.. the D.A. has a Serious Problem [#Bill Cosby case]…

.. and it is his testimony in the now – dismissed civil case against now – disgraced comedian Bill Cosby ..

.. normally , when a civil case is filed against a defendant who is charged with criminal charges , the civil case is put on hold . The chief reason is the defendant ‘ s testimony — it cannot be compelled in the criminal case , while it can be [if called] in the civil one. It is extraordinary unusual for the civil case to come first ..

.. in this case , it did — by a decade . That presents a problem . Why ? ..

.. Cosby , as expected , testified in the civil case . His testimony was required by the rules of the road . An important issue — he did not expect for there to be a criminal case [or charges] related to the woman involved . However , that has now changed ..

.. [h/t —]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. in order to get Cosby to testify in the civil case [without exerting his 5thAmendment rights against self – incrimination] , the old D.A. apparently made a ” deal . ” His ” deal ” was an act that [I believe] has given Bill Cosby what is known as ” use immunity . ” Use immunity protects a potential defendant against [except perjury , for lying in court] anything that the defendant has said in his immunized testimony ..

.. Oops ..

.. I believe that Bill Cosby is a louse . He has sexually assaulted many women . However , there is the statute of limitations , which protects louses like Cosby if criminal charges are not brought within a specific period of time after a criminal act has been committed . So , in this case , Cosby should not be tried . The ex – D.A. in effect made a deal , thus screwing over the victim ..

.. also , the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights exist for a reason . Those constitutional rights exist to protect us all . Even scumbag louses like Bill Cosby ..

.. damn scumbag ! ..

.. Damn him ..
