Cosby team triumphant, but retrial looms

19 June 2017

According to prosecutors, Andrea Constand deserves a verdict in the Bill Cosby sex assault case.

"Bill Cosby has already been exposed as a predator who hid behind his jovial mask for more than 50 years and no jury verdict will ever change that", she posted on Facebook.

Gloria Allred, attorney representing 33 of the more than 60 women who have publicly accused Cosby of assaulting them over 40 years, also spoke to the media on Saturday.

District Attorney Kevin Steele said Friday he would push for a retrial as soon as possible, reassess the case and possibly make some "tweaks".

Dan Biggar (concussion) and Sam Warburton (ankle) will return against Highlanders , but Ross Moriarty is out with a back strain. If he comes through in Dunedin, Warburton will be in the first of those two categories.

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

An eighth woman withdrew her lawsuit and a federal judge dismissed a ninth accuser's case, finding her complaint inadequate. She gave an impassioned statement afterwards that was read on the steps of the courthouse by a family spokesman.

Cosby was accused of sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in 2004.

Constand met Cosby at Temple when she worked there as director of operations for the university's women's basketball team. But her lawyer, Dolores Troiani, said "she's a very spiritual person. Heinously and exploitively ambitious", Cosby's statement began. She also criticized the judge, the accuser's lawyers and the media. The district attorney at the time declined to press charges, citing insufficient evidence.

The star's loyal spokesman Andrew Wyatt (left, celebrating the mistrial) announced visitors to the room where he was sent during breaks as though it was his dressing room. "It has been restored".

In a recorded deposition, the TV star confessed to plying women with sedatives before having sex with them.

Chloe Goins, a former model who claims Cosby drugged and sexually abused her at the Playboy Mansion in 2008, is also suing the comedian on sexual battery and other claims. Was the case simply not as strong as prosecutors hoped?

The jurors clearly struggled with their verdict, telling Judge Steven O'Neill on Thursday they were at impasse. In that case, prosecutors would get four months to decide whether they want to retry Cosby or drop the charges. "I see you. I love you". "I feel bad for all of you, I really do". "T he prosecution needed 12 for a verdict - the defense only needed one for a mistrial". It must come to a unanimous decision to convict or acquit. None of the jurors commented after the trial ended and they headed home to the Pittsburgh area, some 300 miles (480 kilometers) from the courthouse outside Philadelphia.
