Constand's inconsistent statements present biggest hurdle for prosecution as Cosby case continues

Alternate juror says he would have convicted Cosby

Bill Cosby exits the Montgomery County Courthouse after a mistrial was declared in Norristown, Pa., Saturday, June 17, 2017.

It is also unknown how close the jury may have come to reaching a unanimous decision in the Bill Cosby case.

"Thank you for the outpouring of love & kindness & support".

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. At one point during the trial, McMonagle stood beside Cosby and suggested to jurors that while Cosby may have been an unfaithful husband, that didn't make him a criminal.

Judge Steven O'Neill plans to start the second trial within four months.

Prosecutors are fighting to keep the jurors' identities a secret, arguing in court documents Monday that releasing them would result in a "publicity onslaught" and make picking a jury for the second trial more hard. According to the prosecution, if the jurors names are made public, they will be subjected to a "publicity onslaught" and picking a second jury will become well nigh impossible. A hearing on whether to release juror's names will be held at 3 p.m. Tuesday in Norristown.

Cosby, who remains free on $100,000 cash bail, is accused of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand, a former Temple University employee, at his Cheltenham home in 2004.

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

NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) — The names of the jurors who failed to reach a verdict in Bill Cosby's sexual assault trial have not been made public, but the judge in the case could revisit the issue as early as Monday.

Pennsylvania law allows the public release of jurors' identities, but judges have discretion to keep them a secret under certain conditions.

In addition to bracing himself for a new criminal trial, Cosby is also battling civil cases, accusing him of sexual battery or defamation.

District Attorney Keven Steele asked a judge Monday to block the release of the names.

Constand, now 44, initially went to police about a year after she said Cosby assaulted her, but a prosecutor declared her case too weak to bring charges.

"As you can only imagine", Allison said, "I've got a lot to praise God for".

The judge did, however, allow jurors to watch the Stanley Cup Final games last week, as the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Nashville Predators, 4-2 - even though McCloskey, a huge Penguins fan, wound up missing the team's Cup victory parade. Cosby, 79, said the encounter was consensual. As an alternate juror, McCoskey listened to the six days of testimony with regular members of the panel, but was dismissed prior to deliberations.

The jury deadlocked on the sixth day of deliberations, after rehearing key testimony and asking more than a dozen questions of the court, including the definition of "reasonable doubt".
