Bill Cosby's Case Ends in Mistrial
Bill Cosby, one of America's most iconic family television figures, rocked the nation when he was charged with sexual assault. He was taken to trial in Pennsylvania, where Variety reports the case ended today in a mistrial.
After 52 hours of deliberation, the jury returned saying they were "deadlocked on all counts."
District Attorney Kevin Steele says he fully intends to continue to try the case against Cosby. "We will evaluate and review our case. We will take a hard look at everything involved and then we will retry it."
Allegations against Cosby for sexual misconduct were first revealed by comedian HANNIBAL Buress, who called the 'Cosby Show' star a rapist during a routine. Since that time several other women have come forward to reveal that they too were victims of Mr. Cosby, including former model Janice Dickinson, who shared with ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT that she was drugged and raped by Cosby more than 30 years ago.
