Jury selection for Bill Cosby's sexual-assault trial will begin May 22 in Pittsburgh, a Montgomery County judge ruled Tuesday.
The entertainer's trial is still scheduled to begin June 5 in Norristown. Jurors selected from Allegheny County will be transported to Montgomery County and sequestered during the trial.
Judge Steven T. O'Neill has said he plans to screen about 125 jurors per day. The judge denied a request from prosecutors to send questionnaires to as many as 2,000 potential jurors before they report to court.
O'Neill said lawyers on both sides can submit questions to ask potential jurors. Six alternates will be selected to sit through the trial in addition to 12 jurors.
Cosby, 79, is charged with aggravated indecent assault. Prosecutors say he drugged and molested former Temple University employee Andrea Constand at his home in Cheltenham in 2004.
