  • Cosby trial accuser thanks supporters for love, kindness

"She's entitled to a verdict in this case".

Jurors were selected in Allegheny County because Cosby's attorneys argued that pretrial publicity would make it hard to find impartial jury candidates in Montgomery County, where Cosby lives.

Constand, 44, of Toronto, accused the aging comedian of drugging and molesting her at his home near Philadelphia in 2004, when she worked at his alma mater, Temple University.

Constand pursued criminal charges against Cosby in 2005 and got nowhere, not because detectives didn't believe her but because her case didn't seem winnable.

He also said that he felt particularly bad for Cosby's accuser Andrea Constand.

Lawyer Dolores Troiani, who represented accuser Andrea Constand, walks outside the Montgomery County Courthouse after Bill Cosby's sexual assault trial, Saturday, June 17, 2017, in Norristown, Pa. Cosby's trial ended without a verdict after jurors failed to reach a unanimous decision.

After months of preparation and over a week of testimony, the Bill Cosby trial ended in a mistrial.

"This case has garnered nationwide, and even worldwide, media attention", Steele wrote.

"How do I describe the judge? It has been restored".

North Korea denies torturing American detainee Otto Warmbier
Thousands of people from his small hometown of Wyoming, Ohio, packed into Otto Warmbier's old high school for his funeral. Doctors there said Warmbier had suffered a severe neurological injury from an unknown cause.


Some jurors in highly visible cases have endured post-trial harassment. He also found success with his "Fat Albert" animated TV show and starred in commercials for Jell-O pudding.

Media outlets are urging a judge to make the names public.

In it, Cosby referred to Gianna as "mum" as he recalled in graphic detail that he gave her daughter, then 31, an orgasm.

It would be reasonable, based on the evidence presented, for the jurors to agree that Cosby is a sexual predator and still disagree on a verdict as to the assault of Constand. Prosecutors suggested he drugged her with something stronger.

"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", O'Neill told them. Judge Steven O'Neill instructed them to keep working toward a unanimous decision. "The second time around, are they coming with an agenda?" "We didn't even get a decision so that made me more sick". "I feel bad for all of you, I really do".

It wasn't immediately known how many jurors wanted to convict and how many wanted to acquit.

During their deliberations, jurors sent a string of questions to the judge, asking to rehear the testimonies of five trial witnesses and Cosby's previous deposition testimony.

Mike McCloskey told a Pittsburgh radio station that he had served as an alternate and would have voted to convict Cosby. "So we hope doing this and moving forward in this case sends a strong message that victims of these types of crimes can come forward and be heard". Cosby says the encounter was consensual.

The AP does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, which Constand has done. Several of them attended the criminal trial with their lawyers.
