Gloria Allred to Bill Cosby: "Round 2 is coming"

Bill Cosby gestures as he leaves the Montgomery County Courthouse during his sexual assault trial, Friday, June 16, 2017, in Norristown, Pa. This is what happens when a prosecution seeks to put someone in prison for something they did not do. In the statement, which Bill Cosby later tweeted, she attacked Judge O'Neill, describing him as "overtly arrogant" and accusing him of "collaborating with the district attorney". How do I describe the counsels for the accusers? The jury deliberated for more than 52 hours over six days. He will remain free on bail. He said Constand "is entitled to a verdict in this case and the citizens of Montgomery County, where this crime occurred, are entitled to a verdict in this case".

"I personally can not thank Andrea Constand enough", she said. He says it was consensual. Judge Steve T. O'Neill said he would be scheduling a new trial in the next four months. "In other words, it's too early to celebrate, Mr Cosby".

Moments after the declared mistrial was a text with one simple image - an emoji of two hands pressed together in prayer. The jury was deadlocked and unable to make a unanimous verdict.

Prosecutors said immediately that they would retry the Cosby Show star, and he remains charged with three counts of aggravated indecent assault.

District Attorney Kevin Steele declined to comment when asked about Camille Cosby's statement. "And I want to thank the jury for their long days".


Constand did not appear at the news conference.

The reaction to the mistrial was also swift from supporters of alleged Cosby victim Andrea Constand.

A lawyer representing many of Mr Cosby's accusers, Gloria Allred, said she was hoping the prosecution would try the case again.

The judge then declared a mistrial for the 79-year-old comedian. Cosby has denied all their claims. Only one was allowed to testify in the Constand case. 'Back then their livelihoods, their reputations, everything was on the line because they were helpless to do anything about it because they were smack up against this power'.

The judge told the jury that 'they have worked so hard'.

McMonagle objected in court to the panel's repeated requests to review testimony, saying it suggested some jurors were trying to coerce other jurors in an attempt to bring an end to the deadlock.

Ouch. The jury, made up of five women and seven men, received praise - at least the ones who fought for a not guilty verdict. His attorneys have said throughout that their client is innocent of all accusations.

Jurors got the case on Monday.
