"Yes", Cosby replied in the 2005 deposition.

But for at least one juror from the retrial at which Cosby was just found guilty on all counts, it was this piece of evidence, above all others, that secured Cosby's conviction.

"I really only found out about it after I got home", Snyder, who also said he had only a vague understanding of Cosbys career before the trial, told ABC News.

"I think it was his deposition, really", said Harrison Snyder, 22, of Montgomery County, in an interview with ABC News. I think the most significant grounds were the five accusers.

She called United States President Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka "as helpful to women as an empty box of tampons". At another point she said she mused about a tree falling on Conway, "not suggesting she get hurt, just stuck".

"If you were there, you would say the same thing", added Snyder. He said he also believed the testimony of five other women who said Cosby had drugged and sexually assaulted them. "So, if they send me to that place, then that's what they will do and I will have to go there", Cosby told the Post. They also described the sworn testimony that the comedy icon gave as part of a lawsuit accuser Andrea Constand filed against him in 2005, which later settled for almost US$3.4 million (NZ$5 million), as particularly compelling.

In the tense moments before a jury convicted Bill Cosby of sexual assault, the prosecutor who had branded him a "con man" and called him out for laughing during closing arguments started to worry about the global implications if the #MeToo era's first big trial went the other way.

'No drugs or contraband or influence of escape, ' McNaughton said. Race and the #MeToo movement against sexual misconduct were never discussed, according to the statement, obtained by NBC's "Today" show.

Snyder also said he believed testimony from Cosby's chief accuser, Andrea Constand, who recalled for jurors in graphic detail how the now-80-year-old comic gave her pills that made her pass out and how she woke up to him sexually assaulting her at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004.

From the debut of "The Cosby Show" forward, Cosby became so closely linked to his character, much of the country regarded him as "America's Dad", a squeaky-clean image which followed Cosby throughout his later, less successful professional ventures, and certainly, an image which has since become - at best - tainted, and at worst, seen as a diversion to Cosby's reprehensible offscreen behavior.

Snyder, the youngest member on the panel, was the first person selected during the jury selection process earlier this month.
