Cosby judge could revisit issue of revealing names of jurors

Cosby judge could revisit issue of revealing names of jurors

Cosby, the actor and comedian known as "America's Dad", turns 80 next month facing just that ordeal.

"We're talking about all the man's tomorrows", said McMonagle, urging acquittal of an icon in the twilight of life. "She's entitled to a verdict in this case".

In the retrial, District Attorney Kevin Steele could ask the judge to let more of Cosby's 60 accusers testify or disclose to jurors that Constand is gay.

Cosby's lawyer said he and Constand were lovers sharing a consensual moment of intimacy.

According to the documents, lawyer Dolores Troiani asked Cosby: "When you got the Quaaludes, was it in your mind that you were going to use these Quaaludes for young women that you wanted to have sex with?"

'We can never underestimate the blinding power of celebrity, but justice will come, ' she warned.

From my perspective, a retrial is never an advantage because, as a prosecutor, you put your best case on.

The jurors, who spent 53 hours debating whether Cosby was guilty or innocent, told of Common Pleas Judge Steven O'Neill they could not reach unanimous verdicts on whether Cosby was guilty of three counts of aggressive indecent assault against college administrator Andrea at his home near Philadelphia in 2004.

Then, a Twitter meme campaign by the Cosby team went awry.

Even the former district attorney in the Constand case piled on, saying he thought Cosby lied to authorities.

McCloskey did not immediately return a message Monday.

The Cosby Show alum, 79, walked out of court a free man and was spared from what could have been a 30-year prison sentence. "It has been restored".

Camille Cosby also said in the statement that she was grateful for the jurors, "who tenaciously fought to review the evidence; which is the rightful way to make a sound decision". He also found success with his "Fat Albert" animated TV show and starred in commercials for Jell-O pudding. Several of them attended the criminal trial with their lawyers.

Cosby has said he gave Constand the cold and allergy medicine Benadryl before their sexual encounter at his home two years later. Prosecutors suggested he drugged her with something stronger.

Judge Steven O'Neill leaves the courtroom following his decision in the Bill Cosby sexual assault trial at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pa., Saturday, June 17, 2017.

After a lone holdout had deadlocked the jury in Hernandez's first trial, the public and media outcry made it extremely hard to find an impartial panel for the retrial, said Mr Fishbein.

Steele, who is a career prosecutor, will have insights in the retrial that he did not have in the first trial: He and his key witnesses have now gotten a detailed view of the defense team's strategy and its methods of handling cross-examinations. "It cost an terrible lot of taxpayer money to bring that case to trial and there's no saying that this next trial could end up as a hung jury again or an acquittal".

NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) - In one of the more unusual scenes to play out at Bill Cosby's sexual assault trial, the judge questioned Cosby under oath as jury deliberations wore on to be sure he knew the mistrial he sought could lead to a second trial.

"I know that we were personally vilified during the trial and I think when you're looking at Mrs. Cosby, you're looking at a wife who believes that the system is unfairly treating her husband and victimizing her husband", he said. Overtly arrogant and collaborating with the district attorney. Cosby was charged just days before the 12-year deadline for filing felony charges.
