Bill Cosby, the comedian once known as “America’s Dad” for his TV role as paternal Dr. Cliff Huxtable, is declaring victory this Father’s Day after a jury deliberated 52 hours without reaching consensus on charges he drugged and molested a woman in 2004. No one from Cosby’s real or TV families was in court Saturday when the case ended in a mistrial. Instead, Cosby emerged from the courthouse with his publicity team, which read a statement from his wife that accused the judge likely to retry him of arrogance and collusion with prosecutors.
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.” Jurors deliberated more than 52 hours over six days before telling a judge they couldn’t agree on whether “The Cosby Show” star drugged and molested Temple University employee Andrea Constand at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004. The judge then declared a mistrial.
Jurors considering the fate of Bill Cosby at his sexual assault trial asked for a definition of “reasonable doubt” on their fifth day of deliberations Friday, a day after telling the judge they were deadlocked on all charges. The panel also asked to rehear parts of the 79-year-old comedian’s deposition testimony. Cosby gave the deposition more than a decade ago as part of accuser Andrea Constand’s lawsuit against him. He testified then that he had given Constand pills before a sexual encounter at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004.
Jurors in Bill Cosby’s sexual assault trial told a judge Thursday they’re deadlocked on charges the comedian drugged and molested a woman in 2004, but the judge told them to keep trying to reach a unanimous decision. The panel deliberated about 30 hours over four days before telling Judge Steven O’Neill they couldn’t reach a verdict on any of the three counts against the 79-year-old comedian. The judge sent them back to the jury room to keep talking.
