Bill Cosby trial ends in mistrial on 6th day of deliberations

Cosby, who gave the deposition as part of Constand's lawsuit against him, said he got seven prescriptions for the powerful sedative in the 1970s for the objective of giving them to women with whom he wanted to have sex.

Bill Cosby raises his hand as he exits the Montgomery County Courthouse after a mistrial was declared in Norristown, Pa., Saturday, June 17, 2017.

The defense side in Bill Cosby's sexual assault trial is declaring victory and going on the attack after jurors deadlocked and the judge declared a mistrial.

"It's way to early to celebrate Mr. Cosby because round two is coming and justice may be right around the corner". "It's back. It has been restored", he said.

The district attorney at the time declined to press charges, citing insufficient evidence. Overtly and arrogantly collaborating with the district attorney.

He remains free on bail pending the new trial.

Cosby had previously admitted to having an affair, McMonagle said, but that was not what he had been on trial for.

Even as his attorney demanded a mistrial, Cosby himself thanked jurors for "their long days" and "their honest work, individually".

Constand told jurors Cosby gave her pills that made her woozy and then penetrated her with his fingers as she lay paralyzed on a couch, unable to tell him to stop. They must come to a unanimous decision to convict or acquit. On Saturday, they came back and told him they were hopelessly deadlocked.

Prosecutors had sought to have 13 other accusers testify in Constand's case, but the judge allowed only one, finding that more would unfairly prejudice the jury.

Close to 60 other women have also come forward with claims they were drugged and/or raped by Cosby, and some have pending civil suits against him.

Actor and comedian Bill Cosby gives a thumbs-up to supporters as he leaves court after deliberations in his sexual assault trial at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pennsylvania, U.S., June 16, 2017. Cosby's lawyer says he and Constand were lovers sharing a consensual sexual encounter.

"We're talking about all the man's tomorrows", said McMonagle, urging acquittal of an icon in the twilight of life.

Cosby was the first black actor to star in a network show, I Spy, in the 1960s and created The Cosby Show two decades later.

In its final statements, the prosecution repeatedly referred to a deposition in a 2005 civil case filed by Constand, in which Cosby testified that he had touched Constand beneath her clothes after giving her pills. He has said it was Benadryl, a cold and allergy medicine.

Constand accuses the 79-year-old entertainer of drugging and molesting her at his Philadelphia-area home in 2004.

Jurors also asked for, and received, a definition of reasonable doubt, the threshold that prosecutors must cross to win a conviction, and reviewed testimony from Constand and her mother about phone conversations they had with Cosby after the encounter.

The statement also sharply criticised the judge and prosecutors for pursuing the case.

Constand, then 31, met the married Cosby 15 years ago through her job as an administrator with the women's basketball team at Temple University in Philadelphia, where Cosby was a trustee and the school's most renowned alumnus.
