Mistrial Declared In Bill Cosby's Sexual Assault Case, DA 'Will Retry'

Bill Cosby faces retrial on sexual assault charges

Cosby has denied all allegations of sexual assault levied against him.

Although the case ended in a mistrial, District Attorney Kevin Steele immediately announced plans to retry Cosby on the same charges, promising to "move the case forward as soon as possible".

Constand's attorneys released a statement following the mistrial, thanking both the jury and the prosecutors in the case. "Anything can happen in this world", Jim Carrey, who said he had Cosby's albums back in the day but who also knows from being the target of salacious claims, said on The Howard Stern Show last week.

Despite dozens of women going public with accusations of sexual assault, Constand's case was the only one to result in criminal charges, although a number of civil lawsuits are still pending.

The complainant, Andrea Constand, is a Canadian and the former director of operations of the women's basketball team at Temple University.

The judgement came after the jury remained deadlocked on whether the fallen star was guilty of drugging and molesting a woman in 2004.

"I've been there as her support person and an advocate for assault survivors all around the country", Philadelphia trauma therapist Shari Botwin told The Wrap.

Linda Kirkpatrick, one of the women accusing Cosby of sexual assault, told CNN shortly after the mistrial the entire ordeal had forced those accusing the star to relive a frightful time in their lives.

In another visit he gave her a mix of pills and wine that left her feeling "frozen" and "paralyzed" as he fondled her body and placed his hand on his genitals, the affidavit said.

Perriello is touting his progressive credentials and has the support of the Vermont senator as well as Massachusetts Sen. Northam is a more traditional candidate who stresses his pragmatic approach and ability to work with Republicans.

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.

Former federal prosecutor David Weinstein said Cosby's celebrity nearly certainly played a role in the jury's deliberations, perhaps to convince "two or three jurors that it's impossible to convict Dr. Huxtable, to convict Fat Albert. that he couldn't have done this disgusting thing".

Outside the courtroom, standing at the top of the main steps, Cosby's publicist read a statement from Camille Cosby - Bill Cosby's wife - criticizing the judge, prosecution and attorneys of Cosby's other accusers for their conduct through the trial.

O'Neill only allowed Johnson to testify.

Cosby had broken barriers as the first black actor to star in a network show, "I Spy", in the 1960s and, two decades later, created the top-ranked "Cosby Show".

But the trial has irrevocably damaged his legacy as a towering figure in USA popular culture, once adored for his seminal role as a lovable father and obstetrician on hit TV series "The Cosby Show". She did not comment publicly. Allred said that "we can never underestimate the blinding power of celebrity" and vowed that "justice will come".

North Philadelphia native and activist Bird Milliken, who said she attended every other day of the trial, on Saturday held a sign that read "Perseverance to All Survivors".

The defense sought to emphasize inconsistencies in Constand's testimony upon cross examination, according to multiple media reports.
