Bill Cosby's Sexual Assault Case Ends in Mistrial
The case which accused Bill of drugging and molesting Andrea Constand in early 2004 was ruled a mistrial by the judge on Saturday, June 17.


A mistrial has been declared in Bill Cosby's sexual assault case against Andrea Constand. The case which accused Bill of drugging and molesting Andrea in early 2004 was ruled a mistrial by the judge on Saturday, June 17.

The decision has spared the former star of "The Bill Cosby Show" from a potential decade behind bars. Judge Steven O'Neill said that the note from jury "indicates that we the jury are deadlocked on all counts."

When the judge made the announcement after almost of week of deliberations in suburban Philadelphia, Bill looked subdued. He remained seated in his courtroom chair and looked down for a bit and said nothing as he emerged from the courtroom.

After the mistrial was announced, the Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele announced they will retry the case.

The decision by Steven to end the legal purgatory could see D.A. Kevin's office seek an entirely new trial before the end of summer. Kevin has four months to decide how he wants to pursue a new trial with a new jury for the current three felony charges of second-degree aggravated indecent assault or new ones.

The alleged assault which sparked the charges allegedly happened in early 2004 after Bill invited Andrea to his home in Elkins Park, Philadelphia to discuss her career plans. At the time, he reportedly gave her drugs and molested her.
