Mistrial declared in Bill Cosby case after jury deadlocks again

Bill Cosby faces retrial on sexual assault charges

Constand is one of many women accusing the 79-year-old of drugging, coercion, and assault.

Cosby's trial started June 5 in Norristown, Pennsylvania.

The judge declared a mistrial after jurors deadlocked on the charges after six days.

The next month, Constand filed a lawsuit claiming battery, sexual assault, intentional infliction of emotional distress and other claims. He didn't know we are seeds....

The prosecutor, Kevin Steele, says he will retry Bill Cosby. How do I describe the judge? Nearly a decade passed, and no criminal charges were filed.

Count 1 alleges that Cosby didn't have consent when he penetrated Constand's genitals with his fingers.

Smolla said the outcome of any civil case would depend on how jurors behave in terms of how seriously they take the case, how they relate to one another and how they deal with holdout jurors.

Olivia Wilde retweeted justice writer Shaun King, who said, "How will our justice system sensibly hold ANY men accountable for sexual assault when the President of the United States gets away with it?" The defense tried to block the deposition from trial, but since there was no written agreement in 2005 with then D.A. Bruce Castor not to charge Cosby, he agreed to the deposition.

Dozens of them have been in court over the past two weeks.

Steele said some good things came out of the trial, most significantly, that Constand was able to face Cosby in court and tell her story.


According to the documents, lawyer Dolores Troiani asked Cosby: "When you got the Quaaludes, was it in your mind that you were going to use these Quaaludes for young women that you wanted to have sex with?"

Legal experts had always warned that the "he said, she said" nature of the case was always going to be hard to prove in court, not least because it happened so long ago and due to a lack of physical evidence.

Judge Steven O'Neill said on Saturday morning that the note from jury "indicates that we the jury are deadlocked on all counts". "As a very special friend once stated, 'Truth can be subdued, but not destroyed.'" Camille Cosby also thanked her husband's lawyers, other staff members, family and friends for their support.

Outside the courthouse, Cosby stood with head bowed as his publicist and attorneys made statements over shouted questions from waiting media.

"It's too early to celebrate, Mr. Cosby", Gloria said. "I feel bad for all of you, I really do".

Prosecutors argued Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted Constand.

The jury deliberated more than 52 hours on charges that Cosby drugged and molested Andrea Constand in his Philadelphia area home in 2004.

Musical artist and producer Dready tweeted "Guilty or not, this trial will be a dark cloud over Bill Cosby's whole career forever". "Our plan is to move this case forward as soon as possible", he said.

Tristan Rhodeside, 22, who graduated from Temple this year and was already wearing an alumni shirt Saturday, said the outpouring of accusations against Cosby reflected what he called the "call-out culture".
