Bill Cosby‘s criminal defense attorney threw a fundraiser for the prosecutor who for years declined to prosecute the comedian on sexual assault charges, new court documents allege.
Brian McMonagle also donated $2,500 to Bruce L. Castor Jr.’s failed election campaign for Montgomery County district attorney, according to records produced for the attorneys for alleged Cosby sex abuse victim Andrea Constand.
Castor served as district attorney in the Philadelphia suburb from 2000 to 2008, when investigators first looked into Constand’s claims that Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted her. He declined to pursue criminal charges in the case. Last year, Castor ran for another term as district attorney, but lost to Kevin R. Steele. Steele announced criminal charges against Cosby within weeks of being elected.
Dolores Troiani and Bebe Kivitz, attorneys for Constand, who is suing Castor for defamation and is the alleged victim in the criminal case against Cosby that is still pending, subpoenaed McMonagle on March 7. CLICK FOR MORE
