After a mistrial from a hung jury Cosby set to go on trial again.
Here is what Cosby is facing:
What Is Cosby Accused Of?
He is accused of drugging and sexually violating a woman at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004. Andrea Constand says Cosby gave her pills that made her paralyzed and unable to fight him off as he groped her breast and genitals. His lawyers said they were in a romantic relationship and what happened was consensual. The Associated Press does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, which Constand has done.
What Is He Charged With?
Three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault, each covering a different aspect of the alleged crime. NBC 10
A retrial is permissible after a trial ends in a mistrial when a jury fails to reach a verdict. The trial will involve the same charges, perhaps the same witnesses, but may involve a different strategy and a different way of presenting the evidence. The judge may or may not make the same rulings depending on how the lawyers present their cases.
The trial is set to begin November 6.
