  • Cosby alternate juror: I 'probably' would have convicted him

Steele's memorandum was in response to a motion filed by the Philadelphia Media Network, which has asked for the public release of the names. Cosby's trial ended without a verdict after jurors failed to reach a unanim.

Those women, and in fact all other sexual assault victims and their supporters, were put on trial by the defense, too.

"The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has been clear on this issue: juror names are public judicial records pursuant to the constitutional requirement for open courts as well as common law". A hearing is scheduled for Tuesday.

Cosby, who turns 80 next month, is accused of drugging and molesting a woman at his home in 2004.

Mike McCloskey told a Pittsburgh radio station that he had served as an alternate and would have voted to convict Cosby.

Bill Cosby's attorney is seemingly not bothered that prosecutors reportedly plan to retry his client, whose sexual assault case ended in a mistrial. While Pennsylvania law allows for the identities of jurors to be made public, that hasn't yet happened in this case.

Bill Cosby listens to his wife Camille's statement being read aloud by Ebonee M. Benson outside the Montgomery County Courthouse after a mistrial in his sexual assault case in Norristown, Pa., Saturday, June 17, 2017. The judge declined to do so while the trial was going on, but indicated he would consider releasing the names after the trial. It has also been reported that the prosecution may bring up Constand's sexuality in their second attempt at convicting Cosby.

O'Neill may have concern that naming them publicly could lead to another spate of stories on what led to the jury room logjam, further affecting potential jurors' thoughts on the case.

Many prosecutors still only agree to try sexual assault and rape cases they know they can win.

McCoskey said he was "ridiculously sick" when he found out the jury was deadlocked. The prosecution began with the 79-year-old entertainer's arrest on December 30, 2015.

Aguero seemed to have fallen out of favour at City and Gabriel Jesus appears to be Pep's preferred man up front. Aguero scored 33 goals in all competitions while Sanchez bagged 30 - though netted more in the Premier League.

But McMonagle and Agrusa argued Cosby was the victim of false accusations and that the entertainer and Constand had a "romantic relationship" and consensual sexual contact during the 2004 incident. "A jury was selected from Allegheny County, due to defendant's concerns about media saturation in the Philadelphia media market".

He advised jurors when the trial ended Saturday that they didn't need to discuss the case.

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".

The Bill Cosby sexual assault trial which captivated the attention of America for over a year came to a disappointing and anticlimactic end on Saturday.

The names remain shielded under a protective order that several news outlets have challenged. Judge Steven O'Neill instructed them to keep working toward a unanimous decision.
