    The comment was in response to a comment about trying again after an acquittal, not a hung jury.

    Hung Jury: Bill Cosby Sexual Assault Trial Ends in Mistrial

    by Hannah Rappleye and Tracy Connor

    NORRISTOWN, Pa. — Bill Cosby's sexual assault trial ended Saturday with a jury that was deadlocked on all counts, punctuating an epic scandal with a giant question mark.

    After more than 50 hours of deliberation over six days, the jury of seven men and five women was unable to reach a verdict, and Montgomery County Judge Steven O'Neill declared a mistrial.

    "Do not in any way feel you have let the justice system down," O'Neill told the jury...

    Waiting with great interest to hear the jury breakdown. I'm surprised the DA has announced the case will be retried without knowing that info.

    I would want to learn a lot more about that. For instance do we know how many days those 53 calls spanned? Someone calling somebody 53 times in a short time frame seems excessive.

    And I could see either side of the case using that information to prove their argument.

    The above is just my opinion.

    Or vice versa.

    The above is just my opinion.

    Does anyone know if the retrial will have the same judge?

    Maybe if more of the other women are allowed to testify they can get a conviction...moo.

    And would they use the same jury pool? In other words would they make the case for it being moved to another location?

    I'm not surprised at this outcome after the jury deliberations lasted so long but I'm glad he is being retried.

    We will have a toast when he is retried, found guilty, and goes to prison. Moo.
    Imo there is much public desensitization to and acceptance for his alleged crimes due to his celebrity status, just like OJ...thumbs down!! Wake up people! (Not you guys...)

    Thanks everyone for the updates.

    Me too. This is not the worst that could happen imo. (Also I am glad he has to go through it all again, the b*****d) though my thoughts are with the accusers, I wish them the strength to continue to get justice.
