Cosby judge could revisit issue of revealing names of jurors

The aging comedian has denied wrongdoing and his camp blasted the judge and prosecutors from the courthouse steps.

District Attorney Kevin Steele vowed to try the 79-year-old Cosby a second time, saying accuser Andrea Constand supported the decision. For Constand, the worst-case scenario is that she has spent a decade braving legal scrutiny as a victim for nothing.

Judge Steven O'Neill, who presided over the Cosby trial, will hold a hearing Tuesday on the release of the names. "She's just looking for justice, I believe".

After six days and 52 hours of deliberation, the seven men and five women selected to serve on the Pennsylvania jury were unable to render a unanimous verdict on any of the three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault with which Cosby had been charged. But prosecutors announced they will conduct a new trial, and already the sheer volume of similar-sounding accusations has cost Cosby dearly in the court of public opinion. She also criticized the judge, the accuser's lawyers and the media.

"How do I describe the District Attorney?"

Over the weekend, Billy Cosby's wife Camille Cosby, took on the district attorney in a statement-calling him "heinously and explosively ambitious". "It has been restored". The mistrial in Cosby's case came only a day after a Minnesota jury acquitted police officer Jeronimo Yanez of all charges stemming from the shooting death of Philando Castile at a traffic stop on July 6, 2016.

While Kardashian rubs the marinade in, Thompson teases her: "Yes, massage that", he jokes. "You treat me like a queen!" she wrote. But most likely, Khloe is just joking, and we'll have to wait to celebrate the happy announcement one day ~soon~.


Cosby had broken barriers as the first black actor to star in a network show, "I Spy", in the 1960s and, two decades later, created the top-ranked "Cosby Show".

The disgraced entertainer still faces a slew of civil lawsuits. Cosby claims their contact was consensual and that the pills he gave her were ordinary Benadryl, though he has admitted on-record that he gave women quaaludes for sex in the 1970s. McCloskey said he was particularly impressed to testimony of Gianna Constand, the mother of Cosby's main accuser, Andrea Constand. Prosecutors suggested he drugged her with something stronger.

While the world doesn't know and may never know how close the jurors in the Bill Cosby trial came to reaching a verdict, one alternate juror broke his silence Monday.

But O'Neill gave them a special instruction required by law and sent them back to deliberate to see if they could settle their differences and reach a verdict.

Now, he said, reporters want to talk to jurors about their deliberations, and what led to the jury becoming deadlocked. It's unclear how many jurors voted for conviction and how many wanted an acquittal. "We're going to trial".

"I remind everyone this is not vindication or victory". Several of the women who had accused him of rape were in attendance at his trial.
