Bill Cosby arrives for his sexual assault trial at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pa., Saturday, June 17, 2017.
A mistrial was declared for Bill Cosby's sexual assault case, after a "jury deadlock" for the second time.
Since Thursday morning, when the jurors told Montgomery County Court of Common Pleas Judge Steven O'Neill they were having trouble reaching agreement, they have spent almost 24 hours either discussing the case in a conference room or re-hearing trial testimony in the courtroom.
BLOCK: Goldie, 60 - some 60 women have accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault. The jury announced it was deadlocked on all three counts on Thursday before lunch but Judge O'Neill sent them back to try again after first denying the Cosby defense team's motion for a mistrial.
How do I describe the counsels for the accusers? Even so, they have been unable to decide the fate of the 79-year-old Cosby.
The Montgomery County District Attorney's office said it will immediately retry the case.
Constand initially reported her assault to the police in 2005, but the District Attorney at the time decided not to press charges. Cosby faced three charges of aggravated indecent assault.
In a statement, her lawyers thanked the prosecution for taking her case and said the trial had "given a voice to the many victims who felt powerless and silenced". Anyone who has ever been hurt, or known someone hurt knows how hard it is to come forward. Instead, she targeted the prosecutor, O'Neill and some members of the media in a statement read by a publicist outside the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Penn. Do you find it odd that only one woman has brought criminal charges against him instead of seeking a monetary resolution? Cosby says the encounter was consensual.
"Mr. Cosby does not intend to dignify these allegations with any comment".
Then, a Twitter meme campaign by the Cosby team went awry.
Defense attorney, Angela Agrusa, portrayed Constand as a woman who changed her story to many times and should not be believed. Lets walk together as one family to solve our differences peacefully, clearly we must work toward creating a peaceful egalitarian society.
The jury has yet to come to a decision in #Bill Cosby's trial in Pennsylvania.
"You ingratiated yourself into this woman's life", Steele continued, talking directly to Cosby in regard to the alleged sexual assault. They had apparently asked 12 questions during the proceedings and spent over 53 hours working on the case.
A jury deliberated for more than 52 hours over six days before declaring itself hopelessly deadlocked.
After the mistrial was declared, some of the women who have accused Cosby of sexual assault in past decades were crying as they gathered around Constand to console her.
She commended Johnson and others for testifying, and thank all the accusers who have spoken out. "It has been restored", said Andrew Wyatt, his spokesman.
The USGA said it would provide complimentary bottled water at all drinking water stations for the rest of the tournament. He made four birdies over the last six holes to salvage a 71, but he still missed the cut for the second straight year.
