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.
The jury deadlocked after more than five days of deliberations.
“The big difference is he’s been charged with three felonies.”
An Allegheny County jury will decide the only criminal sexual assault charges the comedian faces.
