Cosby gets out of prison...he goes to a field w/ a rock wall and a large tree.
Buried under the tree is a note and some money.
He takes a bus to Ft. Hancock, TX
He finally makes it to the beaches of Zihuatanejo
Jeffrey Epstein looks up from his work on the boat he is refurbishing to see his friend striding towards him.

The camera pans out as the two life long friends embrace..free at last.

For all the talk about inequality in our justice system I think we all know the color green is the color that matters most.

out on a technicality.
Intellectually, I agree with the decision of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.

Cosby only waived the right to not incriminate himself (which applies not only in the actual criminal case, but to any sworn statements under oath....you can "take the fifth" in civil cases as well), after the DA at the time agreed not to file charges.

It was a subsequent DA that filed charges and then used information gleaned from Cosby's deposition to prosecuted him.

I haven't had this exact same situation, but I have stuck with deals that I thought were ridiculously light that other ADAs made with Defendants.

So yes...a technicality...and one that feels wrong and leads to injustice...but the right call under the law, IMO.

I agree it was the right call according to our laws however I can and still hope he gets OJ'd and goes to jail for a decade for jaywalking...

I certainly don't begrudge you for hoping that.

My wife was like, "so he didn't do it? ", and I told her, nope he did it, and in a way admitted to it, but they used evidence against him that was supposed to be off limits.

That's it basically, right?

I’m gonna take a hard pass on discussing or attempting to explain legal concepts with you.

Nothing good or useful could result from it.

So you won't even say whether I was basically correct in what I told her?
