Jury Announces Deadlock in Cosby Trial, Judge Orders Deliberations to Continue

After over 30 hours of deliberations, the jurors in the Bill Cosby sexual assault trial are deadlocked.

Judge Steven T. O’Neill was told by jurors Thursday morning they are unable to reach a verdict.

“‘We cannot come to a unanimous consensus on any of the counts,” the jurors wrote in a statement to the judge on the fourth day of deliberations.

Cosby faces three counts of aggravated indecent assault against former Temple University employee Andrea Constand, who alleges she was drugged and sexually assaulted by Cosby at his Pennsylvania home in early 2004.

O’Neill has instructed the jurors to deliberate some more in hopes of breaking the gridlock.

“Each of you has the duty to consult with each other to reach a conclusion if it can be reached without violence to your personal judgment,” O’Neill told the jurors, according to the Daily Mail.

“While you should not hesitate to reexamine your views and change your opinions do not feel compelled to surrender your honest belief solely because of the views of your fellow jurors or for the purpose of returning a verdict,” he added.

The jury is deadlocked on all three counts against Cosby.

The lengthy deliberations have appeared to take its toll on Cosby.

Cosby showed little reaction throughout the trial. However, he became noticeably fidgety when the jury requested to hear all of Constand’s testimony again during deliberations.

Andrew Wyatt, Cosby’s spokesman, said the comedian’s fate “was in God’s hands now.”

“Any time you can get people to take time and not rush to a decision that’s all we can ask for,” Wyatt said when asked how the comedian was feeling about the length of the jury’s deliberations, according to the Daily Mail.

“We have no control over their decision right now it’s in God’s hands. There’s nothing we can do about it but we are pleased that they’re asking questions and they’re asking the judge to read back the facts.”
