Cosby's retrial likely won't be anything like his first one.Cosby's first trial last spring ended in a cliffhanger, with jurors unable to reach a unanimous verdict after five days of tense deliberations on charges that the man who made millions of viewers laugh as wise and understanding Dr. Cliff Huxtable on "The Cosby Show" drugged and molested Constand at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004 .After limiting the focus of the first trial, Judge Steven O'Neill has been willing to let both sides push the retrial well beyond Constand's allegations.This time, O'Neill is letting prosecutors have five additional accusers testify -- including model Janice Dickinson -- as they attempt to show Cosby made a habit of drugging and violating women. Cosby lawyer Tom Mesereau, who won an acquittal in Michael Jackson's 2005 child molestation case, said the jury will learn "just how greedy" Constand was.Cosby testified in 2005 and 2006 as part of Constand's lawsuit.Opening statements could be delayed while O'Neill sorts out allegations raised late Friday that a juror was heard saying he thought Cosby was guilty.Over the past few years, about 60 women have come forward with allegations against Cosby dating to the 1960s.
