Bill Cosby faces retrial in sex assault case


The trial of Cosby, who lives on a compound in Shelburne, began June 5 and was in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.

Dunham tweeted "Bill Cosby's trial is about much more than Bill Cosby".

Bill Cosby accuser Andrea Constand leaves after the judge declared a mistrial on Satruday. "Heinously and exploitively ambitious", she wrote in a statement posted on Bill Cosby's Facebook page.

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

"He remains on bail and accused on all counts". Jury selection continues for the sexual assault trial of disgraced USA megastar Bill Cosby, accused of plying a woman with pills and wine before assaulting her in 2004. She also asked for privacy for her and her family.

"This is neither a vindication or a victory", said O'Neill, who praised the jurors for their service and asked them not to discuss their deliberations.

After Cosby and his two lawyers filed out, Constand stood in the courtroom surrounded by four other women who had accused Cosby of assault.

"How do I describe the counsels for the accusers?" He confirmed that the alleged victim, Andrea Constand, would testify again at the new trial.

Attorney Gloria Allred, who represents other Cosby accusers, said outside the courthouse that "we can never underestimate the blinding power of celebrity" and vowed that "justice will come". Overtly and arrogantly collaborating with the District Attorney.

An eighth woman withdrew her lawsuit and a federal judge dismissed a ninth accuser's case, finding her complaint inadequate.

He did not give evidence, leaving it to his lawyer Brian McMonagle to argue Cosby and Constand were lovers and the encounter was consensual.

Although Bill Cosby's sexual assault trial ended in a mistrial, his legal problems persist as he faces assault and defamation claims in civil lawsuits, where the bar for evidence is lower than in criminal cases.

Pennsylvania law allows sentencing judges to consider uncharged conduct. Constand testified that she was planning to leave her job at Temple and embark on a new career plan and had been feeling stressed. Jurors were unable to render a unanimous verdict on the three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault Cosby had been charged with. At the time Constand worked as the director of operations for the women's basketball program at Temple University.

Dozens of women have come forward to say he had drugged and assaulted them. The case was settled in March 2006 after months of depositions that would come back to haunt Cosby. The jury is set to return for a fifth day of deliberations on Friday at 9 a.m.

Jurors have already discussed the case for more than 50 hours since Monday, leading to Cosby's lawyer to push for a mistrial.

By Thursday morning, after almost 30 hours of discussions spanning three days, the jurors told O'Neill they were at a stalemate. The jurors have been trying to break a deadlock. If found guilty he could have faced up to 10 years in prison on each charge. The entertainer, once known as America's Dad, offered Father's Day greetings to well-wishers outside the courthouse after court adjourned.

The jurors will get back to work Saturday morning.

Stay on topic - This helps keep the thread focused on the discussion at hand.

"This case is about a drug-facilitated sexual assault and it doesn't matter what you look like or who you are".

Be Civil - It's OK to have a difference in opinion but there's no need to be a jerk.
