The county's top prosecutor also was blunt about his opinions of Blake.
"Quite frankly, based on my review of the evidence, he is as guilty as sin. He is a miserable human being," Cooley said Wednesday, noting that prosecutors presented a strong case.
One juror said Cooley is upset simply because he lost a big case.
"To hear him say we aren't a smart jury is sour grapes," said Chuck Safko. "They didn't have a good case. Their case was built around witnesses who weren't truthful."
On March 16, jurors acquitted Blake of first-degree murder in the May 4, 2001 killing of his wife, Bonny Lee Bakley (search), who was found shot in a car outside a restaurant where the couple had dined.
Blake's attorney, M. Gerald Schwartzbach (search), said Cooley's attack on jurors is inappropriate and "small-minded."
