After 53 hours of tough deliberation, the jury in the Bill Cosby case ends in a mistrial. The comedian faced three charges of aggravated indecent assault. Prosecutors have confirmed that they will retry the case.
“We’ve been at this now for 10 days (including testimony). There has been nothing but a supreme effort on your part,” Judge Steven O’Neill told the jury on Friday, according to CNN
Cosby’s spokesperson read a statement from his wife, Camille, who expressed her disappointment on how the case was handled.
“How do I describe the District Attorney? Heinously and exploitively ambitious. How do I describe the judge? Overtly and arrogantly collaborating with the District Attorney. How do I describe the counsels for the accusers? Totally unethical. How do I describe many, but not all, general media? Blatantly vicious entities that continually disseminated intentional omissions of truths for the primary purpose of greedily selling sensationalism at the expense of a human life.”
