Jury Deadlocked In Bill Cosby Case
I can’t say I didn’t see this coming.
The after four days of deliberations, the jury in the Bill Cosby sexual assault case announced they are deadlocked on a verdict.
Via NY Post:
The jury of seven men and five women passed a note to Montgomery County Judge Steve O’Neill at 11:06 a.m. saying they were unable to reach a verdict after about 32 hours of deliberations over the past four days.
“We cannot come to a unanimous consensus on any of the counts,” the note said.
O’Neill sent the jurors back to continue deliberating.
“Each of you has a duty to consult with each other to reach a conclusion, if it can be done without violence,” O’Neill joked. “If, after re-deliberation, you are still deadlocked, you should report that to me.”
The jurors are considering three counts of aggravated indecent assault against Cosby for allegedly drugging and molesting former Temple University basketball manager Andrea Constand at his home in 2004.
They have been deliberating since Monday.
The 79-year-old comedian faces up to 30 years – or 10 years on each count – if convicted.
I can’t pass any judgement on the jury because they had a task I definitely wouldn’t have wanted.
