Cosby alternate juror 'probably' would have convicted

Bill Cosby favoured to walk after retrial, but new jury may be more eager to convict

On the opposite side of drama from Camille Cosby, more than half a dozen women who have publicly asserted that they were sexually assaulted by the comedian appeared in court as spectators during the trial to support Constand. She claims that in 2004 she visited him alone at his home, and he gave her pills, which left her paralyzed. The prosecutor said that he hopes to settle the matter by pressing ahead with the same three counts of aggravated indecent assault.

"When you got the quaaludes, was it in your mind that you were going to use these quaaludes for young women that you wanted to have sex with?" She said that he was unaware that all of them were merely pawns in the situation, vaguely exposing the rape culture in America. "I wanted it to stop".

But the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office in Pennsylvania, said it would retry the case, Efe news reported.

A Bill Cosby accuser living in the North Bay reacted to the news that a judge declared a mistrial in the Cosby sex assault case Saturday.




Judge Steven O'Neill of the Montgomery County Court of Common Pleas in Pennsylvania declared a mistrial on Saturday after jurors said they were deadlocked after 52 hours of deliberations. "And the jury stuck to what they were asked to do, and that is to review the evidence before them and there simply wasn't enough". However, it is somewhat disappointing that he chose to mention the Cosby case and fail to focus on what many find to be most problematic about the mistrial.

Bill Cosby exits the Montgomery County Courthouse after a mistrial in his sexual assault case in Norristown, Pa., Saturday, June 17, 2017. Several of them attended the criminal trial with their layers. For Cosby, then, the worst-case scenario in a second round of this criminal trial is that he spends a late decade in prison. "She's entitled to a verdict in this case". But Brown says it's still possible that the next group of jurors may not be able to reach a verdict.

Many prosecutors still only agree to try sexual assault and rape cases they know they can win. These are the sort of ethical mirages that render criminal justice incoherent in the public imagination. Yanez was an agent of American policing, and Cosby is a celebrity who can summon a cast of dealers, talent agents, and attorneys to enforce his privilege. Cosby said he never took the powerful sedative, preferring to keep it on hand for social situations. She believes the breakdown of the first Cosby jury is important to know, but perhaps not predictive of how the second trial might go. 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.

Prosecutors had asked to have 13 other women testify to bolster their allegation that Cosby had a history of drugging and molesting women, but Judge O'Neill allowed just one to take the stand. Barbara Ashcroft, who directs the trial advocacy program at Temple University's Beasley School of Law, doubts O'Neill would change his mind.
