Cosby jury deadlocked after four days of deliberations

Cosby jury deadlocked after four days of deliberations Cosby jury deadlocked after four days of deliberations

The jurors have appeared increasingly exhausted and upset as deliberations dragged on for almost 40 hours over four days.

Jury deliberations will resume Friday morning.

The jurors informed the judge on Thursday morning they were unable to reach a consensus on any of the charges, each of which carries a maximum 10-year prison sentence.

After they were directed to try to reach a verdict, the sequestered jurors deliberated for nine hours before asking to go back to their hotel.

It was the first Twitter message from Cosby in more than a week and came as jurors spent a fifth day in talks, trying to break an impasse that has raised the possibility of a mistrial for the 79-year-old TV star.

Attorney Gloria Allred walks to the podium to speak with members of the media during jury deliberations in Bill Cosby's sexual assault trial at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pa., Thursday, June 15, 2017.

Andrew Wyatt spotted Joe Molinaro, his wife and two children outside the Montgomery County Court House earlier in the week.

"It's incredibly important to these jurors", the judge said. Such scrutiny remained largely absent from the sexual assault trial of CBC Radio broadcaster Jian Ghomeshi, where the focus veered toward the complainants' behaviour after the alleged assaults, of which Ghomeshi was acquitted a year ago. Constand - an athletic, 6-foot-tall college basketball staffer - said they made her dazed and groggy, and unable to say no or fight back when Cosby went inside her trousers. Also, what does Andrea Constand think?

There was no message included with the video, which was soundtracked with the Harlem Globetrotters theme, and no explanation for why there was a basketball hoop in the courthouse. It says, "ALWAYS FOLLOW THROUGH". He says it was consensual.

"This is an incredible jury that has just acted with incredible dignity and fidelity", O'Neill said.

Lili Bernard, another alleged Cosby sexual assault survivor, clashed with Cosby supporters outside the courthouse Thursday afternoon.


The jurors sent the note announcing their deadlock just after 11 a.m.

There were fans and protestors outside of the courthouse, with some of them protesting the news and others hugging one another in happiness.

Many were chanting and holding signs reading "Free Mr. Cosby". If the last attempt produces a hung jury, O'Neill will declare a mistrial.

Jurors also asked the court to define the phrase "without her knowledge" in one of the charges, and asked to rehear testimony from the Cheltenham police detective who interviewed Cosby.

Constand's lawyer, Dolores Troiani, said only that the "jury is apparently working very hard".

Cosby is charged with three counts of aggravated indecent assault. Constand claims that Cosby who she saw as a father figure drugged her and then sexually assaulted her. Cosby's defense team pointed out that after the so-called assault, Constand continued a relationship with Cosby. A toxicologist called to testify by prosecutors said Benadryl had been used by a serial rapist in Great Britain, and that Cosby gave Constand enough of the medication - 1 1/2 pills - to make her drowsy.

Dozens of women have come forward to say he had drugged and assaulted them.

If Cosby is found guilty, a big question will be whether O'Neill revokes Cosby's bond and sends the entertainer to jail.

Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele, right, Montgomery County Assistant District Attorney Kristen, center, and Bill Cosby's defense attorney Angela Agrusa enter the courtroom during jury deliberat.

The panel got the case on Monday. Prosecutors have suggested he might have given her quaaludes.

Some jurors appeared angry, the judge sounded exasperated and Constand's mother broke down in tears Wednesday.
