Prosecutors say they'll retry Bill Cosby

18 June 2017

Number one, there are some 60 women who have stepped forward to allege that Bill Cosby sexually assaulted them over the course of some 50 years. Those statements were weighed by the jurors against Constand's live testimony, and in the end, all of the jurors were not persuaded that the state proved its case against Cosby.

Cosby's trial started June 5 in Norristown, Pennsylvania.
