NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) — The judge in Bill Cosby’s criminal case in Pennsylvania expects the sexual assault trial to last at least two weeks.
Montgomery County Judge Steven O’Neill said at a hearing Monday that he hopes to pick jurors in late May. He says their names will not be made public.
The 79-year-old Cosby is accused of drugging and molesting a Temple University employee at his home in 2004.
The defense wants the jury pool prescreened through a written questionnaire on their background, media habits and feelings about Cosby.
But O’Neill prefers they get the standard 16-question form followed by individual questioning in court.
