Constand's claim was the only one to lead to criminal charges, with numerous others dating too far back to allow for prosecution.
"I have seen it many times in cases all over the country, and sometimes a second jury will render a different outcome than the first jury". The trial also included testimony from another woman, Kelly Johnson, who claims that Cosby sexually assaulted her in 1996 when he allegedly gave her a pill in a Los Angeles hotel room when she was employed by a talent agency.
In it, the former entertainer's wife slammed the district attorney as "heinously and exploitively ambitious" and Judge O'Neill as "overtly and arrogantly collaborating with the District Attorney".
Allred said she hopes the court will allow other "prior bad act witnesses" to testify at the next trial. The entire time, since Constand first talked to police until this month's trial, Cosby's legal team has insisted there was no case.
Cosby has said any sexual activity was consensual.
Under questioning from her lawyer, Cosby acknowledged that he had obtained several prescriptions for quaaludes in the 1970s for the goal of offering the powerful sedative to women he wanted to have sex with. She also denied that the two had had a romantic relationship prior to that encounter.
"Why did the [accusers] wait so long?" asked one woman, who held a manila folder with "We 3 Bill Cosby" scrawled in Sharpie.
London fire: 58 presumed dead, say police
Downing Street had previously announced £5 million would be spent on clothing, aid and food for victims of the blaze. She has promised to set up a public inquiry and pledged 5 million pounds ($6.40 million) to help the victims.
The jury of seven men and five women had been deliberating since Monday, when attorneys for both sides gave their closing arguments. But it was his reputation as a public moralist who urged young people to pull up their saggy trousers and start acting responsibly that prompted a federal judge to unseal portions of an explosive deposition he gave more than a decade ago as part of Constand's civil lawsuit against him.
"I personally can not thank Andrea Constand enough", she said.
In short, Cosby's name was synonymous with community leadership, black success, sitcom fatherhood, bold sweaters and Jell-O ads.
One of Bill Cosby's accuser's reacts at the Montgomery County Courthouse after a mistrial the Bill Cosby sexual assault case in Norristown, Pa., Saturday, June 17, 2017. This particular case was for his alleged sexual assault against Andrea Constand.
But the trial has irrevocably damaged his legacy as a towering figure in USA popular culture, once adored for his seminal role as a lovable father and obstetrician on hit TV series The Cosby Show.
Iconic comedian Bill Cosby appeared in court once again today, regarding sexual assault allegations.
O'Neill reminded Cosby, 79, that the three counts of aggravated indecent assault remain intact and that he will remain free on 10 percent of $1 million bail, pending the retrial, which some hinted may occur within 120 days. The judge instructed them to keep working, but despite marathon 12-hour sessions, the jury said on Saturday it was at an impasse.
