They nearly surely will meet again in a court of law.
Judge Steven O'Neill declared a mistrial Saturday after the jury was unable to reach a unanimous verdict following six days of deliberations. Even though the machinations of a retrial would be handled by attorneys, the ultimate decision of the next panel of jurors will be, once again, heavily dependent on their assessment of Constand and Cosby.
"None of them have ever been cross-examined, and the one time that it has happened, fair-minded people couldn't come to a conclusion", he said in reference to the current case in Pennsylvania, which ended Saturday in a mistrial. Legal experts believe prosecutors will reshape their case for Round Two, although it's not yet clear why jurors couldn't reach a verdict, or how close they came. Later that day, the Montgomery County, Pa., District Attorney's Office announced that Cosby will be facing another trial on the charges, with District Attorney Kevin Steele insisting that the plaintiff, Andrea Constand, is entitled to a verdict in the case. None of the jurors commented after the trial ended and they headed home to the Pittsburgh area, some 300 miles (480 kilometers) from the courthouse outside Philadelphia.
"During some of the most painfully, aggravating parts of our trial, particularly jury deliberations it was he who was keeping us going", he said. For Cosby, then, the worst-case scenario in a second round of this criminal trial is that he spends a late decade in prison. Granular details of the evidence were splayed across newspaper front pages and websites, parsed on radio talk shows and pored over in dueling spin contests. At the time, Constand worked at Cosby's alma mater, Temple University. "Watching all this unfold on the news kind of makes me sick to my stomach", Janice Baker-Kinney said.
Many prosecutors still only agree to try sexual assault and rape cases they know they can win. "They want the element of surprise".
Prosecutors said immediately that they would retry the Cosby Show star, and he remains charged with three counts of aggravated indecent assault.
Steele sought to tamp down the impact of those inconsistencies by enlisting a rape expert as a witness.
"My opinion continues to be that Ms. Constand was probably the victim of a sexual assault", said Castor, whom Constand is suing for defamation. The incidents made her uncomfortable, but she continued to trust him because of who he was, the affidavit said.
McMonagle said Camille Cosby's words will not have any effect on the case if there is a retrial.
Prosecutors argued Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted Constand.
Alternates listen to all the testimony in a trial, but do not participate in deliberations.
She condemned the district attorney as "heinously and exploitatively ambitious", the judge as "overtly arrogant", lawyers for the accusers as "totally unethical" and "many" in the media as "blatantly vicious".
Judge Steven O'Neill plans to start the second trial within four months.
It was the only criminal case to arise from allegations from more than 60 women that cast Cosby as a serial predator who gave drugs to women before violating them. O'Neill could schedule the retrial within weeks.
The Montgomery County District attorney is urging a judge to keep secret the names of jurors in the Bill Cosby trial, saying that making the names public may make it more hard to find an impartial jury for Cosby's retrial. He's blind, he's about 80 years old and my heart really broke for him that day.
"There was no pause or hesitation about that, and we're moving forward", he told reporters.
