Cosby admission wouldn't have aided prosecutor
PHILADELPHIA - A former prosecutor says he wouldn't have been able to bring charges against Bill Cosby in 2005 even if the entertainer had told his investigators the same thing he said during a lawsuit.
Court documents unsealed Monday in Philadelphia reveal Cosby admitted in 2005 to obtaining quaaludes with the intent of giving them to young women he wanted to have sex with.
His comments came in a lawsuit by a former Temple University employee.
Former suburban Philadelphia prosecutor Bruce Castor declined a decade ago to bring charges. He said last year he thought Cosby had lied but there was insufficient evidence to file any charges.
Castor is running again to be district attorney. If elected, he says he'd review the unsealed court documents to see if there's evidence Cosby perjured himself.
