Judge declares mistrial in Bill Cosby sexual assault case

NORRISTOWN, Pa. — A mistrial has been declared Saturday in Bill Cosby‘s sex assault trial after jurors failed to reach a verdict following five days of deliberations.

The jury of seven men and five women deadlocked after about 52 hours of deliberations that began June 12. It first announced they were deadlocked Thursday.

“This jury is hopelessly deadlocked,” Judge Steven O’Neill said after questioning each juror in turn about the impasse, adding, “This is not a victory for anyone.”
