Bill Cosby Says He Won't Testify

May 17, 2017

Dr. Bill Cosby told Sirius-XM radio host Michael Smerconish on earlier this week that he would not testify at his upcoming trial. He made it clear that he had planned to leave his defense completely to his legal team.

“When you have to deal with examination, cross-examination, et cetera, et cetera, more than two sides to every story, sometimes it’s four or five,” he said in the radio interview. “And what people want to say and want you to say and how they maneuver, and, yes, I do have lawyers protect me — objection; sustained. But I just don’t want to sit there and have to figure out what I believe is a truthful answer to whether or not I’m opening a can of something that my lawyers are scrambling.”

Mr. Cosby said that this was the first time since 2015 that he had given an public interview, since a rush of women have come forward to accuse him of sexual assault, causing him to break off his touring schedule and virtually disappear from the radar.
