Last day of the Bill Cosby sex assault trial

Last day of the Bill Cosby sex assault trial

Bill Cosby arrived Monday for his sexual assault trial with his wife, Camille, at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pa.

It was a stunning development - and a momentary victory - for the 79-year-old pioneering black entertainer who had risked spending the rest of his life in prison if convicted of assaulting Andrea Constand at his Philadelphia mansion.

A statement from Cosby's wife, Camille, that was delivered by a spokeswoman called the presiding judge and district attorney "totally unethical". He remains free on bail until the next trial is scheduled.

Constand was one of dozens of women who accused Cosby of sexual assault over a decades-long time period, but hers has been the only one to result in a criminal trial.

The sequestered seven-man, five-woman panel spent 52 hours deliberating, working late into the night and on Saturday, longer than the six business days devoted to testimony and legal arguments.

Mrs. Cosby shared her statement through her husband's Twitter account mere moments after Judge Steven O'Neill confirmed the deadlock Saturday morning.

Others came to Cosby's defense, saying he's innocent until proven guilty.

O'Neill said after the mistrial ruling that he would attempt to set the case to continue within the next 100 days.

Attorney Gloria Allred, who represents Johnson and many other accusers, said she hoped more can testify at the next trial.

Cosby, who did not take the stand during his trial, did not comment outside court.

Constand's case was opened more than a decade after the initial offense, which she reported in 2005, by a new district attorney.

It also sharply criticized the judge and prosecutors for pursuing the case.

"It's too early to celebrate, Mr. Cosby", Allred said at a press conference after the mistrial announcement. "Because he drugged her to do this", the prosecutor told jurors. On Friday, they asked the judge for the definition the words.

McMonagle, in his closing argument, pointed out that Constand telephoned Cosby dozens of times after the alleged assault.

Bill Cosby's celebrity peers aren't shying away from sounding off about his mistrial, declared Saturday by a Pennsylvania judge.

Cosby himself did not address the small crowd - and his manner was far from the jokey one he had had interacting with supporters at the courthouse over the previous two weeks, when he would often repeat the "Hey, hey, hey" greeting that had become a catchphrase in his '70s animated series "Fat Albert". However, the trial only focused on allegations brought forth by Andrea Constand, former director of operations for Temple University's women's basketball team. The charges against Cosby remain in place. "She's entitled to a verdict in this case". "I am grateful to any of the jurors who tenaciously fought to review the evidence; which is the rightful way to make a sound decision....ultimately, that is a manifestation of justice, based on facts, not lies", she stated.

Cosby's lawyer says he and Constand were lovers sharing a consensual sexual encounter.

The trial has irrevocably damaged the legacy of Cosby, once a towering figure in U.S. popular culture best known for his seminal role as a lovable father and obstetrician on hit 1984-92 TV series "The Cosby Show".
