Kristen Feden and Stewart Ryan spoke to The Associated Press on Sunday about the almost three-year journey from reopening the case to last Thursday's verdict and how they restructured their approach after last year's hung jury.
The 80-year-old entertainer, best known as the iconic father from the 1980'S TV hit The Cosby Show, faces up to 30 years in prison when he is sentenced in the next three months for drugging and raping Andrea Constand, 45, in 2004 at his home in a Philadelphia suburb.
Snyder spoke on a deposition that was part of a civil case brought by Cosby accuser Andrea Constand.
Snyder revealed that some people believe he made the right decision, where as others allegedly think the star is still innocent. "I didn't do what they said I did", Cosby explained to the Post. That alleged agreement prompted Cosby's candor in the 2005 deposition, Cosby's team argued; the deal, which would help Constand's civil suit, meant that the testimony could never be deployed in a criminal case against Cosby.
He was the only one of the 12 to tell Judge Steven T O'Neill that he had never heard of the sexual assault allegations against Cosby or the #MeToo movement that claimed a victory in Cosby's conviction on Thursday (Friday NZ Time).
In the testimony, which was read to jurors at both trials, he described giving quaaludes to women before sex in the 1970s and his encounters with Constand, a Temple University women's basketball administrator.
An accuser's story that Cosby drugged and molested her in 2004 was supported by those of other women who said he violated them, too.
"I think it was his deposition, really", said Harrison Snyder, 22, of Montgomery County, in an interview with ABC News.
His lawyers are planning to appeal the conviction.
Feden, Ryan and their boss, District Attorney Kevin Steele said they are confident Cosby's conviction will stand. "Not once were race or the #MeToo movement ever discussed, nor did either factor into our decision".
"After thoughtful and meticulous consideration of the information and evidence provided to us, we came to our unanimous verdict", the jury said in the statement. He referred to prison as "that place".
Cosby said he rejected a plea deal that would have required him to serve house arrest and register as a sex offender.
"I only found about it after I got home and looked online to see what everything was", he shared. "He was a free man, but I remember when we met him at Robben Island where he had been in a prison for all of those years", Cosby recounted.
