Cosby prosecutor fights release of juror names

Cosby prosecutor fights release of juror names

Prosecutors in Bill Cosby's sex assault case have asked the judge not to release the names of the men and women who served on the jury.

"We will evaluate and review our case". We took a look at evidence in this case and made a determination, based upon that evidence, on whether we could prove this case. Montgomery County D.A. Kevin Steele will retry Cosby.

After a jury said it was 'hopelessly deadlocked, ' Judge Steven O'Neill declared a mistrial in the Bill Cosby sexual assault case.

"I remind everyone this is not vindication or victory". He advised jurors when the trial ended, after a week of testimony and 52 hours of deliberations, that they need not discuss the case, even as the public debates whether age, race, gender or other issues separated them.

Cosby was charged with three felony counts of aggravated indecent assault stemming from a woman's allegations that he drugged and violated her at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004.

William Henry Cosby Jr., as his name appears on charging documents, remained calm but appeared exhausted as the mistrial was declared. At least 10 women have pending civil claims against Mr Cosby. It's unclear how many jurors voted for conviction and how many wanted an acquittal.

Cosby is accused of a awful crime: drugging and molesting Andrea Constand, a former Temple University basketball administrator. "We're going to trial". The attention on this case put sexual assault in the spotlight.

The 11-day trial was expected to come at a high cost for the county. That made it a lot easier for the defense team to attack Constand and her credibility.

The trial has irrevocably damaged the legacy of Cosby, once a towering figure in USA popular culture best known for his seminal role as a lovable father and obstetrician on hit 1984-92 TV series "The Cosby Show". Constand did not appear at the news conference. "We're here because of them", McMonagle said, shouting and pointing at the back of the courtroom, where other accusers were sitting. But throughout this legal process, Constand has been fighting for her right to be heard and to have a fair trial and a verdict.

The nature of the split among the jurors was not revealed.

"Trust it, believe in it and I'm confident that if this case is retried, he'll be acquitted", he said.

Constand said the trial had "given a voice to the many victims who felt powerless and silenced".

Steele rode the Cosby case into the DA's office in 2015 in a race against Republican Bruce Castor.

The jurors deadlocked. There is too much reasonable doubt.

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. On Saturday, the judge in charge declared a mistrial and said the actor in question would be tried again.

Bill Cosby is facing charges of sexual assault. For the prosecution, a second trial provides the opportunity to present a battle-tested key witness.

McMonagle had sought a mistrial seven times during the deliberation phase, arguing jurors were asking to review the entire trial.

The jurors clearly struggled with their verdict, telling the judge on Thursday they were at impasse. Ultimately, they chose to bring just one witness - Det. He found the taped phone call played in court between Cosby and Constand's mother, in which Cosby described the sexual encounter with her daughter, particularly disturbing. Cosby says it was consensual.

Those requirements include playing 90 percent of the team's snaps and racking up over 1,200 yards or making the All-Pro list. According to the Boston Globe , Gronk even brought his personal DJ, Dante the Don, to play the music for the festivities.

If prosecutors do stand by their vow to try Bill Cosby a second time, it is possible that they will try to persuade the judge to allow more accusers to take the stand (only one, in addition to Andrea Constand, was allowed during the first trial).
