DA Vows To "Get Justice" After Bill Cosby Mistrial

DA Vows To DA Vows To "Get Justice" After Bill Cosby Mistrial

"We can not come to a unanimous consensus on any of the charges", the note read.

"There's a misperception that there's a time limit", he said.

Prosecutors immediately said they would seek a retrial. Cosby stared silently ahead, motionless, as each juror said yes when asked by the judge whether their deadlock would not be resolved by further deliberations.

But victims say that there isn't sufficient awareness about how such a power differential can be used to an attacker's advantage - particularly when it comes to persuading them to abandon their judgment.

"It can never be clearer that if you speak up, you could be chilling the justice system in the future if jurors are needed in this case", O'Neill told them. Constand told the jury she was merely returning his calls about the women's basketball squad at Temple University, where she was director of team operations and he was a member of the board of trustees.

But the funnyman is not out of the woods yet - he still faces several civil cases from a few of the almost 60 women who came forward accusing him of sexual assault. "We are confident that these proceedings have given a voice to the many victims who felt powerless and silenced".

Accuser Victoria Valentino, who attending the trial for two weeks, told NBC News that she would not give up her fight for the truth.

"It's extremely emotional", said Jewel Allison, a NY woman who has said that Cosby assaulted her, as she prepared to leave the courthouse. Her client in that case has accused Cosby of raping her at the Playboy mansion when she was just 15 years old. "Mr. Cosby is fortunate he is able to afford good counsel and has resources to conduct investigations".

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 frightful thing". She sued Cosby in a civil suit and settled for an undisclosed amount in 2006.

Vanity Fair quoted a police affidavit that said Bill Cosby had developed a friendship with Andrea Constand before he could act upon "that interest" of sexually assaulting her. Cosby apparently behaved like a father figure and advised her on various things in life.


We had reached a moment where those who allege sexual assault are believed more readily, particularly in the court of public opinion. "I wanted it to stop".

An eighth woman withdrew her lawsuit.

It took 52 hours for the jury of seven men and five women to decide that they could not decide the case. I also want to thank the supporters who have been here.

The hung jury outcome was not unexpected.

On Friday, the jurors appeared to be doing just that. Six more women eventually joined: Therese Serignese, Linda Traitz, Louisa Moritz, Barbara Bowman, Joan Tarshis and Angela Leslie.

O'Neill asked each juror if the impasse was impossible to resolve.

I think the verdict shows, once again, how hard it is to convict a celebrity of serious criminal charges, especially in a case that boils down to taking one non-famous person's word over the celebrity's account.

But the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office in Pennsylvania, said it would retry the case, Efe news reported.

Steele admitted he was "disappointed" but said his team would review their case and make tweaks. "He says she doesn't say yes", Steele said.
