But after six days of deliberating, deadlocked jurors told Judge Steven O'Neill they could not reach unanimous verdict on whether Cosby was guilty.
Cosby's defense lawyers attacked Constand's credibility repeatedly at trial, pointing out discrepancies in her account to police when she first reported the assault in 2005. Prosecutors tried to show that Cosby engaged in a pattern of behavior. They called another accuser, Kelly Johnston, to the stand who testified that Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted her in virtually the same way in 1996.
Cosby faces similar allegations from about from about 60 women, dating back decades. Constand's claims were the only ones recent enough to lead to a criminal trial. The 79 year old has denied every accusation and claims that his encounter with Constand was consensual. He also faces a number of civil lawsuits from some of his accusers.
For now, the comedian has avoided up to a decade in prison, a blow to the dozens of women who claim to have been his victims.>> Come on over, guys.
