Cosby’s spokespeople Andrew Wyatt and Ebonee Benson told Good Day Alabama that the 79-year-old comedian hopes to teach kids how to handle themselves when they’re out and about and prevent themselves from being accused of assault.
- Wyatt said: “This issue can affect any young person, especially young athletes of today, and they need to know what they’re facing when they’re hanging out and partying, when they’re doing certain things that they shouldn’t be doing.”
- He then added: “And it also affects married men.”
- Benson said: “The laws are changing, the statute of limitations for victims of sexual assault are being extended, so this is why people need to be educated on a brush against the shoulder.”
- Cosby avoided conviction in his own sexual assault trial after the jury deadlocked and a mistrial was declared. He has been accused of drugging and assaulting dozens of women, but due to statute of limitations, he cannot be tried in most cases.
- A juror on the trial told ABC News that 10 of the 12 jurors in the assault trial wanted to convict him on two counts of aggravated indecent assault, but they were unable to move forward when the other two jurors refused to budge.
