Bill Cosby faces retrial in sex assault case

Posted: Updated:

NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) - Prosecutors in Bill Cosby's sexual assault trial have vowed to try him a second time.

A suburban Philadelphia judge declared a mistrial on Saturday after a jury insisted it was hopelessly deadlocked on charges the 79-year-old TV star drugged and molested Temple University employee Andrea Constand at his Philadelphia-area home in 2004. Cosby says the encounter was consensual.

District Attorney Kevin Steele says he's disappointed jurors didn't reach a unanimous decision, but says he'll retry Cosby. The jury deliberated for more than 52 hours over six days.

Cosby will remain free on $1 million bail.
