Camille Cosby bashes prosecutors following husband's mistrial

At least 10 women have pending civil claims against Cosby in lawsuits filed in California and MA. It says the trial has "given a voice to the many victims who felt powerless and silenced".

Jurors also asked for, and received, a definition of reasonable doubt, the threshold that prosecutors must cross to win a conviction, and reviewed testimony from Constand and her mother about phone conversations they had with Cosby after the encounter.

She condemned the district attorney as "heinously and exploitatively ambitious", the judge as "overtly arrogant", lawyers for the accusers as "totally unethical" and "many" in the media as "blatantly vicious". A subsequent investigation found insufficient evidence to pursue criminal charges against Cosby.

Then, a Twitter meme campaign by the Cosby team went awry. In Cosby's case, that could have involved the more than 60 other women who have accused him of assaults dating to the 1960s.

Vettel, who failed to improve his time on his final attempt in Q3. "Ayrton is the one who inspired me to be where I am". For his part, third-place qualifier Bottas was short and to the point: "The race is tomorrow".

Troiani acknowledged the difficulty of the case, given the passage of time and the impact of the alleged drugging on Constand's ability to recall details. She woke up the next morning in his home with her sweater bunched up and her bra undone, the affidavit says.

"This is a case about drug-fueled sexual assault", said Steele.

The jury deliberated for 52 hours before the judge declared a mistrial and afterwards prosecutors said they would seek a re-trial.

According to the testimony, Cosby called himself a "sick man" but refused to identify the pills he gave to Constand. "We came here looking for an acquittal but like that Rolling Stones song says, 'You don't always get what you want, sometimes you get what you need", McMonagle said as he stood under the portico of the courthouse with Cosby.

But, she noted, the prosecutor has already announced plans to try Cosby again - a declaration that drew a gasp from the spectators in the courtroom.

Constand alleges she then became incapacitated and was led to a couch, where Cosby is alleged to have fondled her breasts, put his hands inside her trousers, and penetrated her vagina with his fingers.

Women's rights attorney Gloria Allred, who's representing some of the other women accusing Cosby of sexual assault, also addressed reporters on Saturday.

The judge pressured them to reach a decision by not allowing them to throw in the towel until 9:30pm.

Joe Manchin , D-W.V., a member of the Intelligence Committee, said. "I'm not going to say, "I want you to pledge allegiance". But Capitol Hill observers sat rapt as Comey bluntly delivered what might have been an exit interview for the ages.

The controversial district attorney had used the Cosby case in a 2015 campaign ad, slamming his opponent for failing to bring criminal charges. They tried for six days before telling a judge that an unanimous decision was not possible. Prosecutors in Los Angels examined two of the allegations but declined to pursue charges, citing in one case the statute of limitations and in another case a lack of evidence.
