Mistrial declared in Cosby case after jury deadlocks again

Bill Cosby faces retrial on sexual assault charges Bill Cosby faces retrial on sexual assault charges

According to Constand, Cosby told her they were herbal remedies.

But if the man once adored by millions as "America's Dad" escaped conviction today, prosecutor Kevin Steele said that he meant to seek a re-trial as authorised in such cases under the law.

Spokesman Andrew Wyatt said Saturday that "Cosby's power is back".

Cosby's legacy in the years to come will somehow have to balance his decades of groundbreaking entertainment achievements, his considerable philanthropic work and his cultivated image of the benevolent moral authority, with the dozens of accusations of reprehensible personal behavior over those same decades - accusations that remain unresolved and may be far from over.

The prosecutors will now have four months to decide whether to retry Cosby on the same charges at a later date.

The entertainer had no visible reaction in court. The judge told them to try again for a verdict.

Jewel Allison, yet another accuser, stated outside the courthouse, as church bells tolled, "I think God is watching all of us", NBC News reported. The signed statement was read by Ebonee Benson, Camille Cosby's publicist. How do I describe the judge?

But Steele, the district attorney, said it was no accident that some of Constand's memories were faulty.

Around 60 women have publicly accused the Emmy-winning actor in recent years of being a serial sexual predator, alleging that he drugged and assaulted them over a span of 40 years across the United States.


After the questioning was done, Cosby sat back in his chair, holding a slender cane that has been with him inside the courtroom each day to his chest.

There's no doubt he had sexual contact with Constand (Cosby contends it was consensual).

Cosby's starring role as beloved dad Heathcliff Huxtable in "The Cosby Show", along with years of family-friendly standup comedy routines, made him a household name. He became an in-demand product endorser, appearing in commercials for Jell-O, Coca-Cola and Ford.

But his live performing career stalled in 2015, as multiple accusers began going public with their stories. The deposition's in Constand's civil suit were released and the Montgomery County D.A.'s office chose to reopen the case and arrested Cosby. The charges against him are three felony charges of aggravated indecent assault. As deliberations wore on, Cosby thanked his fans and supporters - first in a tweet, then in brief comments as he left the courthouse Friday night.

Meanwhile, Constand's attorneys are "confident that these proceedings have given a voice to the many victims who felt powerless and silenced", they said in a statement.

The seven-man, five-woman panel had spent around 53 hours deliberating in Norristown, Pennsylvania, longer than the amount of time dedicated at the trial to testimony and legal arguments. After 30 hours of deliberation, the jury announced on Thursday morning that they were deadlocked.

The trial drew intense media attention, with more than 100 credentials issued for print, online, television and radio reporters.

The deliberation was longer than the trial itself.

They argued Cosby gave that testimony with the understanding that he wouldn't face criminal charges.
