Responding to a motion filed by the 79-year-old entertainer’s lawyers last month –  Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele said he wouldn’t oppose Cosby’s request to bring in a jury from elsewhere – but once the jury is selected –  the judge will bring it back to Montgomery County for the trial – set for June.

Cosby’s attorneys recently filed a motion – seeking to move the trial or bring in a jury from another county – saying news coverage made it inevitable that jurors would be biased .

Bill Cosby is accused of drugging and molesting – a woman he knew through Temple University. He has denied wrongdoing.
