The mistrial was a blow to the dozens of women who have said they were sexually assaulted by Cosby.

A judge declared a mistrial in Bill Cosby's sexual assault case after the jury said it's hopelessly deadlocked.

Accuser Andrea Constand departs the courtroom during the fifth day of deliberations in Bill Cosby's sexual assault trial at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pennsylvania, U.S., June 16, 2017.

Three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault, each covering a different aspect of the alleged crime. Cosby, however, has maintained he only gave Constand Benadryl, that their sexual relations were consensual, and that Constand never said "no".

Jurors deliberated for more than 52 hours over six days before telling a judge they could not agree on whether The Cosby Show star drugged and molested Temple University employee Andrea Constand at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004.

Cosby's wife, Camille, issued a statement, which was read by an assistant of Cosby's publicist, in which she criticized prosecutors for taking the case to court.

Senate passes Russian Federation sanctions bill, pushing back against Trump
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson anxious about a potential amendment closing off channels to the country, but Tennessee Sen. The larger bill is expected to pass the Senate by the end of the week, then be passed by the House and signed by Trump.

He is free on $1.31 million bail.

She said she hopes the case is a wakeup call for women in assault cases, saying they need to get to a hospital immediately to "get that DNA saved".

NORRISTOWN "It's a blessing!" a Bill Cosby supporter shouted as the entertainer emerged from the Montgomery County Courthouse on Saturday after a mistrial was declared at his sexual assault trial.

"The vitriol in it to me was over the top considering that (more than 50) accusers came forward and Cosby was not found innocent".

The charges against Cosby remain in place.

Prosecutors get four months to decide whether they want to retry Cosby or drop the charges.

Thomas burns up Erin Hills with record score
Reavie birdied five of his first seven holes, and eight in all Friday, to surge back into contention. Open. "And he was like, 'Oh, fine, I'm good.' He's like, 'Are you all right?' I said, 'Yeah'".

But Victoria Valentino, a former Playboy model who has accused Cosby of drugging and raping her decades ago, had a message for him: "You're not off the hook, buddy".

Jurors also asked for, and received, a definition of reasonable doubt, the threshold that prosecutors must cross to win a conviction, and reviewed testimony from Constand and her mother about phone conversations they had with Cosby after the encounter. The American public often expects victims of sexual assault to behave in ways that are frequently different from how they actually behave.

"She has shown such courage through this, and we are in awe of what she has done", Steele said. About 60 women have made similar allegations, although only Constand's is recent enough to sustain a criminal prosecution. "Mistrial is the justice system at work". Let's say, instead of going straight to a re-trial, prosecutors attempt to appeal the judge's decision not to allow more Cosby rape accusers to testify.

Even with the lower standard of evidence in civil cases, Rodney Smolla, dean of Delaware Law School, said that plaintiffs bringing defamation claims faced a significant legal challenge.

But early reaction to the Cosby mistrial from the celebrity Twitterverse was decidedly muted. Judge Steven O'Neill instructed them to keep working toward a unanimous decision.
