Bill Cosby's Spox: Tell Gloria Allred to 'Go Back to Law School'

Judge declares mistrial in Cosby case after jurors fail to reach verdict

Judge declares mistrial in Cosby case after jurors fail to reach verdict

A former Temple University employee alleges that the entertainer drugged and molested her in 2004 at his home in suburban Philadelphia.

Bill Cosby is back in court for the sixth day of jury deliberations in his sexual assault trial. He pledged the three counts of aggravated indecent assault would stand and praised Constand's "courage".

Cosby also said he gave Constand three half-tablets of the cold and allergy medicine Benadryl to help her relax before what he insisted was a consensual sexual encounter at his home.

Dozens of women have come forward to say the comedian had drugged and assaulted them, but many of their cases were deemed too old to prosecute.

During Constand employment at Temple University as the director of operations for the women's basketball team, she met Cosby, an alumnus of the Philadelphia college. In that case, prosecutors would have the option of seeking to retry Cosby before a new jury.

After a lunch break, jurors are expected to rehear testimony from accuser Andrea Constand and her mother about phone calls with Cosby.

Cosby also tweeted a video of supporters outside the courthouse chanting, "Let Bill go". Overtly arrogant, collaborating with the district attorney.

Meanwhile, Constand's attorneys are "confident that these proceedings have given a voice to the many victims who felt powerless and silenced", they said in a statement.

Steele says he's disappointed the jury was unable to reach a unanimous decision. The judge had refused, saying jurors are permitted under the law to deliberate as long as they want.

Wednesday, the jury asked to hear portions of accuser Andrea Constand's testimony from last week and read-backs of police testimony about Cosby's 2005 interview with police at his attorney's NY law office.

The jurors clearly struggled with their verdict, telling the judge on Thursday they were at impasse. "And the jury stuck to what they were asked to do and that is to review the evidence before them and there simply wasn't enough". Cosby has denied all of the accusations. According to CNN, Judge Steven O'Neill declared the case a mistral as the jury comprising seven men and five women found themselves deadlocked after 53 hours of deliberations.

The Canadian said Cosby gave her three pills and wine before touching her breasts, putting his fingers in her vagina and putting her hand on his erect penis after she sought his advice about moving to Canada and switching careers.

Prosecutors have vowed to retry the 79-year-old, who is known for his long-running sitcom The Cosby Show.

Tamara Green, the next woman to publicly accuse Cosby after Constand, filed a defamation suit.

Cosby has been accused of drugging and abusing almost 60 women.

The portion of Constand's testimony where she talks about telephone calls she made to Cosby after she says he drugged and violated her.

Cosby declined to testify and the defense spent just minutes presenting their case, calling one witness and arguing that the evidence just did not exist to convict their client.
