Bill Cosby Retrial To Take Place Nov 6

Bill Cosby is scheduled to be retried for alleged sexual assault beginning on Nov. 6. Judge Steven O’Neill, who oversaw the first trial, will oversee the retrial. Cosby was charged more than a year ago for allegedly sexually assaulting former Temple University staffer Andrea Constand in 2004. He pleaded not guilty.

After 50 hours of deliberation the jurors could not make a unanimous decision and Judge O’Neill declared a mistrial on June 17. Cosby did not take the stand but portions of his 2005 and 2006 deposition were used in the trial.

Following the mistrial, Cosby’s team announced the comedian intends to hold sexual assault town halls this summer that will consist of educating the youth on “warning signs from potential victims” that could possibly lead to legal accusations. A Cosby spokesperson pointed out that this town hall is especially important for young athletes who should “know what they’re facing when they’re hanging out and partying, when they’re doing certain things they shouldn’t be doing.”
