Gloria Allred to Bill Cosby: "Round 2 is coming"

Share

Mr Cosby, 79, is accused of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in 2004.

The Associated Press does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, which Constand has done.

But it was Cosby's reputation as a public moralist who urged young people to pull up their saggy trousers and start acting responsibly that prompted a federal judge to unseal portions of an explosive deposition he gave more than a decade ago as part of Constand's civil lawsuit against him.

Surely, observers said, Cosby's defense team had a steep hill to climb.

"We commend those prosecutors who raised awareness that one of the hallmarks of drug-related sexual assaults is the effect the drug has on the victim's memory and ability to recall and were nonetheless willing to present this evidence to the jury", she said in a statement that her attorneys released to United States media.

During the trial Cosby did not take the stand but excerpts from his 2005 to 2006 depositions in a vicil suit brought on by Constand were read aloud.

"A mistrial means there was no conviction, there was no acquittal". She came to on his bed with her dress around her waist, and then woke up at home, not knowing how she'd gotten there, she said. What was the tilt toward guilty or not guilty?

Laurie Levenson, professor of law at Loyola University, agreed that knowing the jury split would be an important factor.

Bill Cosby countersued them in December 2015, saying they defamed him.

In Norristown, Pennsylvania, the jury struggled for days to agree on which version of the night in question to believe: Constand's or Cosby's.

District Attorney Kevin Steele said immediately after the mistrial that he would retry Cosby. "Sometimes you get what you need".

What advantages would attorneys have the second time around?

The initial sign of a divide among the jury came Thursday morning, when they sent a note saying they were deadlocked for the first time.

"I'm here for them", Gloria said.

"They've been intimate", he said in his closing statement.

What other factors might be in play here?

After a preliminary hearing, a judge decided there was enough evidence for him to stand trial. But like that Rolling Stone song says "you don't always get what you want".

Under questioning from her lawyer, Cosby acknowledged that he had obtained several prescriptions for quaaludes in the 1970s for the objective of offering the powerful sedative to women he wanted to have sex with. "We're here because of them".

He also said he knew he would face public scrutiny regardless of how the trial ended.

A sliver of Gianna Constand's testimony that the jury had just heard. For the last few years, his TV shows, films, and recorded stand-up performances, one-time broadcast staples, have been considered too toxic to touch, and with the mistrial, they are likely to remain so. Until some of the jurors speak out, however, "it is all a mystery", Levenson said. "As I said in court, our plan is to move this case forward as soon as possible".
