Cosby alternate juror 'probably' would have convicted

Retrial of Cosby case more in favour of defence, say lawyers

"She's entitled to a verdict in this case". The prosecution could also seek to appeal Judge Steven O'Neill's ruling to exclude testimony from a dozen women who claim Cosby sexually assaulted them. Cosby says the encounter was consensual. She says he gave her three blue pills to help her relax and that she became woozy. She felt it was her fault for years before other women began sharing similar stories, giving Janice the courage to come forward.

Troiani acknowledged the difficulty of the case, given the passage of time and the impact of the alleged drugging on Constand's ability to recall details.

A United States judge has declared a mistrial in the sexual assault trial of celebrity comedian Bill Cosby after jurors could not reach a unanimous decision about Cosby's guilt.

And the immediate reaction of Cosby's family and legal team was repugnant.

After the judge declared a mistrial, prosecutors announced they would retry the case. And a federal judge dismissed a ninth accuser's case, finding her complaint inadequate. McCloskey said he was particularly impressed to testimony of Gianna Constand, the mother of Cosby's main accuser, Andrea Constand. "It has been restored". Even though the machinations of a retrial would be handled by attorneys, the ultimate decision of the next panel of jurors will be, once again, heavily dependent on their assessment of Constand and Cosby. He also found success with his "Fat Albert" animated TV show and starred in commercials for Jell-O pudding.

Under questioning from her lawyer, Cosby acknowledged that he had obtained several prescriptions for quaaludes in the 1970s for the objective of offering the powerful sedative to women he wanted to have sex with. Prosecutors have suggested he might have given her quaaludes, a highly popular party drug in the 1970s that was banned in the U.S.in 1982. They may also be able to query jurors about the deliberations in hopes of learning something that may make their arguments more convincing.

Judge Steven O'Neill said Friday that defense lawyers have made at least four bids for a mistrial as the deliberations have worn on without a verdict. On Saturday, they came back and told him they were hopelessly deadlocked.




Media organizations including The Associated Press are seeking the jurors' identities.

He reminded prosecutors and the defense that "a mistrial is neither vindication nor victory for anybody."It wasn't immediately known how many jurors wanted to convict and how many wanted to acquit".

As one of the jurors in the first trial said during jury selection in this case so bereft of physical evidence, the saga boils down to a matter of "he said, she said".

The Associated Press does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, which Constand has done. "Overtly and arrogantly collaborating with the District Attorney", said Camille Cosby.

The criminal complaint was filed in December 2015, just days before Pennsylvania's 12-year statute of limitations was due to expire. Constand told the jury she was merely returning his calls about the women's basketball squad at Temple University, where she was director of team operations and he was a member of the board of trustees.

Cosby also is battling sexual battery or defamation cases still pending by 10 women in California and MA.
