Cosby faces 2nd sex assault trial after jury deadlocks

20 June 2017

Days later, and little is known about what went on behind closed doors.

Montgomery County Judge Steve O'Neill agreed to keep jurors' identities under seal.

O'Neill may have concern that naming them publicly could lead to another spate of stories on what led to the jury room logjam, further affecting potential jurors' thoughts on the case.

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.

Bill Cosby is facing charges of sexual assault. Many other women have claimed that Cosby assaulted them as well, with specifics ranging from inappropriate touching to rape, but the statute of limitations for many of these complaints has expired, meaning that the crime happened too long ago for the government to legally prosecute Cosby.

McCloskey and the five other alternates did not participate in the 52 hours of deliberations that eventually left the 12-person jury hung and were kept separate from the panel. Including testimony from two women who accused the comedian of almost identical instances of drugging and sexual assault that allegedly happened years apart and on opposite sides of the nation.

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

"It was the craziest, eeriest bus ride I've ever taken", said McCloskey, 43.

While Bill Cosby celebrated Saturday's mistrial in the sexual assault trial involving former Temple University employee Andrea Constand, prosecutors are not ready to let the matter drop and have vowed a second trial. The trial took place outside Philadelphia, but the jury came from the Pittsburgh area. The jurors' names haven't been made public and the split on the vote hasn't been disclosed, shrouding the case in mystery. Media organizations including The Associated Press urged a judge to release them, saying the public has an interest in "confirming that the outcome of the first trial was the result of an impartial process".

Dozens of women have come forward to say he drugged and assaulted them, but this was the only case to result in criminal charges. "And Mrs. Cosby's power is back". Cosby has vehemently argued against the allegations against him, claiming that any sexual contact he had with any of his accusers was consensual.

His publicists read a letter from Cosby's wife, Camille, on the courthouse steps after the trial that attacked O'Neill as "arrogant" and District Attorney Kevin Steele as "heinous" and "ambitious". It has also been reported that the prosecution may bring up Constand's sexuality in their second attempt at convicting Cosby.
