Mistrial declared in Cosby case after jury deadlocks again

Actor and comedian Bill Cosby reacts after a judge declared a mistrial in his sexual assault trial at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown

Victoria, a former Playboy model who has accused Bill Cosby of drugging and raping her decades ago, had a message for him: "You're not off the hook, buddy". We are sprouting up.

"I hope that the prosecution will try this case again and that the next time the court will permit more priority bad act witnesses to testify as the prosecution had requested for this trial", Allred said.

Constand's attorneys released a statement following the mistrial, thanking both the jury and the prosecutors in the case.

Cosby lawyer Brian McMonagle fired back that jurors might be under the assumption they have to deliberate until "the cows come home".

A conviction could send Cosby to prison for the rest of his life, but the case has already helped demolish Cosby's nice-guy image, cultivated during his eight-year run as Dr. Cliff Huxtable on "The Cosby Show", the top-rated 1980s and '90s sitcom. At the time, Constand worked at Cosby's alma mater, Temple University.

"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.

"When they don't, survivors of sexual assault have to watch every day as the legal system calls them liars and denies their truth", Dunham went on to say. His attorneys have said throughout that their client is innocent of all accusations. He admits to giving her Benadryl.

Judge Steven O'Neill, of the Montgomery County Court of Common Pleas, declared a mistrial at 10:17 a.m., following a note from jurors saying that they were hopelessly deadlocked on three counts of aggravated sexual assault.

In civil lawsuits in the United States, plaintiffs need only show that the weight of evidence is on their side, meaning they have information to tip the scales above 50 percent in their favor, as opposed to criminal cases in which prosecutors must prove claims beyond a reasonable doubt. "It has been restored", Wyatt said.

Vladimir Putin critic reportedly detained before Moscow protest
For that reason, he said he was unilaterally switching the venue to Tverskaya Street, Moscow's main avenue near the Kremlin. An Associated Press reporter saw about 50 protesters seized by police in the gathering at Mars Field.

Jewel Allison, yet another accuser, stated outside the courthouse, as church bells tolled, "I think God is watching all of us", NBC News reported. The criminal complaint, filed in December of 2015, came just under the Pennsylvania's 12-year statute of limitations.

"Our plan is to move this case forward as soon as possible", he said. She did not comment publicly.

"I just want to wish all of the fathers a happy Father's Day", Cosby said.

Gloria Allred, an attorney who represents many of Cosby's accusers, told reporters Saturday outside court in Norristown that it's "not over until it's over".

Legal experts had always warned that the "he said, she said" nature of the case was always going to be hard to prove in court, not least because it happened so long ago and due to a lack of physical evidence.

"I don't know what to think after being the subject [himself] of opportunistic lawyers, you know, exploitation".

Five women and seven men spent nearly three days pondering if giving someone sleeping pills and then fondling and putting their hand inside the other person's vagina constituted sexual assault.

"I think the jury will be better served if they can hear from the other accusers and then they can make that decision as to whether or not they would convict and whether an alleged victim was in the position to consent or was incapacitated by drugs".
