Cosby Accuser Andrea Constand Thanks Supporters for 'Love & Kindness'

The Latest: Cosby jurors wrap up for night, still at impasse

The jury failed to reach a unanimous decision on any of the three counts against the comedian, ending the trial without a verdict. While Pennsylvania law allows for the identities of jurors to be made public, that hasn't yet happened in this case.

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

Constand, 44, of Toronto, accused the aging comedian of drugging and molesting her at his home near Philadelphia in 2004, when she worked at his alma mater, Temple University.

"I'm innocent. I'm not going to plea to something I did not do", Cosby said, during an exclusive interview with the NNPA Newswire. Several of them attended the criminal trial with their lawyers.

Cosby acknowledged that he had cheated on his wife with Constand, but he said that their relationship was consensual. On Thursday, jurors announced they were deadlocked.

Though the names of jurors have not been publicly released to the media, alternate juror Mike McCloskey spoke to Pittsburgh radio station WDVE-FM about his experience in the courtroom and being sequestered from the active jury.

Cosby's team declared victory, however temporary.

William Henry Cosby Jr., as his name appears on charging documents, remained calm but appeared exhausted as the mistrial was declared.

One of Bill Cosby's accuser's reacts at the Montgomery County Courthouse after a mistrial the Bill Cosby sexual assault case in Norristown, Pa., Saturday, June 17, 2017. "Trust it, believe in it, and I'm confident that if this case is retried, he'll be acquitted". Prosecutors reopened a criminal investigation and filed charges in 2015 after Cosby's deposition in the woman's 2005 lawsuit was unsealed, and they realized the 12-year statute of limitations for felony sexual assault had not yet expired.

Saturday afternoon, Judge Steven T. O'Neill declared a mistrial following six days of deliberations, which stalled as the jurors - who first reported a deadlock four days into their discussions - repeatedly asked the court for clarifications.

The names of the jurors have not yet been released, though The Associated Press, The New York Times and other members of the press plan to motion for the judge to release the names to the media.

Steele says Cosby will be retried.

"Once the risk to the integrity of the trial has dissipated, there is no legitimate reason for maintaining the anonymity of the jurors", she said.

The prosecution also said they will revisit their petition to have 13 of the more than 50 Cosby accusers testify in the retrial.

The jurors for the first trial were already hard to find and chosen from a pool in Pittsburgh rather than Philadelphia where the alleged sexual assault took place and the trial was held.

"It can never be clearer that if you speak up, you could be chilling the justice system in the future if jurors are needed in this case", Judge O'Neill told them.
