In a dramatic turn of events, Bill Cosby‘s sexual assault trial has just ended – without a verdict.
The jury in the case were unable to reach a decision, as such a mistrial was declared.
Per reports, the jury deliberated for more than 5 days and on Friday told the judge they were deadlocked after 53 hours of deliberations. Thereafter, the judge pressured the jury to reach a decision by not allowing them to wrap up until 9:30 PM.
Ironically, the jury deliberated for more than 52 hours — which was longer than the entire trial.
Cosby, who has been accused of drugging and raping over 50 women, denies any wrongdoing.
Prosectors have promised that a re-trial will take place.
But until then, the actor is free …for now.
