Two holdouts in Cosby case prevent comedian's conviction

24 June 2017

Pennsylvania's Supreme Court has ruled previously that, "The First Amendment provides a qualified right of access to jurors' names".

After 52 hours of jury deliberations, the judge declared a mistrial.

According to Martin, the juror, who wished to remain anonymous, said that at one point the jurors were divided 10-2 before some had changed their minds.

Abrams believes that the conditions in which the jurors deliberated could allow the defense to file a motion seeking to avoid a retrial. Eleven of the jurors voted not guilty just one voted guilty.

Judge Steven O'Neill granted a request by a dozen media organizations, including The Associated Press and the major TV networks, to release the names.

In an exclusive interview with ABC News published Wednesday, one of the jurors, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said that after days of deliberations 10 of the 12 members of the jury agreed Cosby was guilty on two of three counts of sexual assault.

"I think he broke his pinky knuckle", the juror said, about a fellow juror so upset he made a decision to punch a wall.

On count one and count three, the juror claimed that the holdouts would not budge, saying they were "not moving, no matter what".

Following the declaration, Constand, who testified that Cosby drugged and assaulted her at his Pennsylvania home in 2004, thanked everyone involved for their efforts during the trial and personally thanked all of her supporters via social media.

A second juror, speaking to the Associated Press today, says the panel was nearly evenly split in its deliberations.

CNN has tried to reach most of the jurors but has not gotten responses from them.

The juror refused to divulge how any other jurors voted, but did say tensions ran high in the room. "People would just start crying out of nowhere, we wouldn't even be talking about [the case] - and people would just start crying".

However, the juror said they initially voted in a non-binding poll to find Cosby not guilty on all three counts.

At this time, Pittsburgh's Acton News 4 is told the names will be issued once the jurors have been informed.

After the actor's sexual assault case ended in a mistrial, Gloria Allred, who represents numerous women who have accused Cosby of sexual assault, spoke out and hinted at plans to go to trial again.

The AP does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, which Constand has done.
