Bill Cosby case: Judge declares mistrial after jury deadlock

The seven men and five women were unable to reach a unanimous decision after some 53 hours of deliberations in Norristown, Pennsylvania.

Why did a mistrial happen?

The testimony is relevant because Cosby is charged with giving pills to Constand, former director of operations for the Temple women's basketball team, to incapacitate her before their sexual encounter. She did not report it until a year later. This particular case was for his alleged sexual assault against Andrea Constand.

TAYLOR: And, certainly, that always favors the prosecution because, you know, the defense has tipped its hand. Camille Cosby, 73, only attended one day of the trial with her husband.

A USA judge has declared a mistrial in the Bill Cosby sex assault case after the jury remained deadlocked for days.

But it wasn't enough.

"It's a challenging case but for numerous accusers they think it's a pretty simple case and that if it we're other than Mr. Cosby maybe there could have been a different result", added Allred. "I AM A THRIVER!" she said in a statement.

Dozens of women have accused Cosby of misconduct, but Andrea Constand's accusation was the only one that led to criminal charges.

Cosby did not testify but his version of the encounter was shown to jurors in the form of a police interview he did in 2005, as well as sworn depositions he gave in 2005 and 2006 during Constand's civil lawsuit. Prosecutors have suggested he might have given her quaaludes.

"We got to try our case", Steele said.

The jury seemed to focus on "reasonable doubt".

'How do I describe the judge?

"There's a lot at stake here with the fact that so many women have filed complaints against him", said Fishbein. "He leaves it presumed innocent", said defense attorney Brian McMonagle. The trial was over in the courtroom in six days.

Steele believes his witness and stands by her.

"She's entitled to a verdict in this case."

Best known for starring in and producing the highly successful 1980s television sitcom "The Cosby Show", the television-actor could be sentenced to up to 10 years in prison on each count if convicted. The jury in the Philando Castile case took 27 hours. "They left no stone unturned". And so my hat's off for them for bringing the strongest case that they possibly could. He elaborated later at a press conference, saying Constand "deserves a verdict" on the charges.

"Our plan is to move this case forward as soon as possible", Steele said. But it doesn't affect the evidence. "I feel bad for all of you, I really do".

Spokesman Andrew Wyatt said Saturday that "Cosby's power is back".

According to Mediaite, Allred made it clear that the case is far from over. I also want to thank the supporters who have been here. "And if the jury comes for the other side of the so forth and so on, it's still public opinion. Because he drugged her to do this", the prosecutor told jurors. "Did they miss something in jury selection that should have tipped them off?"

"I want to get back to the laughter and enjoyment of things that I've written and things that I perform on stage", he told CNN host Michael Smerconish last month on his radio program on the SiriusXM POTUS channel.
