A bombshell confession by Bill Cosby detailed in a 2005 deposition sealed for ten years until Monday. In it, Cosby admits he obtained seven prescriptions for quaaludes.
Q. "You gave them to other people?"
According to the deposition, Cosby testified that his intent was to give them to young women he wanted to have sex with and that he gave the sedative to at least one woman.
"I am surprised that he admitted that. I certainly wouldn't encourage someone to engage in perjury or not tell the truth but I'm surprised he admitted that," said Fred Tecce, an attorney not involved with the case who we asked about the testimony.
Three other women who claim to have been drugged and raped by Bill Cosby fought along with the Associated Press to have the documents unsealed. In more of the deposition Cosby is questioned about the quaaludes.
MS. Troiani (Plaintiff's Attorney): When you got quaaludes was it in your mind that you were going to use these quaaludes for young women that you wanted to have sex with?
Troiani: "Did you ever give any of those young women the quaaludes without their knowledge?"
Mr. O'Connor (Cosby's Attorney) objects to the question and instructs him not to answer the question.
Tecce says it is an admission but there's not smoking gun. He says it's what Cosby didn't say that holds more weight for the women making claims against him.
"This woman who questioned him is smart enough to follow up and ask the next question, did you give them the drugs without their knowledge and to that question she did not get an answer. So he is admitting that he has given women drugs. It's a step closer to where they were but it doesn't quite get them over the line," said Tecce.
