Cosby alternate juror 'probably' would have voted to convict

Bill Cosby's criminal defense attorney, Brian McMonagle, speaking two days after a mistrial was declared in the comedian's sexual assault case, said he is confident that if there is another trial his client will be acquitted.

"The commonwealth's and the defense's extensive public comments about the case - including about evidence that the jury never heard - before, during, and after the trial will have a far greater impact on that process than would the comments of a few jurors", he wrote. The Constand case is the only one that fell within the statutes of limitations, and Philadelphia District Attorney Kevin Steele was voracious in fighting to take down Cosby.

On Saturday, after six days and 52 hours of grueling deliberations, jurors were unable to come to a consensus on any of the charges against Cosby, who was facing three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault.

Cosby also is battling sexual battery or defamation cases still pending by 10 women in California and MA.

After a brief statement that was read by Wyatt, Cosby and his team hopped into a waiting SUV and drove away from the Montgomery County Courthouse, certainly hoping to never see it again.

I had occasionally exchanged words of support with Andrea Constand, whose accusation that Cosby had drugged and sexually assaulted her at his home in 2004 led to the trial, and Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele.

It's hard to think of something more self-incriminating than the president firing the person investigating him for obstruction. Angus King, an independent from ME , said "we're 20 percent into" the collusion aspect of the investigation.

The jury deadlocked on charges that Cosby drugged and molested a woman in 2004, resulting in a mistrial for the 79-year-old TV star.

McCloskey heard all of the testimony and saw all of the evidence presented to the jury, but was not involved in the deliberations.

Mike McCloskey, one of six alternate jurors chosen for the almost two-week trial, discussed his experience in an interview with Pittsburgh radio station WDVE. The trial took place outside Philadelphia, but the jury came from the Pittsburgh area.

"She's just looking for justice I believe, so it's really sad for her", McCloskey said.

McCloskey shared a picture of what appeared to be his juror tag in a recently deleted Facebook post.

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

The mistrial has granted the prosecution that rarest of gifts - the opportunity to cut a deal while saving face under the public glare of the media spotlight. Despite the mistrial, the prosecutor shared that he plans to retry the case.

More important for future victims is to remove the cultural and legal obstacles - from celebrity worship to court secrecy - that still make it too hard for women to get justice after they've been sexually assaulted.

Judge Steven O'Neill, who presided over the Cosby trial, has yet to rule on the release of the names. Alluding to a consensual sexual encounter, Cosby stated in a 2005 deposition that he administered Benadryl to help "relax" Constand.

On Thursday, after more than 30 hours of deliberations, the members of the jury told the judge they were deadlocked and could not reach a unanimous consensus.

"We get 12 people to agree on sex assault cases all the time, but this is not any case. It's an old case, it's a controversial case, it's a case that involves questions of consent".
