Cosby lawyers fighting civil suits by 10 women

They nearly surely will meet again in a court of law.

Cosby, who has been described as legally blind, has been supported by longtime friends and a few actors, including Keisha Knight Pulliam, who played Cosby's TV daughter, Rudy, on "The Cosby Show", which remained popular as the show continued to be shown as reruns long after the TV series ended in 1992. Cosby is accused of drugging and sexually assaulting Constand at his home outside Philadelphia in 2004.

Prosecutors pledged to put Cosby on trial for a second time, saying Constand was "entitled to a verdict".

Gianna Constand, left and her daughter Andrea Constand walk from the courtroom during jury deliberations in Bill Cosby's sexual assault trial at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pa., Tuesday, June 13, 2017. The judge said he would try to schedule a new trial within 120 days. The retrial is expected to bear many similarities to the first trial, but there might be key differences that could affect the outcome. Defense attorneys had pushed to select a jury from another county because of intense pretrial publicity in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, where District Attorney Kevin Steele, during his 2015 election campaign, had been critical of one of his predecessors for not prosecuting Cosby.

"During some of the most painfully, aggravating parts of our trial, particularly jury deliberations it was he who was keeping us going", he said. McAndrews suggested that a jury pool could be drawn from the Harrisburg area of Dauphin County, or from the Scranton area of Lackawanna County.

After the verdict, Cosby by sat alone - off to the side and all but overlooked - clutching his cane to his chest and staring silently into the distance. "Overtly arrogant, collaborating with the district attorney", said her statement, which was tweeted by her husband and read by an associate of the public relations firm representing Cosby.

"From the moment she revealed what had happened to her, Andrea sought to have this matter addressed in the criminal justice system", Troiani said. Steele said he and prosecutors Kristen Feden and M. Stewart Ryan "will evaluate and review" the case.

Former federal prosecutor David Weinstein said Cosby's celebrity status nearly certainly played a role in the jury's deliberations, perhaps to convince "two or three jurors that it's impossible to convict Dr. Huxtable, to convict Fat Albert. that he couldn't have done this frightful thing". "They want the element of surprise".

The 22-year-old University of Virginia student was medically evacuated from North Korea and arrived in Cincinnati late Tuesday. His father, Mr Fred Warmbier said at the news conference his son was "brutalised and terrorised" by the North Korean regime.

The entertainer, who had an endearing reputation as "America's Dad" from his years as the lovable Cliff Huxtable on "The Cosby Show", faces up to ten years in prison on each of the three counts. Prosecutors rejected filing a case against Mr Cosby based on Ms Goins's allegations, which they said investigators could not corroborate.

O'Neill asked each juror if the impasse was impossible to resolve.

The mistrial was a blow to the dozens of women who have said they were sexually assaulted by Cosby, including several who attended the trial wearing buttons that read "We Stand in Truth". Celebs took to twitter when they heard the verdict. They withdrew a request for related phone records. Judge Steven O'Neill told the jury he could not provide additional information. The jury is made up of four white women, six white men, one black woman and one black man.

Cosby's wife Camille was rarely present throughout the trial.

Bill Cosby's legal team likely has an edge in a retrial. Reluctantly, she said, she took the pills because she trusted him as a friend and mentor, but soon, she felt whoozy and had blurry vision. "WTF? The cop who we SAW murder Philando Castile gets off and Bill Cosby, who drugged and raped for years, does too".

"This was basically just practicing to get the ball in the basket", Allison says she told Constand, a former star high school, college and Italian professional league basketball player.

On Sunday, Allison went to church back home in NY.
