Mistrial declared in Bill Cosby sexual assault case

Parmenio Sano | 18 Giugno, 2017, 04:02

Actor and comedian Bill Cosby arrives for the sixth day of deliberations in his sexual assault trial at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pennsylvania, U.S., June 17, 2017.

O'Neill reminded Cosby, 79, that the three counts of aggravated indecent assault remain intact and that he will remain free on 10 percent of $1 million bail, pending the retrial, which some hinted may occur within 120 days.

Allred and her daughter Lisa Bloom represent various accusers in civil cases against Cosby.

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".

The entertainer had no visible reaction in court. In that case, prosecutors would have the option of seeking to retry Cosby before a new jury.

Much has been said and written about the sex scandal that has torpedoed Bill Cosby's legacy - so much so that it can be hard to recall how he reached the point of facing trial on three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault. Heinously and exploitatively ambitious. In the statement, which Bill Cosby later tweeted, she attacked Judge O'Neill, describing him as "overtly arrogant" and accusing him of "collaborating with the district attorney".

Lawyers for Constand released their own statement Saturday afternoon, thanking the district attorney's office and "the many police officers and detectives who worked on this case".

According to the prosecutors of the case, they will be retrying Cosby, who has infamously been accused of dozens of counts of using celebrity, drugs and wealth to sexually assault women. She said that the star brought her three blue pills, telling her they would help her relax and they were safe.


"I personally can not thank Andrea Constand enough", she said. His lawyers said they were in a romantic relationship and what happened was consensual.

His popularity also made him an in-demand product endorser, and he appeared in commercials for Jell-O, Coca-Cola, Ford and others.

But his live performing career stalled in 2015, as multiple accusers began going public with their stories. It took Constand nearly a year to confide in her parents what happened, and they reported the incident to police in January 2005. Constand says the star drugged and molested her in 2004 at his home outside of Philadelphia.

In closing, Camille sent a special thanked friends, family, staff members, and supporters.

Cosby lawyer Brian McMonagle says jurors might think they have to deliberate until "the cows come home".

Even the former district attorney in the Constand case piled on, saying he thought Cosby lied to authorities. The jurors did not mention anything about the deadlock again until Saturday when they announced they were "hopelessly deadlocked" and that the deadlock could not be resolved by additional deliberations.

"All Americans accused of a crime are entitled to a trial by a jury of their peers". Constand claimed Cosby placed her on a couch, touched her breasts, forced her to touch his penis and performed digital penetration all without her consent.
