After two days of tough deliberation, the jury selected to serve in the Bill Cosby case were unable to come to a unanimous decision, ending the case in a mistrial. The comedian faced three charges of aggravated indecent assault.
“We’ve been at this now for 10 days (including testimony). There has been nothing but a supreme effort on your part,” Judge Steven O’Neill told the jury on Friday, according to CNN.
A spokesperson for Cosby read a statement from his wife, Camille Cosby, who expressed her disappointment about how the case has been handled thus far.
“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.”
The twitter account on behalf of the 79-year-old comedian posted a message thanking all of the local supporters in Norristown, Pennsylvania where the trial took place.
