Bill Cosby Sexual Assault Trial Ends in Mistrial
Bill Cosby‘s trial on sexual assault charges ended without a verdict Saturday after jurors failed to reach a unanimous decision in a case that helped destroy the 79-year-old comedian’s image as “America’s Dad.”
“After 52 hours of deliberation–probably one of the most courageous acts I’ve ever seen — I’m compelled to grant a mistrial,” Judge Steven O’Neill said.
Jurors deliberated more than 52 hours over six days before telling a judge they couldn’t agree on whetherThe Cosby Show star drugged and molested Temple University employee Andrea Constand at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004. The judge then declared a mistrial.
