The sexual assault trial regarding critically renowned comedian Bill Cosby and accusers has finally reached a decision–or at least a temporary one. Saturday morning, Judge Steven O’Neill declared a mistrial after the jury, which was composed of seven men and five women, failed to reach a unanimous decision after six days of deliberations. During these deliberations which lasted more than 52 hours, jurors asked 12 questions of the court.
But while some believe this outcome to be a victory, others like Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele and Cosby’s primary accuser, Andrea Constand, know that this case is far from over. Although the case was deemed a mistrial, prosecutors have announced that they will retry the case; that is, Cosby will be retried on three counts of aggravated indecent assault.
Additionally, Judge Steven O’Neill plans on scheduling a new trial within 120 days.

In response to the trial’s current state, a member of Cosby’s legal team, Angela Agrusa, stated:
“Juries are stuck when a prosecutor seeks to put someone in prison for things that are simply not presented in the courtroom. And the jury stuck to what they were asked to do, and that is to review the evidence before them and there simply wasn’t enough.”
A spokeswoman for Cosby’s wife, Camille, also challenged the judge and the District Attorney by asserting:
“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.”
Though many statements were made after the court’s decision, one in particular elicited a wider public response. Following the decision, Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele insisted that he would “move this case forward as soon as possible.”

Lawyer Gloria Allred, a representative of some of Cosby’s accusers, added that “round two may be just around the corner, and this time, justice may prevail.”
Although this highly controversial case currently resides in limbo, it seems that the truth will be revealed within 120 days in accordance with the judge’s statements.
