"You have a spokesman who is explaining to the media what a mistrial means - at least what he believes a mistrial is", O'Neill told Cosby in court.

The actor is being accused of drugging and molesting a woman at his home outside Philadelphia in early 2004.

The jury seemed exasperated at times over the course of the week as it repeatedly asked the judge for clarifications of evidence or to hear testimony from the trial again.

Forty-three-year-old Mike McCloskey spoke to Pittsburgh radio station WDVE on Monday.

McCloskey posted his juror's badge on Facebook as proof of his role in the case.

In the deposition, which was released in 2015 at the request of The Associated Press, Cosby said he obtained several prescriptions for quaaludes in the 1970s and offered the now-banned sedatives to women he wanted to have sex with.

They deliberated for 52 hours over six days.

"I would say we would have voted to convict", he said. Prosecutors say they will retry the case.

Montgomery County Judge Steve O'Neill agreed to keep jurors' identities under seal. A hearing is scheduled for Tuesday.

He advised jurors when the trial ended Saturday that they didn't need to discuss the case. But he said he'd let the jurors work as long as they wanted. Cosby was performing there, and she says he invited her to a party where she accepted two pills from him. It is not yet clear why jurors could not reach a verdict, or how close they came. "It's an old case, it's a controversial case, it's a case that involves questions of consent", said Loyola Law School professor Laurie Levenson.

Prosecutors might ask the judge to reconsider his ruling that allowed just one of Cosby's 60 other accusers to testify.

Cosby remains free on $1 million bail in the criminal case.

Meanwhile, the judge has assured that he would try to schedule a new trial within 120 days. They spent the duration of the trial sequestered after being chosen from Allegheny County, almost 300 miles away.

The Cosby mistrial decision has many people in Northeastern and Central Pennsylvania talking. Television satellite trucks clotted the street in front of the pre-Civil War stone courthouse in Norristown, Pennsylvania, where Cosby's trial was held.

"We're going to retry the case", said Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele. It's so far unclear which concerns specifically derailed the jury from reaching a unanimous verdict.

A USA judge has declared a mistrial in the sexual-assault case of comedian and celebrity Bill Cosby after a jury said it was deadlocked following more than 52 hours of deliberations.

Cosby faces another defamation lawsuit from Dickinson, along with a sexual harassment claim from Judy Huth, who alleges Cosby sexually assaulted her in 1974, when she was 15.

Publicist Andrew Wyatt raised a clenched fist as he led the legally blind Cosby out of the courthouse after the jury deadlocked Saturday, while cameras popped and his lead defense lawyer walked away.

But the same judge Cosby's wife Camille called "arrogant" in a scathing statement after the mistrial was declared Saturday near Philadelphia is likely to preside over his retrial.
