On Saturday morning, Bill Cosby’s ongoing trial came to an end with the jury deadlocked on a decision. With the jury remaining undecided; the trial then turned into a mistrial in which it was dismissed by the court. Cosby remains a free man.
The high-profile case accusing Bill Cosby of aggravated indecent assault ended in a mistrial Saturday after a Pennsylvania jury was unable to come to a unanimous decision. The outcome leaves one of America’s most recognized entertainers as well as his accusers without vindication, but prosecutors immediately announced they will retry the case. About an hour into the sixth day of deliberations, Judge Steven O’Neill declared that the jury of seven men and five women were hopelessly deadlocked in a legal battle closely watched by the public as well as dozens of women who have accused Cosby of similar misconduct in the past.
