Camille Cosby Calls The DA ‘Heinously And Exploitively Ambitious’ After Husband’s Mistrial

The judge in the Bill Cosby trial declared a mistrial Saturday after the jury failed to reach a verdict in the case.While Constand waited for jurors to come to their decision on Thursday, she passed time shooting mini-basketballs in a hallway at the Mongomery County Courthouse in Norristown, and she tweeted a 25-second, slow-motion video of her shooting a ball through a hoop attached to a cart. Before the trial, a probable cause affidavit laid out her version of events, which she says occurred between mid-January and mid-February of 2004. O’Neill could schedule the retrial within weeks.The judge in the sexual assault trial of Bill Cosby declared a mistrial Saturday after jurors reported being hopelessly deadlocked after six days of deliberations, bringing an inconclusive end to this phase of one of the highest-profile cases in recent history.In the retrial, District Attorney Kevin Steele could ask the judge to let more of Cosby’s 60 accusers testify or disclose to jurors that Constand is gay.”Serious question: How will Cosby ever get an unbiased jury?” McAndrews suggested that a jury pool could be drawn from the Harrisburg area of Dauphin County, or from the Scranton area of Lackawanna County.Cosby told investigators in Pennsylvania that he gave Constand Benadryl and that the encounter was consensual. Granular details of the evidence were splayed across newspaper front pages and websites, parsed on radio talk shows and pored over in dueling spin contests. Mr. Cosby testified that he did obtained multiple prescriptions for quaaludes in the 1970s with the intent of using them to sedate women with whom he wanted to have sex.Following the mistrial, Cosby’s spokesperson did some chest thumping. The judge had previously sent the jury from outside Pittsburgh back to deliberate but they were unable to come to a consensus on any of the three counts.”Anything can happen because it’s a new set of jurors”, Levenson said. “They want the element of surprise”. Now 44, Ms. Constand says that he gave her some pills that made her “woozy” before sexually assaulting her with his fingers. “Because he drugged her to do this”, the prosecutor told jurors.But first to the sexual assault case involving comedy legend Bill Cosby. If prosecutors conclude the latter, they might seek new or additional experts. This is the one case to come to trial.Camille Cosby’s statement continued: “Historically, people have challenged injustices”. She accused Judge Steven T. O’Neill, who oversaw the case, of “arrogantly” siding with the prosecution. She called the prosecutors heinously and exploitively ambitious. “We commend those prosecutors who raised awareness that one of the hallmarks of drug-related sexual assaults is the effect the drug has on the victim’s memory and ability to recall and were nonetheless willing to present this evidence to the jury”.Bill Cosby listens to his wife Camille’s statement being read aloud by Ebonee M. Benson outside the Montgomery County Courthouse after a mistrial in his sexual assault case in Norristown, Pa., Saturday, June 17, 2017.He remains free on bail pending the new trial.Constand did not speak to reporters, but her attorney, Dolores Troiani, said Constand was a “very spiritual person who believes everything happens for a reason”. “Next time is the big game”.
