    Bill Cosby juror speaks: 'We had no real new evidence'

    (CNN)The jury in Bill Cosby's assault trial agreed on many points in the case and accepted his accuser's testimony as true, but they remained at a hopeless deadlock because some were confused by how the charges were worded, a juror told CNN.

    Parts of testimony from key witness Andrea Constand against Cosby were "unbelievable," the juror said, but her contradicting memory of dates in the case didn't have a big impact on the jury split.

    "It didn't matter if it was January or March, or what the dates were, the fact that it happened, we accepted that. We accepted all that," said the juror, who spoke to CNN on condition of anonymity. "But we could not accept the way the charges were written."
    An interesting article on what jurors were thinking and what factored into their split.
    "Life is about dreams. Teaching is about making them come true."

    Cosby Trial

    Unreasonable doubt is any doubt which is not reasonable.

    Like just for example, you know there were drugs in the hotel room, she says she never took them, and you decide you believe her. Both agree no one else entered the room, so you believe that, but you know the drugs were found in her system and that she definitely ingested them there. You think he *probably* gave them to her, but you're not 100%, and who knows, maybe someone else entered the room and gave them to her.

    Maybe she fell asleep with her mouth open and a bug picked them up, walked over her mouth and dropped them inside. Aliens from the planet Tribble beamed down from the Enterprise and plied her with the drugs and had their furry way with her.

    They're doubts. They're not reasonable doubts.

    Thanks. Makes sense. There is no planet Tribble.
