Cosby Case Ends in Hung Jury, Mistrial

A Pennsylvania judge declared a mistrial Saturday in the sexual assault case against Bill Cosby after a jury failed to reach a verdict.

Judge Steven O’Neill made the decision after days of the jurors saying they were hopelessly deadlocked. O’Neill had continually returned them to deliberate further, but the five-man, seven-woman panel couldn’t come to a unanimous verdict after more than 50 hours.

Cosby was charged with three counts of aggravated indecent assault for allegedly drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his Philadelphia home in 2004. He faced up to 10 years in prison on each count.

Prosecutors announced they would retry the 79-year-old entertainer, CNN reported.
