Camille Cosby bashes prosecutors following husband's mistrial

Acilia Dean | 18 Giugno, 2017, 04:47

As previously reported, the jury of seven men and five women deliberated for more than 50 hours over a six-day period before ultimately telling the judge there was "hopeless deadlock that can not be resolved on further deliberations".

The Cosby camp blasted back at Allred, accusing the civil attorney of being a publicity hound throughout the civil trial.

Bill Cosby leaves the Montgomery County Courthouse during his sexual assault trial, Friday, June 16, 2017, in Norristown, Pa.

Prosecutors in the case have since confirmed they will retry Cosby on the same counts.

Cosby is accused of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand, the former director of women's basketball operations at Temple University, at his Cheltenham mansion in mid-January 2004.

The post USA judge declares mistrial in Cosby sex assault case appeared first on The Independent Uganda:.

Then, a Twitter meme campaign by the Cosby team went awry.

Under questioning from her lawyer, Cosby acknowledged that he had obtained several prescriptions for quaaludes in the 1970s for the objective of offering the powerful sedative to women he wanted to have sex with. He expressed disappointment over the mistrial, praised the "extraordinary sacrifices' of the jury and said a "good outcome" of the trial was that two Cosby accusers "got to face the defendant in court".

Cosby's wife, Camille, who attended just one day of the trial, issued a fierce statement on Saturday, read out by a representative. "It's back." He also suggested that lawyers representing alleged victims, including celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred, "go back to law school and take another class".

"How do I describe many, but not all, general media?"


Cosby presented himself as a sort of moral leader and advocate for responsibility: His controversial "pound cake" speech excoriated poor black Americans for what he described as ignorance and poor parenting. Cosby has denied all of the charges, and has only been criminally charged in the Constand case.

They cited Cosby's own statements that he gave her pills and touched her sexually and called another accuser to the stand to make the case that Cosby had a pattern of drugging and assaulting women. The jurors could not reach a unanimous decision after more than 50 hours of deliberation, announcing they were hopelessly deadlocked.

Judge Steven O'Neill refused, saying there's no precedent to halt the jury's work.

On Saturday, after they reported to O'Neill they were at an impasse and would not be able to reach a consensus, he was forced to call a mistrial.

It wasn't immediately known how many jurors wanted to convict and how many wanted to acquit. "I see you. I love you".

"I remind everyone this is not vindication or victory".

It was the only criminal case to arise from allegations from more than 60 women that cast Cosby as a serial predator who gave drugs to women before violating them.

Bruce Castor, the ex-prosecutor who passed on Constand's case in 2005, said Saturday that he was disappointed but not surprised in Steele's failure to win a conviction. McMonagle has said Wyatt was not speaking at his direction.
