Cosby trial accuser thanks supporters for love, kindness

"Our responsibility is to pay for it", she said.

NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) - The judge who presided over Bill Cosby's sexual assault trial will decide Wednesday whether to identify jurors who deadlocked in the case after a week of deliberations. She was an employee at his alma mater, Temple University, and they frequently interacted because of her work. 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.

"The key to retrying a case is to do it differently the second time, because the defense expects you to do it the same way", said Troiani, whose client is on board for a retrial. After Casey Anthony was acquitted of suffocating her 2-year-old daughter in 2011, one juror quit her job and moved due to death threats she received, Hannaford-Agor said. We're not here because of 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.

Cosby's team immediately went on the attack.

"Social attitudes in general affect what happens in criminal trials, in rape cases".

"How do I describe the judge?"

Tonight on Channel 11 News staring at 5, hear the arguments that swayed McCloskey against Cosby and why he's happy the case will be retried. He told a room full of reporters that the last time he retried a case after a mistrial - in 1992 - he won a conviction. "It has been restored".

Although prosecutors were disappointed that the jury was not able to come to a unanimous verdict they said they appreciated the sacrifices the jurors made.

Cosby had once been a beloved comedian, starring in the hit television program The Cosby Show. He guessed that the other alternates would've also found Cosby guilty. "If the press saturates the nationwide media market with stories about jury deliberations, including juror opinions about the evidence, it may make the parties' ability to select a fair and impartial jury more hard", Steele argued.

Steele said some good things came out of the trial, most significantly, that Constand was able to face Cosby in court and tell her story.

Dozens of women have come forward to say he drugged and assaulted them, but this was the only case to result in criminal charges. Prosecutors suggested he drugged her with something stronger.

Philadelphia Media Network, PennLive and other news organizations filed a motion in Montgomery County Court earlier this month asking the judge to make public the names of the juries. Judge Steven O'Neill advised jurors when the trial ended Saturday outside Philadelphia that they need not discuss the case.

The judge sought to comfort the jurors, at least one of whom fought back tears, calling their epic deliberation "one of the more courageous acts, one of the more selfless acts that I've seen in the justice system".
