Jurors can reveal they were on the jury. One of the alternate jurors in Bill Cosby’s sex assault case has gone public.
43 year old, Mike McCloskey told a Pittsburgh radio station he would have voted for conviction. McCloskey said he was “ridiculously sick” over the jury’s inability to reach a verdict. McCloskey said the bus ride back to Pittsburgh was the craziest, eeriest bus ride he’s ever taken as jurors sat silent in their seats. The names of the jurors have not been released. Media companies are seeking the names. The issue is being taken up by Judge Steven O’Neill. He’s expected to make a ruling on the request. The prosecution is asking the Judge not to release the names. The prosecution believes if the names of jurors are released and subject to mass media inquiries, it could make it more difficult when the next jury is picked. Cosby’s sex assault case was ruled a mistrial Saturday. Montgomery County D.A. Kevin Steele will retry Cosby. The comic icon is accused of allegedly sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his Cheltenham Township home in 2004 with the use of blue pills and wine. Cosby is free on 1 million dollars bail.
