Cosby Renewed for Second Season: DA Vows to Retry Cosby After Jury Deadlock Results in Mistrial


Looks like anyone who was following the criminal trial in Montgomery County, PA will get a second season. The district attorney responsible for bringing to trial has vowed today that he will retry the legendary comedian after the judge in the case officially declared a mistrial.

“She deserves a verdict in this case,” Kevin Steele promised referring to alleged victim Andrea Constand, “and we will push forward to try and get justice done.”

Steele has four months to set a plan for a second trial, and round two could come about some time in 2017.

The mistrial was declared on Saturday morning by Judge Steven O’Neill after 52 hours of deliberation. The jury had come back to the judge on Thursday telling him that they were deadlocked, but O’Neill asked them to go back and try to come up with a verdict.

Soon after the decision came down, Cosby’s wife, Camille, issued a statement attacking the D.A., the judge, and the accusers.

“How do I describe the District Attorney? Heinously and exploitively ambitious. How do I describe the judge? Overtly and arrogantly collaborating with the District Attorney. How do I describe the counsels for the accusers? Totally unethical. How do I describe many, but not all, general media? Blatantly vicious entities that continually disseminated intentional omissions of truths for the primary purpose of greedily selling sensationalism at the expense of a human life.”

If convicted Cosby faces a potential 10 years behind bars.
