CBC News: The National

Former federal prosecutor and current Litigation Partner, Priya Sopori, shares her perspective on Bill Cosby's release after the Pennsylvania High Court overturned the conviction stating that due process rights were violated. Sopori states that a lot has changed culturally since the District Attorney questioned Constand.

Excerpts:

"I would urge people to look at this decision from a constitutional lens and not from a lens of sexual assault."

"Now, a District Attorney might look at the circumstances and say this is how victims respond in this type of situation. It's not atypical and it is not a mark against our victims' credibility."
