necessity wrapped up for the day so far. they need 12 active jurors, six alter nats and so far they have three white men and two white women. bill cosby walking through the courtyard didn't say anything, the only time the 70-year-old opened his mouth was to tell a judge he couldn't hear a potential juror seated feet away from him. he appeared interested in the selection process. each potential juror answered questions like had they or a loved one been convicted of a crime and were they or a loved one the victim of sexual assault. the judge essentially looking for someone who could put that behind them and be fair and impartial. so far it hasn't mattered whether they were aware of the cosby case or are a fan of the 79-year-old. so there are five selected jurors thus far. they need 12 and six alter nats so this could take a few days now and from what i can tell you 50 of these potential jurors will return, 50 new people will also enter the courtroom and
