Cosby judge declares mistrial as jury deadlocks again

The words of women claiming that Cosby assaulted them, either in the news media or in a court of law, don't prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Cosby did in fact assault them, particularly when he and his legal team are denying it.
Constand initially went to police about a year after she said Cosby assaulted her, but a prosecutor declared her case too weak to bring charges. About 60 women have made similar allegations, although only Constand's is recent enough to sustain a criminal prosecution.
The case is the culmination of a tide of accusations against Cosby, who was once known as "America's dad". This mistrial result in the Cosby case, however, offers a flawless example of why women so rarely report sexual assault.
Former federal prosecutor David Weinstein said Cosby's celebrity nearly certainly played a role in the jury's deliberations, perhaps to convince "two or three jurors that it's impossible to convict Dr. Huxtable, to convict Fat Albert. that he couldn't have done this disgusting thing". Cosby's lawyer says he and Constand were lovers sharing a consensual sexual encounter. McMonagle has said Wyatt was not speaking at his direction.
The jury has spent days reviewing large chunks of trial testimony, including both Cosby's and Constand's accounts of the night in question. With the help of attorney Gloria Allred, they compelled Cosby's wife, Camille Cosby, to sit for a deposition.
On Saturday, they came back and told Judge O'Neill they were hopelessly deadlocked.
"The defamation case is this clever way of saying, If I say you raped me and you say it didn't happen, then you're defaming me by calling me a liar", he said.
While Agrusa spoke, Cosby stood silently behind her, his head occasionally tilting back, looking toward the sky. Lets walk together as one family to solve our differences peacefully, clearly we must work toward creating a peaceful egalitarian society.
She said she hopes more accusers can testify "because that's relevant on the issue of whether Mr. Cosby had a plan, a scheme, to drug and sexually assault women".
After the jury could not reach a verdict in the Bill Cosby case, the judge declared a mistrial on Saturday, reports ABC News. Before the trial, a probable cause affidavit laid out her version of events, which she says occurred between mid-January and mid-February of 2004.
Cosby was charged with three counts of aggravated indecent assault.
Although he said his team will re-evaluate the case, "the charges are what they are".
"Rehearing testimony in this case is revictimization for everyone that's been the victim of sexual assault and rape".
Former teen actor Barbara Bowman told her story to many media outlets in the years after Constand went public. We commend those prosecutors who raise awareness that one of the hallmarks of drug-related sexual assaults is the affect the drug has on the victim's memory and the ability to recall and were nonetheless willing to present this evidence to the jury. On Thursday, jurors announced they were deadlocked. The deliberation was longer than the trial itself.
