Cosby judge could revisit issue of revealing names of jurors

Break Donald Trump

The only public legal ramifications have been a 2006 civil settlement with Constand (for an undisclosed monetary amount that the court barred from discussion in the criminal trial, and which Cosby sought to reclaim from Constand last year).

"The key to retrying a case is to do it differently the second time, because the defense expects you to do it the same way", said Constand's lawyer, Dolores Troiani.

Montgomery County Judge Steve O'Neill agreed to keep jurors' identities under seal.

He reminded prosecutors and the defense that "a mistrial is neither vindication nor victory for anybody". The judge declined to do so while the trial was going on, but indicated he would consider releasing the names after the trial.

Describing the call as "ridiculously creepy", McCloskey said Cosby "called himself a dirty old man to her, the mom".

"It was the craziest, eeriest bus ride I've ever taken", McCloskey said. "Overtly arrogant, collaborating with the district attorney", said her statement, which was tweeted by her husband and read by an associate of the public relations firm representing Cosby. "We came here looking for an acquittal but like that Rolling Stones song says, 'You don't always get what you want, sometimes you get what you need", McMonagle said as he stood under the portico of the courthouse with Cosby.

It's possible the next jury could be selected in another county so as not to place too heavy of a burden on Allegheny County, where Pittsburgh is located, said Dennis McAndrews, a former Philadelphia-area prosecutor. The case would be once again on behalf of Constand's predicament and all the women who ended up with the same because of him.

The prosecution also said they will revisit their petition to have 13 of the more than 50 Cosby accusers testify in the retrial.

Severe weather expected to affect 64 million Americans today
- A hot and muggy morning will give way to the possibility of severe thunderstorms later in the afternoon and evening. A flash flood watch has been issued for Adams, Lancaster, Lebanon, and York Counties for this afternoon and evening.

"We're only here because of those unproven accusations, and I believe and I know in my heart that the judge will not reverse his decision, will give us a fair trial as he just did", McMonagle said.

Even so, Oliver cautioned that the emergence of a particular narrative - that Constand's testimony was not believable, or that only one or two holdouts refused to convict Cosby - could affect potential jurors' view of the case. "Bill Cosby's rape case", said Armour, who teaches at the University of South California.

"We get 12 people to agree on sex assault cases all the time, but this is not any case". On Saturday morning, all jurors agreed that there was "hopeless deadlock that can not be resolved on further deliberations", BuzzFeed News reported.

During the trial, prosecutors alleged Cosby was a trusted friend and mentor who took advantage of a woman in a "vulnerable state", plied Constand with "three blue pills" and sexually assaulted her at his Cheltenham mansion in mid-January 2004.

McCloskey is the first of the jurors to speak out about the trial.

He expressed sympathy for Cosby's chief accuser Andrea Constand.

But the jurors' inability to reach a verdict, after more than 100 hours of testimony and deliberations in this suburban Philadelphia courtroom, brought home how divided opinions are about Cosby - and about a lot more.
