The Jury At Bill Cosby's Trial Can't Come To A Decision!

20 June, 2017, 11:51 | Author: Benny Bass

He says Cosby was cute and clever with the children and talked to them in Italian.

Johnson testified that Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted her in 1996, while Cosby acknowledged in depositions that he gave young women sedatives in the 1970s. It shows her shooting a mini-basketball into a hoop to the tune of "Sweet Georgia Brown", the theme song of the Harlem Globetrotters. It ended with: "ALWAYS FOLLOW THROUGH".

The jurors on Wednesday requested part of Constand's testimony, particularly about the night of the alleged assault, as well as testimony from a law enforcement officer who had interviewed Cosby about the incident.

She also asked Cosby's representatives for free tickets for her and her family to see Cosby's stand-up show in Toronto in August, half a year after the alleged assault.

"I may have been unclear in where we are right now", O'Neill said.

Each jury deadlock announcement is met with a defense motion for a mistrial.

There were fans and protestors outside of the courthouse, with some of them protesting the news and others hugging one another in happiness. But the atmosphere remains calm, with accusers and supporters even holding hands.

"He is not Cliff Huxtable", she said, referencing Cosby's dad role on his acclaimed 1980s sitcom "The Cosby Show". "I don't hear her say anything".

What are you thoughts on the jury deadlocked in the trial against Bill Cosby?

A SMILE broke out over Bill Cosby's face when jurors told a judge they were deadlocked in the disgraced funnyman's sex assault trial overnight.

But he says he'll let the jurors work as long as they want.

Mason said Constand didn't recall much after that and said that Cosby lied next to her and assaulted her.

If convicted, Cosby, 79, could spend the rest of his life in prison: He has been charged with three second-degree felony counts, and each carries a minimum sentence of five years in prison.

The jury reported to Judge Steven O'Neill that after more than 30 hours of deliberations, they could not reach a unanimous verdict regarding whether or not Cosby sexually assaulted Andrea Constand.

O'Neill sent them back to the jury room to keep talking. Jurors need to reach a unanimous agreement on some or all of the counts in order to reach a verdict and convict Cosby or find him innocent. They have spent days asking to have testimony read back, including Constand's trial testimony as well as the first report she made to police in 2005. The Constand case is the only known instance in which the statute of limitations had not expired. The unsealed deposition was central to Cosby's ongoing criminal case.

Later in the day, he called on the judge to declare a mistrial. Testifying for more than seven hours last week, Constand denied there was any romance between them and told jurors she had rebuffed his advances before the assault.

The trial outside Philadelphia involves Cosby's sexual encounter with a woman at his home in 2004.

Ms Constand and her mother were in court for the announcement from the jurors. He says he gave her an over-over-the-counter cold and allergy medicine to help her relax and that the encounter was consensual.

"My gut feeling is that they have at least one or two jurors hung", said Cohen, who past year represented former-Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski in a battery case. The judge told them to try again for a verdict.

The panel got the case on Monday.

Jurors who have appeared stressed and even angry seemed more upbeat than on previous nights, despite enduring another marathon session in a case that has already helped torpedo Cosby's career and nice-guy reputation.
