Bill Cosby's sexual assault case ends in mistrial

What will happen next?

In December 2015 - five months after 35 other women offered similar accounts of sexual assault at the hands of Bill Cosby in a NY cover story - Montgomery County prosecutors charged him with three felony counts of aggravated indecent assault.

In addition to proving that Cosby assaulted them, Smolla said, they would have to establish that he said something about them beyond denying the allegations, such as calling them known liars or promiscuous. She eventually became operations manager for the women's basketball team at Temple University. She claims that in 2004 she visited him alone at his home, and he gave her pills, which left her paralyzed.

Cosby, 79, was charged with three counts of aggravated indecent assault for drugging and sexually assaulting Constand, 44, without her consent.

McMonagle said he respected Cosby's efforts to keep his family out of the courtroom spotlight. She countered that it was because she had to for her job. However, his reputation had been tarnished over the years as nearly 60 women have come forward and accused him of sexual assault.

The FBI recovered a cellphone, computer and camera from Hodgkinson's van and was examining them for evidence, the statement said. After Scalise was shot in the hip, the bullet traveled through his pelvis, fractured bones and injured internal organs.

First and most important, Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele has vowed to retry Cosby on the criminal charge that he sexually assaulted Andrea Constand.

The Jury deliberated for more than 52 hours over six days before informing Judge O'Neill they were hopelessly deadlocked.

"The key to retrying a case is to do it differently the second time, because the defense expects you to do it the same way", said Troiani, whose client is on board for a retrial.

Media organizations including The Associated Press are seeking the jurors' identities. The outcome leaves one... He says the hung jury surprised him. It was as if we all made a decision to undergo a massive case of cultural amnesia at once, shrugging off the case with little public outcry.

We had reached a moment where those who allege sexual assault are believed more readily, particularly in the court of public opinion.

McCloskey added he would have voted to convict.

Bruce Castor, the ex-prosecutor who passed on Constand's case in 2005, said Saturday that he was disappointed but not surprised in Steele's failure to win a conviction. Mr. McMonagle for his passionate and powerful articulations of truth; Ms. Agrusa for her thorough research to bolster counsel McMonagle; to Mr. Andrew Wyatt for his unequivocal skills in public relations; to our team, who worked diligently and intelligently; to our staffs for their continuous commitment to our family and me. "But unfortunately being an alternate, I didn't have a decision in that matter".

Bill Cosby listens to his wife Camille's statement being read aloud by Ebonee M. Benson outside the Montgomery County Courthouse after a mistrial in his sexual assault case in Norristown, Pa., Saturday, June 17, 2017. There is also the prospect of a fresh criminal trial in his home state of Pennsylvania. The judge said he would try to schedule a new trial within 120 days. She also said the judge was "overtly and arrogantly collaborating with the [district attorney]". Cosby says the encounter was consensual.

"I see people using their family as shields in criminal cases". Oliver appeared aghast at Cosby's post-trial behavior, saying "what are you doing?" and noting that "shouting your character's catch phrase while on trial is a weird choice".
