Bill Cosby's attorney says he is worried about entertainer's health

Shortly after a Montgomery County judge declared a mistrial Saturday in the grueling and emotional sexual assault trial of the comedian once known as "America's Dad", the attorney for Bill Cosby's main accuser said her client gave a voice to sexual assault victims.

In their sixth day of deliberations, jurors sent word to Judge Steven T. O'Neill that they could not reach a unanimous verdict on the charges that, in 2004, Cosby had drugged and assaulted Andrea Constand in his Pennsylvania home.

The trial of Cosby, who lives on a compound in Shelburne, began June 5 and was in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.

Legal experts say prosecutors in Bill Cosby's sexual assault case are likely to reshape their case for the second trial.

Among the women who huddled with Constand was Victoria Valentino, who said Cosby assaulted her almost five decades ago.

Constand testified that the assault had occurred as she visited the home of Bill Cosby, who was a Temple trustee, when she was 30 and he was 66.

An eighth woman withdrew her lawsuit and a federal judge dismissed a ninth accuser's case, finding her complaint inadequate.

The mistrial was a blow to the dozens of women who have said they were sexually assaulted by Cosby, including several who attended the trial wearing buttons that read "We Stand in Truth". Cosby's wife, Camille - who skipped all but the defence closing argument - issued a blistering statement Saturday.

Cosby's civil lawyers still are fighting lawsuits against him by 10 women around the country.

Scalise Upgraded From Critical To Serious Condition
He had with him a piece of paper with doodles and the names of three politicians, according to a person familiar with the case. The American Hospital Association defines "critical" condition as: "Vital signs are unstable and not within normal limits".

"She has shown such courage through this, and we are in awe of what she has done", District Attorney Kevin Steele said. Cosby's trial ended without a verdict after jurors failed to reach a unanimous decision. With Cosby standing quietly by his side, he told them in no uncertain terms that they should "go back to law school".

Prosecutors vowed to retry the 79-year-old, saying Constand supported the decision.

"She's a very spiritual woman, she believes things happen for a objective, and I think the goal is.it should encourage other women to come forward and have their day in court", said her lawyer, Dolores Troiani. 'How do I describe the judge?

He co-starred in the 1960s espionage show "I Spy", the first black performer to star in a weekly American TV dramatic series.

Jewel Allison, a New York-based artist, poet and activist who has said Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted her in the 1980s, hugged Constand in the courtroom after the mistrial announcement.

Andrea later told police that he had drugged her in such a way that she could not keep her eyes open.

The jury that said it was "hopelessly deadlocked" on Saturday was selected in Pittsburgh, then bused to suburban Philadelphia and sequestered during 11 days of testimony and deliberations. "I see you. I love you".

By Thursday morning, after almost 30 hours of discussions spanning three days, the jurors told O'Neill they were at a stalemate. "T he prosecution needed 12 for a verdict - the defense only needed one for a mistrial". "Bill Cosby's rape case", said Armour, who teaches at the University of South California. Cosby was arrested on charges he assaulted Constand in 2016.
