Mistrial declared in Cosby sex case

Mistrial declared in Cosby sex case

The case seemed to reflect both sides of the public narrative exactly, defense arguing Cosby used his power, wealth, and authority to take advantage of younger women while prosecution painted the alleged victims as purely in it for the money.

Deliberations in Bill Cosby's sex assault trial are pushing into Father's Day weekend after jurors failed to reach a verdict in the first five days.

The jury must decide whether or not they want to charge the comedian at a later date.

.

If they can't break the deadlock, O'Neill could declare a hung jury and a mistrial.

"Our case goes on independently", Dickinson's lawyer, Lisa Bloom, said.

"She's entitled to a verdict in this case."

Constand was the Temple University women's basketball team manager, and Cosby was a significant donor to the school, as well as a member of the board of trustees.

NY lawyer Paul Callan, a former prosecutor, said he thought it would "exceptionally difficult" for the state to win a second trial against Cosby.




Ms Constand told the court in Norristown, Pennsylvania that she had seen Cosby as a mentor figure and went to his home in January 2004 to seek careers advice. Cosby maintained that the sex he had with Constand at his home in January of 2004 was consensual.

She also attacked the judge, the accuser's lawyers and the media.

"Rehearing testimony in this case is revictimization for everyone that's been the victim of sexual assault and rape".

The statement was read outside the Norristown, Pa., courthouse, where the jury declared themselves "hopelessly deadlocked" after 52 hours of deliberation in the case of accuser Andrea Constand. She called the judge overtly arrogant and collaborating with the district attorney. It just means that this is an opportunity to retry it", she said, adding: "It's not over till it's over. "It has been restored".

The meaning of the phrase "without her knowledge" in one of the three counts against him. He also found success with his "Fat Albert" animated TV show and starred in commercials for Jell-O pudding. The charges against Cosby remain in place. Prosecutors have suggested he gave her something stronger, possibly quaaludes.

The judge said he saw no evidence of coercion or trouble in the deliberating room after the jurors reported their impasse on Thursday and he instructed them to keep trying for a verdict.

Judge Steven O'Neill said on Saturday morning that the note from jury "indicates that we the jury are deadlocked on all counts".
