Camille Cosby claims 'overtly arrogant' judge collaborated with 'exploitively ambitious' DA

Johnson is one of more than 50 women who have accused the comedian of sexual assault.

Cindra Ladd, in a statement issued through her spokesman, said she takes "comfort knowing that Bill Cosby's life is now, and forever will be, a living hell". Cosby faces a possible maximum sentence of 15 to 30 years in prison if convicted of the charges.

The judge in the Bill Cosby trial declared a mistrial Saturday after the jury failed to reach a verdict in the case. The twelve-person jury had been deliberating since late Monday, working morning to night; they asked twelve questions, revisited large portions of the evidence, and reported themselves deadlocked on Thursday, only to be ordered back into deliberations by the judge.

The decision, Steele told the court, "lies in the fact that she's entitled to a verdict in this case".

Then, a Twitter meme campaign by the Cosby team went awry. He is accused of assaulting Andrea Constand without her consent, assaulting her when she was unconscious and assaulting her using drugs to substantially impair her ability to consent in his home outside of Philadelphia, in Elkins Park, in early 2004.

Cosby's defense lawyers, however, argued that Constand's account could not be trusted after they pointed to numerous discrepancies in her statements to police in 2005, when she first reported the alleged incident almost a year later.

Troiani acknowledged the difficulty of the case, given the passage of time and the impact of the alleged drugging on Constand's ability to recall details.

Cosby's team immediately went on the attack.

Since the ruling, Camille Cosby has releases a statement criticising the judge and the District Attorney, along with a quick pop at the media too.


District Attorney Kevin Steele spoke to reporters after the judge declared a mistrial Saturday. He ordered them to keep trying but declared a mistrial June 17, the sixth day of their deliberations. "It has been restored".

Cosby broke barriers as the first black actor to star in a network show, "I Spy", in the 1960s and created the top-ranked "Cosby Show" two decades later, starring as kindly Dr. Cliff Huxtable. He also found success with his "Fat Albert" animated TV show and starred in commercials for Jell-O pudding.

Tamara Green, the next woman to publicly accuse Cosby after Constand, filed a defamation suit.

In defending their client, Cosby's lawyers have invoked the changing public discussion around sexual assault to imply that the deck is stacked against him-to imply that female accusers have developed an unfair, outsized power against men. Andrea Constand says Cosby gave her pills that made her paralyzed and unable to fight him off as he groped her breast and genitals. Prosecutors suggested he drugged her with something stronger.

By Thursday morning, after almost 30 hours of discussions spanning three days, the jurors told O'Neill they were at a stalemate. "A mistrial is simply the justice system at work", O'Neill said, thanking jurors and urging them not to feel that they let the justice system down. How do I describe the judge?

"I get emotional how hard you've worked", O'Neil said. The jury, from the Pittsburgh area, has been sequestered for two weeks about 300 miles from home.

Ahead of the trial, Gloria Allred told Vulture she knows juries can be unpredictable.

While 44-year-old Constand is praying for justice the District Attorney in Norristown, Pa., the only prosecutor to take a drugging and rape case against Cosby to trial, says he will purse a new trial.

The mistrial was a blow to the dozens of women who have said they were sexually assaulted by Cosby.
