12 Jurors Selected For Bill Cosby's Sexual Assault Retrial
Yesterday, reports indicated that the jury selection for Bill Cosby's sexual assault retrial had been stalled amid some racial slurs uttered by one the prosecutors. Both the opposing parties then retreated into their separate chambers while the issue was dealt with. After hours deliberation, the final 12 jurors for the high prile case have finally been chosen.
The identities the individuals remain unknown, but is made up five women and seven men. Two the jurors are African-American, while the remaining ten are white. Most the dozen are middle aged, with the exception one man in his 20s, as well as two women who appear to be in their 60s.
The comedian and former star The Cosby Show is being retried for sexual assault after Andrea Constand revealed that she had allegedly been drugged and molested by the 80 year-old sometime in 2004. Jurors initially called a mistrial after having deliberated for days. Constand is expected to take the stand and testify against Cosby once again, this time alongside five other women.
Almost 50 women have now accused Cosby some form sexual assault or misconduct, with some allegations going back several decades. Many the victims recall Cosby fering them a drink that was laced with Quaaludes, a notable date-rape drug, which he admitted to in an old deposition.
