Cosby judge could revisit issue of revealing names of jurors

Bill Cosby exits the Montgomery County Courthouse after a mistrial in his sexual assault case in Norristown, Pa., on Saturday, June 17, 2017. Saturday morning, Judge Steven O'Neill declared a mistrial after the jury, which was composed of seven men and five women, failed to reach a unanimous decision after six days of deliberations.

"Mr. Cosby does not intend to dignify these allegations with any comment".

"The legacy remains intact", said Andrew Wyatt, the longtime spokesman for the legendary entertainer. Prosecutors say they will retry the case. And a federal judge dismissed a ninth accuser's case, finding her complaint inadequate.

"How do I describe the judge?"

McMonagle said it was up to Cosby whether he would represent him in court again.

Another one of Cosby's accusers, actor Kathy McKee, who alleges Cosby raped her in 1973, once described the incident - after which, she said, he pretended that nothing odd or remarkable had just happened between them - as an unthinkably violent encounter with hubris.

"After 52 hours of deliberation - probably one of the most courageous acts I've ever seen - I'm compelled to grant a mistrial", said Judge Steven O'Neill.

Steele says his office stands "in awe" of accuser Andrea Constand and believes she deserves a verdict. "She's entitled to a verdict in this case". Several of them attended the criminal trial with their lawyers. But he said he'd let the jurors work as long as they wanted. "Once people say they are deadlocked, then what really becomes the reason for further deliberations?"

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

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 was the only criminal case to arise from allegations from more than 60 women that cast Cosby as a serial predator who gave drugs to women before violating them. Lawyer Brian McMonagle told jurors that while Cosby had been unfaithful to his wife, he didn't commit a crime.

"She has shown such courage through this, and we are in awe of what she has done", Steele said. He also found success with his "Fat Albert" animated TV show and starred in commercials for Jell-O pudding.

He also said he gave Constand three half-tablets of the cold and allergy medicine Benadryl before the "petting" began. 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.

Prosecutors in Bill Cosby's sexual assault case are fighting to keep the jurors' identities a secret.

Bill Cosby's publicity team is going on the attack after a jury deadlocked on charges he drugged and molested a woman in a case that followed dozens of similar accusations. It didn't help that the statute of limitations had expired for some of Cosby's other accusers. Cosby faces three counts of aggravated indecent assault. Those women, and in fact all other sexual assault victims and their supporters, were put on trial by the defense, too.

"This isn't talking to a trustee".

But the comedian was positive, McMonagle said. "Why are we running from the truth of this case - this relationship?"

But Steele said it was no accident that some of Constand's memories were faulty.

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