Bill Cosby trial

Bill Cosby mistrial in sexual assault case

Comedian Bill Cosby has been accused by nearly 60 women of sexual assault, but he’ll face a trial on accusations from just one. Before that can begin, the comedian tried to ensure a deposition he gave a decade ago — in which he admitted to giving women drugs then trying to have sex with them — can’t be used against him in court. The trial began June 5, 2017, and closing arguments began June 12. The jury became deadlocked and a mistrial was declared on June 17.
