Cosby judge could revisit issue of revealing names of jurors

  • Actor and comedian Bill Cosby stands as his publicist Andrew Wyatt addresses the media after a judge declared a mistrial in Cosby'

Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele has said he will retry the case. "She's entitled to a verdict in this case". But they did not ask to rehear Valliere's remarks or the testimony of the other prosecution expert witness, a toxicologist who said that Benadryl - the allergy medication Cosby says he gave Constand on the night of their sexual encounter - has been used by rapists, in other cases, to make victims sleepy and unable to resist. His deposition testimony in her civil suit revealed that Cosby, someone who had a bestselling book about fatherhood, had procured Quaaludes for the sole reason of having sex with women who were not his wife.

The case involving Constand followed a long path to prosecution.

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.

Cosby's team immediately went on the attack. Despite the mistrial, the prosecutor shared that he plans to retry the case. She also criticized the judge, the accuser's lawyers and the media. "Overtly arrogant, collaborating with the district attorney", said her statement, which was tweeted by her husband and read by an associate of the public relations firm representing Cosby.

Yet the fundamental potential flaw in the case will remain: Constand's inconsistent statements to police about matters such as the date and circumstances of the alleged assault, which she says took place in 2004 at Cosby's gated estate in tony Elkins Park, Pennsylvania. "It has been restored".

What's considered the best chance of getting Cosby on criminal charges - which he's never faced despite accusations from more than 30 women - will end with the judge declaring a mistrial.

Cosby had broken barriers as the first black actor to star in a network show, "I Spy", in the 1960s and, two decades later, created the top-ranked "Cosby Show". He found success with his "Fat Albert" animated TV show and starred in commercials for Jell-O pudding.

Lavall Jordan set to be named head coach at Butler
The Bulldogs' former star player, who started his coaching career at his alma mater, was hired Monday as Butler's new head coach. After Lickliter's departure from Iowa, Jordan accepted an assistant coaching position under John Beilein at MI .

But it was Cosby's reputation as a public moralist who urged young people to pull up their saggy trousers and start acting responsibly that prompted a federal judge to unseal portions of an explosive deposition he gave more than a decade ago as part of Constand's civil lawsuit against him. Yanez and Cosby are unrelated in the eyes of the law, and yet they are contemporaneously linked in public perception of the USA criminal justice system's surreal uselessness.

Cosby was on the board of trustees of the university and he struck up a friendship with Constand, who went to his home to talk about her career.

"I would have voted to convict", McCloskey told the morning hosts on WDVE, a station that broadcasts Pittsburgh Steelers games. On Saturday, they came back and told O'Neill they were hopelessly deadlocked. Brown thinks the defense will have the upper hand during a retrial.

In a report from the Philadelphia Inquirer, one of the women speaking out against Cosby commented on how society failed to value a woman's worth in this case.

The revelations led newly elected Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele to seek charges. Cosby was charged just days before the 12-year deadline for filing felony charges. Cosby's power - his inherent trustworthiness as a famous, beloved man called to account by a strong but powerless woman - is impossible to separate from the verdict, or the trial's lack thereof.

"I would say we would have voted to convict", he said.
