Cosby's team attacks judge likely to retry him in sex case

Bill Cosby arrived at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown Pennsylvania on Saturday

But the judge sent them back to try to reach a unanimous verdict.

But the comedian was positive, McMonagle said. On Saturday, they came back and told him they were hopelessly deadlocked. A judge recently denied Cosby's motion to dismiss the case, and a trial has been scheduled for June 2018.

Prosecutors have already stated they will retry the case that accused the TV icon of drugging and rapping Andrea Constand at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004. O'Neill instructed them to keep working toward a unanimous decision.

"Anything can happen because it's a new set of jurors", Levenson said. "I'm sorry it's causing everyone frustration, but the law requires that I allow a deliberating jury to continue to deliberate". Other jurors were harder to read.

The judge in the trial could soon hear a petition to release juror names. The charges against Cosby remain in place. In a recent Los Angeles Times piece, comedian/producer Larry Wilmore noted that while some will be able to compartmentalize their view of a comic whose Hall of Fame credentials earned him the title "America's dad", this unsavory chapter "will overshadow his career". "And I want to thank the jury for their long days". Cosby has given a sealed deposition in the case.

A decade later, a new district attorney reopened the investigation after Cosby's lurid testimony about drugs and sex became public, and dozens of women came forward against one of the most beloved stars in all of show business. In July 2015, a judge unsealed Cosby's deposition in the 2006 civil lawsuit.

It was the only criminal case to arise from allegations from more than 60 women that cast Cosby - married more than 50 years - as a serial predator who gave drugs to women before violating them.

Constand, who worked at Cosby's alma mater, Temple University, is ready to go to trial again. He has said it was Benadryl, a cold and allergy medicine. "She's entitled to a verdict in this case".

"The prosecution had Cosby's own words that took him up to the very precipice of criminality, yet the defense had the ongoing contacts between the victim and the defendant that would certainly give a jury at least some reason to think carefully about he situation", he said.

McMonagle objected in court to the panel's repeated requests to review testimony, saying it suggested some jurors were trying to coerce other jurors in an attempt to bring an end to the deadlock.

"It can never be clearer that if you speak up, you could be chilling the justice system in the future if jurors are needed in this case", O'Neill told them.

"There's a misperception that there's a time limit", he said.

Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele speaks to the media after Bill Cosby's sexual assault trial was declared a mistrial due to a deadlocked jury in Norristown, Pa. on Saturday.

Still, Cosby's team believes the case is bunk, and retrying it would be unfair to the celebrity due to his failing health.

"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 U.S. media.
