  • I don't think so. The way it goes is that if there is so much as 1 reasonable doubt, the accused must not be found guilty, because the system is set up in favor of the accused.

    Of course I am inclined to believe that he did assault at least someone, because SO many people accused him. But if the jury really is deadlocked even after hearing all the evidence, there must be a reasonable doubt.

  • @melanielust , i agree with some statements you said, but I don't think he abused anyone. The women could have wanted the money.
  • He is getting top notch legal representation , raising every conceivable reasonable doubt.  If it would be someone else they would likely be in jail awhile ago, but it is very possible that there is a line of gold diggers (atleast for some of the women)..just not sure

  • Reminds me of OJ Simpson.  Good lawyer goes a long way...
  • Due to Cosby's age, fame, and this hung jury, I doubt they'll retry this case.

  • @CYDdharta, you are most likely right.

  • @agsr LOL, I thought that's what would happen, but the Monkey County DA was talking about retrying the case as soon as the verdict was rendered
  • @CYDdharta, yes, looks like that's what he is now saying. Lets see if he does, and if this time it would not get the same mistrial outcome
