Americans everywhere were overjoyed last week when disgraced actor Bill Cosby was found guilty of three counts of sexual assault. Now, one of the jurors on the case has come forward to reveal why exactly Cosby was convicted.

Daily Mail reported that during an interview with “Good Morning America,” juror Harrison Snyder said that it was Cosby’s own words that did him in, adding that it “wasn’t an open and shut case.”

“I think it was his deposition, really. Mr. Cosby admitted to giving these Quaaludes to women, young women, in order to have sex with them,” Snyder, 22, said. “He stated that he gave these drugs to other women. He said it himself that he used drugs on other women.”

Snyder, who was the youngest member of the jury, said that he had no doubt that they came to the right decision. He also said that he knew nothing about the #MeToo movement before this case.

“I only found out about it after I got home and looked online to see what everything was,” Snyder said. “I didn’t even know about the #MeToo movement.”

Snyder said he knew very little about Cosby before the trial.

“I really didn’t know a lot. I knew he was an actor. I knew that he did The Cosby Show. I never watched The Cosby Show. I’m a little too young for that,” Snyder said.

Snyder said that he believed Cosby’s victim Andrea Constand when she took the stand as well as the five other victims who testified. The young man said that he does not think it “really necessarily mattered that these other five women were here. Because he said it himself that he used these drugs on other women.”

Cosby is currently under house arrest, but he is facing up to 30 years in prison when he is sentenced at some point in the next 75 days.

“He maintains his innocence, and he is going to walk around as a man who’s innocent because he didn’t do anything wrong,” said his spokesman Andrew Wyatt.

We’re glad to see that justice prevailed in this case and that Cosby will soon be in prison where he belongs!
