Cosby prosecutor undeterred by mistrial, vows to try again

"We will evaluate and review our case".

The waiting room which he was sent to with associates and lawyers during breaks became his "dressing room", they said, and visitors were announced as if stopping by for an autograph on the set of a hit show. He also confirmed he had slept with Constand. "If I am called upon to do my civic duty, I will do it", she said. "We will press forward to try to get that done, to get justice done". It's expected that both sides will be looking for jurors who are unbiased and, no matter what they know of the case or Cosby, that they'll be able to judge based on the evidence presented in the courtroom.

O'Neill, an intense and folksy jurist who often strolled the hallways during six days of jury deliberations loudly whistling the theme from the television show "The Leftovers", seemed to side with the prosecution by allowing deliberations to drag on for 52 hours.

"We can not come to a unanimous consensus on any of the charges", the note read.

"The key to retrying a case is to do it differently the second time, because the defense expects you to do it the same way", said Constand's lawyer, Dolores Troiani.

After the verdict, Cosby by sat alone - off to the side and all but overlooked - clutching his cane to his chest and staring silently into the distance.

Constand is on board for the retrial.

The judge, meanwhile, assured the panel members - whose identities remain sealed by court order - that he appreciated their efforts throughout the two-week trial. Celebs took to twitter when they heard the verdict.

"It's too early to celebrate, Cosby". And, then he sexually assaulted Constand while she was not in her senses, she told police.

The verdict came five days after spirited closing arguments in which Cosby was alternately portrayed as a man so intent on having sex with Constand that he used drugs to render her incapacitated, and as a man who had been framed by Constand and others in hopes of reaping monetary settlements in civil suits.

In late 2014, dozens of women went public with accusations that Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted them over the course of his lengthy comedic career and in July 2015, a judge unsealed Cosby's deposition in that 2006 civil lawsuit.

"This was basically just practicing to get the ball in the basket", Allison says she told Constand, a former star high school, college and Italian professional league basketball player. "Cosby's fame could have worked for or against him", said Gomez, depending on if jurors felt deceived or enamored. Afterward the women, who have bonded in the past 2 ½ years since the scandal broke and grew even closer during the trial, were upbeat. Later in January 2004, Cosby allegedly assaulted her.
