IT WAS NOTHING but willful arrogance that motivated actor Bill Cosby to drug women, only to sexually assault them afterward (Cosby charged with sex assault, Dec. 30). With numerous charges against Cosby, his best option would be to plead guilty and allow his attorneys to plea bargain for a lesser punishment.

Prosecutions are like snowflakes, no two the same. Sometimes, you have a low-profile drunken-driving case where the defendant is a first-time offender, the district attorney doesn't have too much skin in the game and is willing to offer a plea deal, and no one except the parties involved will ever know about it.

They have taken to TV to air their accounts of humiliating assaults. They have lobbed allegations in closely scrutinized legal filings. And in magazines and memoirs, the more than 50 women who have publicly accused Bill Cosby of sexual misconduct have shared similar stories.

A day after Bill Cosby was charged with sexual assault, his lawyers launched a campaign Thursday to discredit the case against him as false and politically motivated. The charges "fulfill a campaign promise" that prosecutor Kevin Steele made this fall while running to be Montgomery County district attorney, said Cosby's spokeswoman, Monique Pressley. That claim was part of the message Pressley delivered during a round of interviews on morning TV shows, decrying the prosecution of the 78-year-old actor and comedian as unsubstantiated, and foreshadowing possible defense arguments in court.

THEY CALL it a "sisterhood. " Brought together by the pain and unthinkable acts allegedly inflicted on them by "America's Dad," the more than 50 women who have accused Bill Cosby of sexually assaulting them over decades have formed a closed social-media group in which they share fears, hopes, and experiences. "We have a private social-communication tool we use to stay in touch, to let each other know what's happening and when it's happening," said Lise-Lotte Lublin, one of Cosby's accusers.

Bruce L. Castor Jr. thrived on locking up criminals, once winning five first-degree murder convictions in a year. He spoke his mind. He fought with fellow Montgomery County commissioners who forged an alliance against him. He had ambitions of becoming governor.
