The jury was unable to reach a verdict in the Bill Cosby sexual assault trial after two weeks of deliberating and the judge announced a mistrial on Saturday, June 17. We learned late last evening how the 12 jurors voted.

The two holdouts on the guilty verdict in Counts 1 and 3, “not moving, no matter what,” said the juror, who agreed to speak to ABC News only on the condition of anonymity.

The assessment in count 2 has to be a blow to Constand.

Cosby, 79, faced three counts of aggravated sexual assault charges stemming from an alleged attack against Temple University basketball coach Andrea Constand at his Philadelphia home in 2004.

The felony aggravated indecent assault charges were launched against the embattled comedian in 2015. ‘

The anonymous juror who spoke to ABC affirmed that accusations by dozens of other women against Cosby were not factored into the deliberations at all and explained, “We never brought anything outside in, Never. Not once. If somebody would mention something, we would cut them off.”

The room was tense as the jurors deliberated. One juror was so irate, he punched the wall which alarmed the group of five sheriff’s deputies that guarded the sequestered dozen.

The juror added, “People couldn’t even pace. They were just literally walking in circles where they were standing because they were losing their minds” because the room was so small and “People would just start crying out of nowhere, we wouldn’t even be talking about [the case] — and people would just start crying.”

District Attorney Kevin Steele has said that he plans to retry the case.

    Good to see Mr. Cosby prevail from those racist made up allegations made by drug addicted gold diggers.

    That’s right court, put jurors in a small, uncomfortable room, so that they can give a hurried decision. Ah ha! You weren’t able to fool two of the jurors! Bill is innocent. What person gets rape and then calls their rapists over 600 times, and then lie about it? This lady is a liar and should be sued and jailed!
