutor’s office deal with Cosby AND by using bad evidence tactics. So, Think About It. Because of those missteps, Cosby now can go back and reclaim the settlement money of 3.5 million dollars BECAUSE THE NO-PROSECUTE WAS PART OF THE DEAL!
I’m just saying
That’s it for today. Take care of yourselves. Check in on each other and remember clowns usually end up in jail for MANS-LAUGHTER! GET IT?!?!?! HAHAHAHAHAHA
