Former DA Says He Hoped He Made Bill Cosby Accuser A Millionaire

Former Montgomery County District Attorney Bruce Castor believes Bill Cosby can't be prosecuted based on the admission he made years ago.

The 78-year-old Cosby was arrested and charged in December with drugging and sexually assaulting former Temple University athletic department employee Andrea Constand in 2004.

He could get up to 10 years in prison if convicted. However, the former DA doesn't think Cosby's previous statements can be used against him.

Castor told a judge this week that he believed there was "an agreement" that Cosby would testify at the time in exchange for not being prosecuted.

Asked why it wasn't in writing, he replied: "It was unnecessary because I concluded there was no way the case would get any better."

He insisted the deal was "for all time" and he had the power to do that as a representative of "the sovereign."

"Cosby would've had to have been nuts to say those things if there was any chance he could've been prosecuted," Castor said, referring to the unsealed testimony.

In it, Cosby admitted giving quaaludes to young women he wanted to have sex with. He confessed he gave Constand three pills at his mansion home before taking advantage of her.

Castor says they couldn't go after Cosby criminally due to the and so he moved the matter to civil court so Constand could be compensated with money.

"I thought making Mr. Cosby pay money was the best way. I was hopeful that I had made Ms. Constand a millionaire."

Newly elected district attorney Kevin Steele has said Cosby doesn't have an immunity agreement in writing.
