Bill Cosby's sexual assault case ends in mistrial

A judge recently denied Mr Cosby's motion to dismiss the case, and a trial has been scheduled for June 2018.

Judge Steven O'Neill declared the mistrial on Saturday when the jury in Montgomery County, Pennsilvania, claimed to be "hopelessly deadlocked" after six days of deliberations.

Cosby is not out of the woods yet, as the district attorney from Montgomery County, Penn., could choose to retry the case.

"I was relieved when they said mistrial, because it means that it wasn't an acquittal", says Linda Kirkpatrick, who is not involved in the current case but is one of dozens of women who have accused the entertainer of sexual assault. Cosby's trial ended without a verdict.

Cosby, on the contrary, said Constand never stopped him when he made his moves.

The repeated reexamination of key testimony from both Constand and Cosby supports the theory that jurors were likely torn between who to believe and what happened on the night in question.

NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) - Bill Cosby, the comedian once known as "America's Dad" for his TV role as paternal Dr. Cliff Huxtable, is declaring victory this Father's Day after a jury deliberated 52 hours without reaching consensus on charges he drugged and molested a woman in 2004.

Gloria Allred, attorney representing 33 of the more than 60 women who have publicly accused Cosby of assaulting them over 40 years, also spoke to the media on Saturday.

'Steele wants me badly; he ran on getting me but he doesn't have a case, ' he is claimed to have said at one stage.

Constand met Cosby at Temple when she worked there as director of operations for the university's women's basketball team.

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. And a federal judge dismissed a ninth accuser's case, finding her complaint inadequate.

In a recorded deposition, the TV star confessed to plying women with sedatives before having sex with them. O'Neill instructed them to keep working toward a unanimous decision. Was the case simply not as strong as prosecutors hoped? "I see you. I love you". "T he prosecution needed 12 for a verdict - the defense only needed one for a mistrial". It's expected that both sides will be looking for jurors who are unbiased and, no matter what they know of the case or Cosby, that they'll be able to judge based on the evidence presented in the courtroom. Constand has done so.
