    All 12 jurors and six alternates have been chosen for the Pennsylvania jury that will hear Bill Cosby’s sexual assault trial.

    Two blacks are among the 12 people on the jury. The panel includes seven men and five women.

    Five men and one woman will fill in as alternate jurors if needed.

    Leaving the Pittsburgh courthouse Wednesday evening, Cosby thanked local residents and fans.

    He goes on trial June 5 in suburban Philadelphia on charges he drugged and molested a woman in 2004.
