Judge declares mistrial in Cosby case

AFP  |  Norristown (US) 

A US judge has declared a mistrial in Bill Cosby's sexual assault case, after the jury deadlocked following more than 50 hours of deliberations over whether to convict the fallen TV star.

The move amounts to a victory of sorts for the 79-year- old pioneering black actor, who had faced spending the rest of his life in prison if convicted on three counts of aggravated indecent assault against 44-year-old Andrea Constand at his Philadelphia mansion in January 2004.
