Cosby team triumphant, but sex crime retrial, lawsuits loom

Actor and comedian Bill Cosby stands as his publicist Andrew Wyatt addresses the media after a judge declared a mistrial in Cosby'

Saturday afternoon, Judge Steven T. O'Neill declared a mistrial following six days of deliberations, which stalled as the jurors - who first reported a deadlock four days into their discussions - repeatedly asked the court for clarifications.

McMonagle said Camille Cosby's words will not have any effect on the case, should there be a retrial.

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

Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele immediately came out and stated that he will retry Mr. Cosby on the criminal charge that he sexually assaulted Andrea Constand. Spokeswoman for Cosby's wife, Camille said.

Constand's 2004 encounter with Cosby at his suburban Philadelphia estate was the only one to result in criminal charges. His deposition testimony in her civil suit revealed that Cosby, someone who had a bestselling book about fatherhood, had procured Quaaludes for the sole reason of having sex with women who were not his wife.

Troiani acknowledged the difficulty of the case, given the passage of time and the impact of the alleged drugging on Constand's ability to recall details.

It's a depressing question to ask on a Father's Day weekend: What does it mean that a superstar comic and philanthropist once "America's Dad" just saw his prosecution on sexual assault charges end in a mistrial? The judge brought Cosby into court to make sure he'd approved of the mistrial requests, asking the comedian if he knew that a mistrial would mean he could be prosecuted again.

The juror names remain shielded from the public under a protective order that several news outlets have challenged.

Linda Fairstein, former head of the sex crimes unit with the Manhattan District Attorney's Office, agreed that retrials are usually better for the defense. "Overtly arrogant, collaborating with the district attorney", said her statement, which was tweeted by her husband and read by an associate of the public relations firm representing Cosby. After a preliminary hearing, a judge decided there was enough evidence for him to stand trial. "It has been restored".

In a formal declaration announced mutually with her attorneys on Saturday, Constand expressed gratitude towards all the prosecutors and members of law enforcement who made a decision to take an interest in her case. He found success with his "Fat Albert" animated TV show and starred in commercials for Jell-O pudding.

Cosby has suggested he hopes to resume his career and his role as a public moralist.

Bill Cosby's lawyer is speaking out following Saturday's mistrial. "Bill Cosby's rape case", said Armour, who teaches at the University of South California.

But the jurors clearly struggled with their verdict, telling the judge on Day 4 they were at impasse. Judge O'Neill instructed them to keep working toward a unanimous decision.

The judge sought to comfort the jurors, at least one of whom fought back tears, calling their epic deliberation "one of the more courageous acts, one of the more selfless acts that I've seen in the justice system". 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 freaky choice".

He reminded prosecutors and the defense that "a mistrial is neither vindication nor victory for anybody".
