No matter how many times Gloria Allred tried to remind the jurors of her presence…
One [Cosby] juror told ABC News on Wednesday that ten of the 12 jurors voted to convict Cosby on two counts of aggravated indecent assault, but two people on the panel continued to hold out, leading to a deadlocked jury and a mistrial.
However, a different juror told CNN affiliate WPXI that jurors were in a “true deadlock” and that votes were generally split along 7-5 or 5-7 votes for most of the deliberations.
That sounds more like it, because the case against him is that hinkie. You can be sure that if it had been only one or two holdouts against acquittal, the court would have announced it to the world. That’s standard practice in this current pro-prosecution world.
Btw, here’s another question that we’re sure people will find offensive. But too fucking bad:
Much has been made of the fact that Cosby gave these women money, or at least paid for a number of services and benefits (such as college tuition) after claims were made against him, and that this is clear proof of his consciousness of guilt.
But like Sinatra and Carson before him, didn’t Cosby also have a long history of being generous to people to begin with? Back in the old days he was known to be a notoriously soft touch when it came to helping people who needed it.
And maybe too he and Camille had what they used to call an “open marriage”? Remember the best-selling book?
Yes. How dare we question today’s moral propriety.
Rather than admit that they probably had what used to be called in the olden days “an understanding,” it’s much easier to pronounce him blameworthy about it all. That could explain one reason why Camille Cosby was so angry at the entire proceeding. It’s also no one’s business but their own.
