8th juror chosen to serve in Cosby assault case
Attorneys for iconic comedian and TV pioneer Bill Cosby have started selecting jurors for Cosby's upcoming sexual assault trial. The defense has used four of its seven strikes as it tries to exclude people they fear would be unsympathetic to Cosby.

The recall affects certain My Ride 65 convertible vehicle seats that were manufactured during the summer of 2014 and sold in the United States at list prices ranging from $119 to $199.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story mistakenly included information about a previous car-seat recall. "After further discussion with NHTSA, and a meeting on May 3, 2017, Graco has made a decision to conduct a safety recall to remedy that batch of sewn webbing", according to the NHTSA report.

Graco has traced the problem to a single batch of webbing and says it'll provide owners a replacement harness free of charge. Owners may contact Graco customer service at 1-800-345-4109.
