Bill Cosby juror speaks: ‘We had no real new evidence’

Parts of testimony from key witness Andrea Constand against Cosby were “unbelievable,” the juror said, but her contradicting memory of dates in the case didn’t have a big impact on the jury split

UPDATE: Court says verdict in Iowa lottery rigging case was flawed

- IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - The Iowa Supreme Court has overturned the conviction of a lottery security expert charged with attempting to claim a $16.5 million Iowa jackpot that he rigged. Friday's ruling ordering a retrial for Eddie Tipton in the 2010 Hot Lotto jackpot is a victory for his defense but might have little practical impact. Iowa prosecutors already agreed this month to vacate the conviction under a plea agreement, which requires Tipton to plead guilty to ongoing criminal conduct for his efforts to claim rigged jackpots in several states
