After being accused of dangling and assaulting more than 60 women in the last few decades, Bill Cosby became one of history''s most disgraced figures. It appears there is another obstacle on the way.
After two days of deliberation, the jury had agreed on eight out of nine questions required to reach their verdict on whether or not the disgraced former sitcom star hadassaulted a then-teenagedJudy Huthat the Playboy Mansion in the 1970s.
Jurors know they would need to restart on Monday, June 20th, according to Judge Craig Karlanlet. The incident occurred because the judge previously promised a member of the jury to leave after Fridays deliberations due to a prior commitment. Deputies then arrived at the Santa Monica Courthouse at 4:30 P.M., stating that the courthouse was required to be closed at that time with no exceptions, because overtime for the jurors had not been allocated in the budget.
Unfortunately, the judge would either have to or would require the dismissed juror to return on Monday, or they would have to begin deliberations with an alternate juror. This comes after Cosbys lawyer,Jennifer Bonjeanmov, was prosecuted for a mistrial when a juror was spotted standing near one of the Cosby Showactors accusedtellersLily Bernardwhere she was seated in the courtroom audience.
