WTF: Bill Cosby Trial Juror Makes A Shocking Claim About Being Harassed After The Trial

His claims comes hours after a judge made the juror's names public.

Published May 18, 2018

The identities of the 12 jurors that convicted Bill Cosby of sexual assault have officially been released. One juror in particular, William J. Walsh, is speaking out about how his role in the trial has resulted in a slew of harassment.

"They’re stalking people! They followed one juror to the supermarket! They called my wife on her cell phone! They called my daughter on her cell phone. They even called my brother," Walsh said in a statement to Radar Online.

On Friday (May 18) Judge Steven O'Neal warned reporters that they could face criminal charges if they "hound" jurors who don't want to be bothered.

The decision to release the juror's names came after what O'Neal described as a 21-day "cooling-off period" to help readjust to their personal lives after spending three weeks at a hotel for the duration of the trial.

Bill Cosby was convicted of the 2004 drugging and sexual molestion of accuser Andrea Constand, a former Temple University women's basketball administrator. He's scheduled to be sentenced in September.
