>> A Pennsylvania judge granted a request by Bill Cosby's lawyers Monday, to have jurors picked from a different county in his upcoming sexual assault trial. Lawyers for the disgraced comedian, claim the case has drawn to much publicity to allow for a fair criminal trial in Montgomery County Pennsylvania.
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court will select the new county from which jurors will be picked, and they'll be sequestered once the trial begins June 5th. The defense claim Montgomery County District Attorney, Kevin Steele, whose leading the prosecution, campaigned in 2015 by criticizing a predecessor, for failing to pursue the Cosby case.
And successfully argued the news coverage has made selecting an impartial jury from the county impossible. Cosby is accused of drugging and molesting former Temple University employee, Andrea Constant in 2004 at a suburban Philadelphia home. Nearly 50 other women have accused Cosby of drugging and sexually assaulting them. Some of the charges go back decades.
The 79 year old has denied any wrong-doing, and says his encounter with Constant, like the others, was consensual.
