The jury in Bill Cosby’s trial failed to reach a verdict after a fourth day of deliberations and will resume its work on Friday at 9 a.m.
Earlier Thursday, jurors said they were deadlocked and could not come to a unanimous consensus on any of the three counts of aggravated indecent assault the comedian faces.
“If you are still deadlocked, you should report that to me. If you’ve reached a unanimous decision on some of the charges, please report that back to me,” Judge Steven O’Neill said.
O’Neill then asked the jury, which began deliberating Monday evening, to go back for another attempt to reach a verdict. After O’Neill’s direction, jurors worked into the evening. They have deliberated for about 40 hours in all.
