Bill Cosby Sexual Assault case declared a Mistrial
The Bill Cosby sexual assault case has finally come to a close. This morning a federal judge declared a mistrial due to the jury being hopelessly deadlocked.A Pennsylvania jury was unable to come to a uanimous decision.
About an hour into the sixth day of deliberations, Judge Steven O'Neill declared the jury of seven men and five woman 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. He faced three charges of aggravated indecent assault, CNN reports.
What's next for the comedian? His career is in shambles, and the Prosecution has already stated that they plan on retrying the case. Cosby legal team and wife released statements describing their disgust for the District Attorney's office. Cosby only had one statement to make while leaving the courthouse:
"I just want to wish all of the fathers a Happy Father's Day, and I want to thank all of the jury individually for their long days and honest work individually."
He also thanked all of the fans and those who've supported him during this case. I don't think that this is over just yet, we will just have to see what's next for the 79-year old comedian and this case.
