Lawyers Say Cosby's Drugs-Sex Admission Could Aid Women's Cases

According to prosecutors, Bill Cosby's admission that he obtained quaaludes to give young women before sex could bolster criminal and civil claims being pursued by his accusers. Cosby in sworn testimony unsealed Monday admitted that he gave the now-banned sedative to a 19-year-old woman before they had sex in Las Vegas in the 1970s. He also admitted giving the powerful drug to unnamed others. His lawyer interfered before he could answer deposition questions in 2005 about how many women were given drugs and whether they knew about it. According to the documents, Cosby's lawyers insisted during the deposition that two of his accusers knew they were taking quaaludes from him.
