Celebrities react to Bill Cosby mistrial

When the trial started June 5, the jury of seven men and five women were bussed in from Allegheny County near Pittsburgh and have since been sequestered in a hotel.

Bill Cosby's sexual assault case has been declared a mistrial after jurors failed to reach a verdict on the sixth day of deliberations.

O'Neill indicated he would try to schedule a new trial within 120 days.

Social media erupted Saturday morning when news broke that Bill Cosby's sexual assault trial had ended in a hung jury.

Smolla said the outcome of any civil case would depend on how jurors behave in terms of how seriously they take the case, how they relate to one another and how they deal with holdout jurors. The jury got the case Monday, and first declared itself deadlocked Thursday on the three counts of aggravated indecent assault.

Gloria Allred, attorney representing 33 of the more than 60 women who have publicly accused Cosby of assaulting them over 40 years, also spoke to the media on Saturday.

O'Neill, an intense and folksy jurist who often strolled the hallways during six days of jury deliberations loudly whistling the theme from the television show "The Leftovers", seemed to side with the prosecution by allowing deliberations to drag on for 52 hours.

Azhar Ali also scored 59 off 71 and after his departure Babar Azam also put some notable contribution in the board with 46 off 52. Once Amir had devoured the three in a superb opening spell of six overs, it virtually ended the match as a contest.

But he maintained he only gave accuser Andrea Constand three half-tablets of Benadryl to help her relax.

Cosby has suggested he hopes to resume his career and his role as a public moralist. The charges against Cosby remain in place.

Dozens of women have come forward to say he drugged and assaulted them, but this was the only case to result in criminal charges.

District Attorney Kevin Steele said Friday he would push for a retrial as soon as possible, reassess the case and possibly make some "tweaks".

'Steele wants me badly; he ran on getting me but he doesn't have a case, ' he is claimed to have said at one stage.

"Imagine it's you being asked to defend age-old accusations - how do you defend that?" he said.

Villanova University law school Professor Emeritus Anne Poulin says the mistrial tells us that some of the jurors were convinced beyond a reasonable doubt of Cosby's guilt.

In addition to proving that Cosby assaulted them, Smolla said, they would have to establish that he said something about them beyond denying the allegations, such as calling them known liars or promiscuous.

Chloe Goins, a former model who claims Cosby drugged and sexually abused her at the Playboy Mansion in 2008, is also suing the comedian on sexual battery and other claims.

Cosby has said any sexual activity was consensual.

Andrea later told police that he had drugged her in such a way that she could not keep her eyes open. "As a very special friend once stated, 'Truth can be subdued, but not destroyed.'" Camille Cosby also thanked her husband's lawyers, other staff members, family and friends for their support.

'This is what happens - juries are stuck when a prosecutor seeks to put someone in prison for things that are simply not presented in the courtroom, ' said Angela Agrusa, one of Cosby's lawyers.

"Do you agree there is a hopeless deadlock that can not be resolved by further deliberations?" he asked each juror.
