Bill Cosby Court Case Ends In Mistrial

Several months after Bill Cosby was dragged to court on sexual assault charges, a US judge has declared a mistrial on Saturday, June 17, with jurors reporting a deadlock over charges that the comedian drugged and violated a woman in 2004.

This comes after the jury deadlocked following more than 50 hours of deliberations over whether to convict the embattled TV star.

The move sees the 79-year-old comic act who earlier faced spending the rest of his life in prison, walks free.

Montgomery County district attorney Kevin Steele immediately said prosecutors would seek to retry Cosby on the same charges. They will have 120 days to do so.

Cosby was being tried on three counts of aggravated indecent assault against 44-year-old Andrea Constand at his Philadelphia mansion in January 2004.
