Camille Cosby blasted the district attorney and judge in her husband's sexual assault case after a mistrial was declared Saturday morning.

Cosby's team attacks judge likely to retry him in sex case

  Cosby's team attacks judge likely to retry him in sex case Bill Cosby, the comedian once known as "America's Dad" for his TV role as paternal Dr. Cliff Huxtable, is declaring victory this Father's Day after a juryNo one from Cosby's real or TV families was in court Saturday when the case ended in a mistrial. Instead, Cosby emerged from the courthouse with his publicity team, which read a statement from his wife that accused the judge likely to retry him of arrogance and collusion with prosecutors.

Bill (C) and Camille Cosby and aide Andrew Wyatt enter the Montgomery County Courthouse on June 12, 2017 in in Norristown, Pennsylvania. Judge Steven O'Neill denied the motion, after first asking Cosby if he consented to his attorneys ' move.

But that’s not likely, a former Pennsylvania assistant district attorney told Time.com. But given the circumstances, the judge could hand Cosby , who is 78, a higher sentence than that. Monique Pressley, Cosby ’s attorney , said it’s too soon to say whether Camille Cosby will testify in court.

“How do I describe the district attorney? Heinously and exploitively ambitious,” she said in a written statement. “How do I descride the judge? Overtly arrogant in collaborating with the district attorney.”

Camille continued on to describe Cosby’s accuser’s as “totally unethical” and the media “as blatanly vicious entities that continually disseminated intentional omissions of truth for the primary purpose of greedily selling sensationalism at the expense of human life.”

After 52 hours of deliberation, jurors told Judge Steven O’Neill they were unable to reach a unanimous verdict on charges that Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted Andrea Constand in his Philadelphia mansion back in 2004.

O’Neill praised the jury for their efforts, assuring them their struggle to reach consensus “is merely the justice system at work.”

Cosby lawyers fighting civil suits by 10 women

  Cosby lawyers fighting civil suits by 10 women Bill Cosby's sexual assault case in Pennsylvania has ended in a mistrial, but the comedian's civil lawyers still are fighting lawsuits against him by 10 women around the country. Currently, seven women have defamation suits pending in Massachusetts, while three more have defamation or sexual battery suits pending in California. Cosby has denied any wrongdoing.

A federal judge on Thursday denied a motion by Camille Cosby to throw out a subpoena requiring her to give a deposition in the lawsuit. This booking photograph of Bill Cosby released by the Montgomery County District Attorney 's Office, who was arrested and charged Wednesday.

Cosby’s wife similarly praised the panel, made up of five women and seven men, for the six days they spent reviewing a series of conflicting accounts and testimonies.

“Historically, people have challenged injustices,” Camille said. “I am grateful to any of the jurors who tenaciously fought to review the evidence; which is the rightful way to make a sound decision... ultimately that is a manifestation of justice, based on facts, not lies.”

While Cosby has been accused of sexual assault by dozens on women, only Constand’s allegations resulted in a criminal trial.

The 79-year-old actor in 2015 was charged with three counts of aggravated indecent assault. He pleaded not guilty to the charges, though in recent years he has admitted to cheating on his wife and obtaining Quaaludes with the intent of giving them to women he was interested in seducing.

The Montgomery District Attorney Office, minutes after the judge declared a mistrial, announced its intentions to retry the case.

If Cosby is found guilty he faces 10 years in prison for each assault charge.

District Attorney Kevin Steele said he hoped to revisit the Cosby case within four months.

Cosby juror: 'Not enough evidence' led to mistrial .
Another juror in Bill Cosby's sexual assault trial came forward Monday — the first to go on camera — and said the mistrial in the 13-year-old case was due to a lack of convincing evidence for all 12 jurors to agree unanimously on a verdict. Bobby Dugan, 21, one of the youngest of the seven men and five women on the jury, spoke to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Philadelphia Daily News and to ABC's Good Morning America, becoming the first of the deadlocked jury to appear on camera and with his name attached to his comments.
