Despite Andrea Constand Getting Caught In Lie, Prosecutors Plan To Retry Bill Cosby In November

(SL) – More tax dollars will be spent as District Attorney Kevin Steele’s will continue to go after Bill Cosby.

Judge Steven O’Neill signed an order Thursday saying all parties must report to the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pennsylvania, on November 6.

The jury failed to reach a verdict after more than 52 hours of deliberations, leading O’Neill to declare a mistrial on June 17.

During the trial, phone records forced Andrea Constand to admit she lied about the date in which the assault happened.  After several phone calls proved there was no way she was unconscious on the night she claims Cosby drugged and assaulted her.

O’Neill, who oversaw the first trial, ordered attorneys to submit jury selection questions and instructions by October 30.

Around 60 women have publicly accused Cosby, 79, of being a serial sexual predator, alleging that he drugged and assaulted them over a span of 40 years across the United States. And almost all of those women admit to continuing a relationship with Cosby after the alleged assaults. Some even accepted money, jobs and educations for their children.

Due to the more than four decades that have passed, Constand’s allegations were the only criminal case brought against him and a jury failed to convict him on any of the charges.

HOW THE JURY WAS DEADLOCKED

COUNT 1 – Digital penetration without consent

Not guilty – 2

Guilty – 1

Not guilty – 11

COUNT 3 – Cosby gave Constand drugs without her knowledge or consent before the ‘attack’

Cosby will face the same three counts of aggravated sexual assault.
