The Bill Cosby s*x assault case has been declared a mistrial by the Judge presiding over the case, after the jury was deadlocked for a second time.
Announcing the decision, Pennsylvania judge Steven O'Neill reminded Mr Cosby that he remains charged and on bail, despite the mistrial.
Following the mistrial, Cosby's spokesperson did some chest thumping.

Steele of Montgomery County immediately vowed to put Cosby on trial again.
Count 1 alleges that Cosby didn't have consent when he penetrated Constand's genitals with his fingers.

"We can never underestimate the blinding power of celebrity", Allred stated outside the courthouse. This whole trial was an attempt at a take-down, she suggested, by people who had already made up their minds - or even had an ax to grind - about her husband. He says it was consensual.
Later, after the jury was out of the room, O'Neill said the trial was the "largest undertaking in probably the history of this county" and thanked public and the news media for their good behavior in the courtroom.
"It's a challenging case but for numerous accusers they think it's a pretty simple case and that if it we're other than Mr. Cosby maybe there could have been a different result", added Allred.
It was unclear how close the jury was to reaching a decision. Heinously and exploitatively ambitious, ' Camille Cosby said in the statement.
