Hearing scheduled on release of Cosby jury names


Montgomery County D.A. Kevin Steele will retry Cosby. Cosby's trial ended without a verdict after jurors failed to reach a.

The Bill Cosby sexual assault trial which captivated the attention of America for over a year came to a disappointing and anticlimactic end on Saturday.

"None of them have ever been cross-examined and the one time that it has happened, fair-minded people couldn't come to a conclusion", he said in reference to the case that ended Saturday in a mistrial.

Approximately 60 accusations of sexual assault have been made against Mr Cosby over a number of years, but only Ms Constand's resulted in criminal charges because the other alleged incidents were too old to prosecute.

In civil lawsuits in the USA, plaintiffs need only show that the weight of evidence is on their side, meaning they have information to tip the scales above 50pc in their favour, as opposed to criminal cases in which prosecutors must prove claims beyond a reasonable doubt. A hearing is scheduled for Tuesday. Perhaps they are adhering to the judge's admonishment that "it can never be clearer that if you speak up, you could be chilling the justice system in the future if jurors are needed in this case".

In February, two women were killed when their vehicle got sandwiched between two semi-trucks in a crash caused by a dust storm. Police say a dust storm and its high winds caused limited visibility, prompting the chain-reaction crash.


Pennsylvania law allows the public release of jurors' names, but judges have discretion to keep them a secret under certain conditions. On the flip side, at least one of the jurors was left doubting Constand's own evidence, fixating on some of the inconsistencies highlighted during cross-examination - unconvinced by the testimony of a further Cosby accuser and even Cosby's own disturbing words from a prior civil deposition in which he admitted administering drugs to Constand in a past sexual encounter.

She reported the crime to police in 2005 and filed a civil suit against Cosby after prosecutors declined to press charges.

The search for jurors without any feelings on the case will only be more hard given the intense coverage of the first trial. Eight additional media organizations were expected to sign a motion in support of releasing the names Monday. "Bill Cosby's rape case", said Armour, who teaches at the University of South California.

Mike McCloskey, 43, told radio station WDVE-FM that he and the other alternates were kept secluded from the seven men and five women that deliberated for five days last week until declaring itself hopelessly deadlocked. He says he was "ridiculously sick" when he found out the main jury couldn't reach a verdict in the case.

"During some of the most painfully, aggravating parts of our trial, particularly jury deliberations it was he who was keeping us going", he said. Cosby has vehemently argued against the allegations against him, claiming that any sexual contact he had with any of his accusers was consensual. "That is all it takes for reasonable doubt-and just one juror's reasonable doubt can hang a jury".

As the days passed, the jury repeatedly asked to rehear portions of the testimony.

One of the alternate jurors in Bill Cosby's sex assault case has gone public.

The names remain shielded under a protective order that several news outlets have challenged.

Some jurors in highly visible cases have endured post-trial harassment.

Cosby, 79, remains charged with three second-degree felony counts of aggravated indecent assault, and each count carries a minimum sentence of five years in prison.

Constand told jurors Cosby gave her pills that made her woozy and then violated her as she lay paralyzed on a couch, unable to tell him to stop.
