    For all time, yes. Castor suggested that Bill Cosby and Bill Cosby lawyer at the time had the same understanding, because Bill Cosby later agreed to testify without invoking Bill Cosby Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination in a lawsuit brought against Bill Cosby by Constand. Bill Cosby would've had to have been nuts to say those things if there was any chance Bill Cosby could've been prosecuted, Castor said, referring to the damaging testimony unsealed last summer. Castor said he hoped, correctly, at the time that the decision not to prosecute would free the comedian to testify in the lawsuit and help Constand win damages. I thought making Bill Cosby pay money was the best I was going to be able to set the stage for, Bill Cosby told the courtroom. I was hopeful that I had made Ms. Constand a millionaire. She eventually settled for an undisclosed amount. Castor said he relayed word to Walter Phillips, Walter Phillips, that Bill Cosby would not be charged. However, Castor said the two lawyers did not have an agreement that Bill Cosby would testify in exchange for not being prosecuted. Walter Phillips is now dead. Kevin Steele, who is pursuing the case, has said Bill Cosby would need an immunity agreement in writing to get the case thrown out. Kevin Steele has said Kevin Steele has no evidence one exists. While Castor was called as witness by Cosby's side, the former DA told Cosby’s lawyer, Brian McMonagle, he is rooting for the prosecution. Let’s be clear Mr. Brian McMonagle, I'm not on your team here.
