🎧 ‚ÄėThe Daily‚Äô: The Cosby Verdict and #MeToo | New York Times

Listened to ‚ÄėThe Daily‚Äô: The Cosby Verdict and by Michael Barbaro from nytimes.com

Bill Cosby has been convicted of sexual assault following years of accusations from dozens of women. What changed between the first trial, which ended in a hung jury, and this one?

On today’s episode:

‚Äʬ†Graham Bowley, an investigative reporter at The Times, joins us from Norristown, Pa., where he has been covering the Cosby proceedings.

‚ÄĘ Lili Bernard, a former guest star on ‚ÄúThe Cosby Show‚ÄĚ and one of more than 50 women who have spoken out against the entertainer, describes her experience attending the trial.

Background reading:

‚ÄĘ In¬†one of the first high-profile court cases of the era, a jury¬†convicted Cosby of three counts of aggravated indecent assault¬†against Andrea Constand, a former Temple University staff member who had looked up to him as a mentor.

‚ÄĘ We also look at¬†the timeline of events¬†in the Cosby case, and at¬†reactions to the verdict.

A stunning and well-deserved victory. I’m glad to see depraved predators caught and put away.
