In 2005, the Montgomery County District Attorney Bruce Castor announced he would not criminally prosecute Cosby for the rape of Andrea Constand. As a result, Cosby was required to give deposition testimony in Costand's civil suit against him. Years later, a new DA decides to prosecute Cosby anyway and uses the deposition testimony against him. The use of this testimony was a plain violation of Cosby's right not to incriminate himself. Thus the PA Supreme Court threw out the conviction.
