2 white men, white woman selected for Cosby jury

PHILADELPHIA - Two men and one woman have been picked for the jury that will hear Bill Cosby's sex assault case.

Both men say they or someone close to them has been a sexual assault victim, but both say they can be fair.

Cosby is charged with drugging and molesting a Temple University employee in 2004. Dozens of other women have accused him of similar conduct.

All three jurors selected in Pittsburgh are white. Cosby has said he thinks race "could be" a motivating factor in the accusations lodged against him.

Two jurors appear to be in their 50s. One man appears to be in his 20s or early 30s.

The defense has used four of its seven strikes. The trial starts next month near Philadelphia, and the jurors will be sequestered.
