Defense Attorney, Brian McMonagle also made a statement saying that Cosby became the focus of these accusations because he was an easy target for the woman who thought they could get money out of him. "We are sprouting up, we are looking for reform, uncovering the rape culture in this country where victims are blamed and shamed".

Camille Cosby has issued a statement regarding husband Bill Cosby's sexual assault case after it was ruled a mistrial Saturday.

The jury in his sexual assault case against Andrea Constand deadlocked and the case was declared a mistrial. SMH. Breitbart posted a video of Wyatt after the mistrial was granted and he wasted no time in taking a shot at Gloria, whom he accused of conspiring against Cosby with other lawyers.

A conviction could send Cosby to prison for the rest of his life, but the case has already helped demolish Cosby's nice-guy image, cultivated during his eight-year run as Dr. Cliff Huxtable on "The Cosby Show", the top-rated 1980s and '90s sitcom. Constand was the women's basketball team manager at Cosby's alma mater.

Jurors deliberated more than 52 hours over six days before telling a judge they couldn't agree on whether "The Cosby Show" star drugged and molested Andrea Constand in 2004.

Referring to the comedian, Masten said she "will not degrade myself to ever" utter his name again.

In another visit he gave her a mix of pills and wine that left her feeling "frozen" and "paralyzed" as he fondled her body and placed his hand on his genitals, the affidavit said.

In civil lawsuits in the United States, plaintiffs need only show that the weight of evidence is on their side, meaning they have information to tip the scales above 50 percent in their favor, as opposed to criminal cases in which prosecutors must prove claims beyond a reasonable doubt. "How do I describe the District Attorney?"

But in the aggregate, he said, Cosby could face a comparable award because of the number of alleged victims.

"The defamation case is this clever way of saying, If I say you raped me and you say it didn't happen, then you're defaming me by calling me a liar", he said.

Last year, California scrapped its statute of limitations on sex crimes altogether, and Nevada and Colorado extended theirs to 20 years.

"Girls" creator Lena Dunham, 31, was quick to express repugnance for the outcome: "Bill Cosby's trial is about much more than Bill Cosby".

"With DNA now available, this practice is antiquated to say the very least", she said.

"I have been nothing but extraordinarily impressed by you all", O'Neill told the jury, adding that declaring a mistrial meant neither a victory nor a loss.

Cosby, who gave the deposition as part of Constand's lawsuit against him, said he got seven prescriptions for the powerful sedative in the 1970s for the objective of giving them to women with whom he wanted to have sex.

Constand, now 44, initially went to police about a year after she said Cosby assaulted her, but a prosecutor declared her case too weak to bring charges. Said Allred: "We can never underestimate the blinding power of celebrity, but justice will come".

"If the court allows more accusers to testify ... it might make a difference".

On Friday, the jury asked to review multiple pieces of evidence, including Cosby's decade-old deposition testimony about quaaludes.
