H12 cosby

In Pennsylvania, prosecutors say they will retry Bill Cosby on criminal sexual assault charges after a jury deadlocked over whether to convict the comedian on three counts of aggravated indecent assault. The mistrial means Cosby will once again face charges he drugged and sexually assaulted Andrea Constand, the former director of operations for the women’s basketball team at Temple University, at Cosby’s home in 2004. Constand is one of about 60 women who have accused Cosby of sexual assaults dating back decades.
