Bill Cosby’s trial for his alleged sexual assault of a Temple University employee that he once mentored will begin in June.
Reports Page Six:
Prosecutors, defense lawyers and Montgomery County judge Steven O’Neill put the finishing touches on the June 5 trial which will import jurors from Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, to Norristown.
O’Neill said he hopes to do the jury selection in late May.
The comic icon Cosby, 79, is accused of drugging and sexually assaulting an employee from his alma mater Temple University at his house in 2004.
According to reports, the jury is made up of individuals from the Pittsburgh area, but they will be sequestered in Philadelphia.
Cosby’s lawyers have gone to extremes to avoid jury bias and to prevent the numerous women who claims Cosby sexually assaulted him from testifying.
