"She would have made you nearly cry". "She's entitled to a verdict in this case".
The seven men and five women who were deadlocked at Bill Cosby's sex assault trial were spookily silent during their bus ride back to Pittsburgh Saturday, a man who said he was one of the alternate jurors claimed.
Constand herself sued Cosby in 2005 and settled for an undisclosed sum.
In her note to the judge informing the deadlock, the jury forewoman said the panel could not reach "a unanimous consensus" on the charges against Cosby.
Cosby's defense team pointed out that after the alleged rape, Constand continued speaking with Cosby.
Prominent Lansdale attorney, Marc Steinberg. says due to the length of the trial and deliberations, the Spencer charge was set in play by Judge O'Neill. She also attacked the judge, the accuser's lawyers and the media.
Cosby's attorney Brian McMonagle immediately moved for a mistrial, which was granted by the judge.
Callan said the $33.5 million awarded in the case reflected the jury's reaction to a double homicide and was larger than a potential award to someone who has civil claims against Cosby. "It has been restored".
Cosby had broken barriers as the first black actor to star in a network show, "I Spy", in the 1960s and, two decades later, created the top-ranked "Cosby Show". He found success with his "Fat Albert" animated TV show and starred in commercials for Jell-O pudding. Cosby gave the deposition more than a decade ago as part of accuser Andrea Constand's lawsuit against him.

Several of those women attended the trial and wore buttons that read "We Stand in Truth". Her lawyers lined up 13 other women who were ready to testify on similar allegations of being drugged and sexually assaulted by Cosby. Prosecutors suggested he drugged her with something stronger. Still, it's frustrating to see jurors succumb to ambiguity in this particular case when, to the general observer, so many women have indicted Cosby with revolting clarity in the court of public opinion.
Bill Cosby supporters welcomed today's news of a mistrial.
"If the parties previously agreed to stay the civil litigation pending the criminal trial, it is likely that they will continue that stipulation for a retrial", said Priya Sopori, a partner at Greenberg Glusker.
He reminded prosecutors and the defense that "a mistrial is neither vindication nor victory for anybody".
He said of the six alternate jurors: "I would say we would have voted to convict".
Prosecutors are fighting to keep the jurors' identities a secret, arguing in court documents Monday that releasing them would result in a "publicity onslaught" and make picking a jury for the second trial more hard. Cosby's power - his inherent trustworthiness as a famous, beloved man called to account by a strong but powerless woman - is impossible to separate from the verdict, or the trial's lack thereof.
The criminal complaint was filed in December 2015, just days before Pennsylvania's 12-year statute of limitations was due to expire.
I am grateful to any of the jurors who tenaciously fought to review the evidence; which is the rightful way to make a sound decision.
