Stewart Ryan - Crime Victim Attorney Laffey, Bucci & Kent attorney discusses landmark sexual abuse conviction  

PHILADELPHIA (February 2020) – Personal injury law firm Laffey, Bucci & Kent is pleased to announce that attorney Stewart Ryan recently co-presented “Seeking Justice: The Prosecution of William H. Cosby, Jr.” at the Pennsylvania District Attorneys Association Mid-Winter Meeting.

As Assistant Chief of the Trials Division in the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office, Ryan prosecuted a number of high-profile cases including Commonwealth v. William H. Cosby Jr. The presentation was a top-to-bottom review of the case from investigation through conviction and appeal, including communication strategies during the case.

Commonwealth v. Cosby has been described as historical and groundbreaking for its impact on the nation’s movement toward finally recognizing the gravity of crimes of sexual violence. At the time Cosby’s conviction, the allegation against him was more than 14 years old, but the arrest and conviction of the man who has been described as America’s most prolific serial rapist never could have occurred without the tireless efforts of the survivor and her attorneys.

Held on Feb. 12, 2020 in Philadelphia, the Mid-Winter Meeting features training seminars for current prosecutors and their assistants, former prosecutors, deputy attorneys general, assistant U.S. attorneys, and police chiefs. The Pennsylvania District Attorneys Institute is the education and training affiliate of the Pennsylvania District Attorneys Association, providing educational materials and training seminars statewide for district attorneys.
