PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Bill Cosby has arrived at the Pittsburgh courthouse where jury selection in his sexual assault case is getting underway.

Cosby emerged from an SUV at the Allegheny County Courthouse just before 8 a.m. Monday. Wearing sunglasses and a tan sport coat, he held the arm of an assistant with one hand and held a cane in the other.

He didn't respond to reporters shouting questions at him. His assistant says he has no comment.

Lawyers hope to find a dozen jurors and six alternates in Pittsburgh willing to be sequestered nearly 300 miles from home.

The case has attracted worldwide publicity that the judge hopes to shield from jurors when the trial begins June 5 in suburban Philadelphia.

The 79-year-old actor-comedian is accused of drugging and molesting a college basketball team manager in 2004. Cosby says the contact was consensual.
