After 52-hours of deliberation, the judge in the sexual assault case of Bill Cosby has declared a mistrial.
Judge Steven O’Neill declared the mistrial Saturday morning after the jury of seven men and five women failed to reach a unanimous consensus.
If convicted, 79-year-old Cosby could have spent the rest of his life in prison for the alleged drugging and molestation of Andrea Constand, a former Temple University employee.
As you probably know, dozens of women have come forward over the last few years to claim Bill has sexually assaulted them. For most of the cases, the statute of limitations had expired by the time they shared their stories. Andrea Constand’s case was the exception.
District Attorney Kevin Steele says he will retry the case.
