He also certified he had 7 prescriptions for Quaaludes in a 1970s, and his profession pronounced he kept those drugs until 2000.

But Snyder, who pronounced he has “no doubt” of Cosby’s guilt, pronounced he would have voted to crook even but a other accusers’ testimony.
“In a deposition, he settled that he gave these drugs to other women. we don’t consider it unequivocally indispensably mattered that these other 5 women were here since he pronounced it himself, that he used these drugs for other women,” Snyder said.
