The charges against Bill Cosby and their potential sentences

The charges against Bill Cosby and their potential sentences

When asked about Cosby's statement during a press conference, Montgomery County, PA District Attorney Kevin Steele responded, "I'm not going to talk about Camille Cosby".

Count 1 alleges that Cosby didn't have consent when he penetrated Constand's genitals with his fingers.

More than 50 women have accused Cosby of sexually assaulting them, but the trial has focused on Constand's and another anonymous complainant's testimonies.

Bill Cosby's lawyer repeatedly demanded a mistrial in his sex assault trial as five days of deliberations on the fate of the man once known as America's Dad pushed into Father's Day weekend, but the judge said there was no precedent to shut down the jury's talks.

The judge said he saw no evidence of coercion or trouble in the deliberating room after the jurors reported their impasse on Thursday and he instructed them to keep trying for a verdict. "How do I describe the District Attorney?"

One other accuser, Kelly Johnson, was allowed to testify during the trial as prosecutors sought to establish that Cosby had a pattern of assault.

"My opinion continues to be that Ms. Constand was probably the victim of a sexual assault", said Castor, whom Constand is suing for defamation.

Janice Dickinson, the model and reality TV personality, said in a November 2014 interview that Cosby sexually assaulted her after the two had dinner at Lake Tahoe in 1982.

The jury in his sexual assault case against Andrea Constand deadlocked and the case was declared a mistrial. SMH.

Constand also testified that she was "jolted awake" and felt Cosby's hands groping her body.

Police have not named a suspect or person of interest , but have said they are questioning several people while they gather leads. They found stab wounds in one of the victims but were not able to determine a likely cause of death for the other two women.

"She will absolutely come back again", she said.

Linda Kirkpatrick, one of the women accusing Cosby of sexual assault, told CNN shortly after the mistrial the entire ordeal had forced those accusing the star to relive a awful time in their lives.

Less than 48 hours later, the panel informed the judge that they were still deadlocked on all three counts.

"We can never underestimate the blinding power of celebrity, but justice will come", Allred, who represents other women who have accused Cosby of similar attacks, told CNN's Fredricka Whitfield.

Constand did not speak to reporters, but her attorney, Dolores Troiani, said Constand was a "very spiritual person who believes everything happens for a reason". He said Constand "is entitled to a verdict in this case and the citizens of Montgomery County, where this crime occurred, are entitled to a verdict in this case".

She alleged that Cosby gave her three blue pills to help her deal with stress.

The entertainer's wife of 53 years, Camille, slammed prosecutors for bringing the case to court, calling Steele "heinously and exploitively ambitious" in a statement released after the trial.

The trial has irrevocably damaged the legacy of Cosby, once a towering figure in United States popular culture best known for his seminal role as a lovable father and obstetrician on hit 1984-92 TV series "The Cosby Show".

Cosby has said any sexual activity was consensual. Constand told the jury she was merely returning his calls about the women's basketball squad at Temple University, where she was director of team operations and he was a member of the board of trustees.

In a February 17, 2005, news release, former District Attorney Bruce Castor Jr. said no criminal charges were forthcoming but he would "reconsider" the decision "should the need arise", according to the affidavit.
