If Jacko had hoped that getting off in court the other month was going to at least clear his name enough to allow him to start to put things (not little boys) behind him, and that at least on that basis the money had been well spent, he's going to be might pissed off this week. In effect, all the court case has done has thrown out a few extra people floating about giving interviews making him sound like a even more unpleasant man than the prosecution ever managed. He's going to be haunted by dissenting jurors for a long time to come:

In a preview shown Monday on NBC's "Today," Cosby asked Cook if the other jurors will be angry with her.

"They can be as angry as they want to. They ought to be ashamed. They're the ones that let a pedophile go," responded Cook, 79.

Hultman, 62, told Cosby he was upset with the way other jurors approached the case: "The thing that really got me the most was the fact that people just wouldn't take those blinders off long enough to really look at all the evidence that was there."

Hultman has said previously that when jurors took an anonymous poll early in their deliberations he was one of three jurors who voted for conviction.

If the trial undermined Jackson's position, the interviews and books and TV movies could be enough to send him rolling off into the long grass, as more and more people seem to be willing to start spilling beans. Apparently the Larry King Live production office has started taking small, cooing phonecalls from, well, not quite stoolpigeons, but close:
