Cosby accuser thanks prosecutors after mistrial

The Cosby Show alum, who pleaded not guilty, had been charged with three counts of aggravated indecent assault and could have faced up to 30 years in prison. "Totally unethical", said Camille Cosby. She said that the star brought her three blue pills, telling her they would help her relax and they were safe. Over two visits, she said, he touched her "without warning" and tried to unbutton her trousers before she stopped him. Statement from Camille Cosby: How do I describe the District Attorney? He has said it was Benadryl, a cold and allergy medicine. She woke up the next morning in his home with her sweater bunched up and her bra undone, the affidavit says. "You treated her well". Her parents noticed a change in her personality and that she had trouble sleeping. He described their previous encounters as "social and romantic".

"Mr Cosby's power is back".

But Victoria Valentino, a former Playboy model who has accused Cosby of drugging and raping her decades ago, had a message for him: "You're not off the hook, buddy".

He still faces a number of civil lawsuits alleging assault and defamation.

He dismissed questions about the allegations during an Associated Press interview in 2014 and pressed the reporter not to let the public see or hear his answers to the questions.

"A woman's worth was on trial these past two weeks".

Cosby's legal team declared victory out the courthouse.

Cosby's alma mater, the University of MA at Amherst, cut ties with him, the first in what would become a long list of organizations to do so.

Prosecutors are praising Constand and say she's "entitled to a verdict in this case". She also painted many within the general media as being "blatantly vicious entities" who greedily sell sensationalism "at the expense of a human life". "They've been intimate", he said.

NPR host Scott Simon filled the airtime by saying Cosby was just "shaking his head no". But in most of those cases, the statute of limitations had expired by the time the women told their stories publicly.

Bill Cosby jury to hear more of his deposition testimony
Cosby has pleaded not guilty to three charges of aggravated indecent assault. "What's she going to say tomorrow?" he said. The arguments came after the defense on Monday called just a single witness at the start of the second week of the trial.

TAYLOR: Unfortunately, while I am disappointed, I am not surprised that you could not find 12 jurors based on the facts and evidence in this case who would convict Bill Cosby of rape.

He encouraged sexual assault victims to come forward. "Despite the disappointing outcome of this case, I take comfort knowing that Bill Cosby's life is now, and forever will be, a living hell". But her lawyer, Dolores Troiani, said "she's a very spiritual person".

The revelations led newly elected Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele to seek charges.

Cosby was arraigned in December 2015.

Allred also addressed the media after the mistrial was declared.

Bill Cosby leaves the Montgomery County Courthouse during his sexual assault trial, Friday, June 16, 2017, in Norristown, Pa.

As people, we strongly identify with the people whose work we relate to deeply. Prosecutors have suggested he gave her something stronger, possibly quaaludes.

The jury was made up of four white women, six white men, one black woman and one black man; Cosby is black. Judge Steven O'Neill told them to return to their deliberations where they "must agree unanimously" on a verdict. He ordered them to keep trying but declared a mistrial June 17, the sixth day of their deliberations.

Additionally, prosecutors are declaring they will retry the case later on.

"We'll meet with the judge and get a timeline on what we're going to do", Steele said.
