Jury questions posed during Bill Cosby's sex assault trial

If Cosby had been found guilty of the assault, he would have faced a maximum of ten years in prison for each count of assault for a total of thirty years. The jury deliberated over five days and declared they were deadlocked on all three counts against the entertainer. After six days of deliberation, the jury announced that it had reached a dead-block in the case against the famous comedian accused of sexually assaulting two women.

"From the moment she revealed what had happened to her, Andrea sought to have this matter addressed in the criminal justice system", the statement continued in part.

"How do I describe the district attorney?"

Cosby, 79, is accused of drugging and molesting a Temple University employee in 2004 at his home near Philadelphia.

Charges were filed in December 2015 after a number of women came forward to accuse Cosby of sexual assault, and testimony emerged in which Cosby said he got quaaludes (methaqualone) in the 1970s for women he wanted to have sex with.

Cosby remains free on bail.

"Imagine it's you being asked to defend age-old accusations - what do you do to defend that?"

This story has been corrected to show that an associate of Andrew Wyatt, Bill Cosby's spokesman, read Camille Cosby's statement, not Wyatt himself. Witnesses have died. We have run into walls trying to get records.

If he had been convicted, prosecutors say Cosby would have had to register as a sex offender and face an assessment to determine whether he was a sexually violent predator.

Cosby's attorneys maintained throughout the trial that the actor's relationship with Constand was consensual.

He added: "I know the side that I'm on and the side that I'm hoping for". This was hard for me, and I don't know how he could sit in that room and endure what he did.

I mean, she was on the stand for more than seven hours and endured extremely excruciating cross-examination.

He said: "We will evaluate and review our case". He only raised an arm as a sign of victory. And they're both probably going to take another whack at this. In a moment, we'll hear about reaction to the acquittal of a Minnesota police officer in the shooting death of a man whose girlfriend captured the immediate aftermath and streamed it on Facebook Live.

Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele later said he would immediately retry the case.

Camille Cosby, who attended one day of the trial last week, also criticized the media as "greedily selling sensationalism at the expense of a human life".

Cosby showed up in court supported by actress Keshia Knight Pulliam, who played his daughter Rudy on his well-known sitcom "The Cosby Show".

"If he wants me to go to battle for him again, I will".
