Gloria Allred to Bill Cosby: 'Round 2 is coming'

Gloria Allred to Bill Cosby: 'Round 2 is coming'

Olivia Wilde retweeted justice writer Shaun King, who said, "How will our justice system sensibly hold ANY men accountable for sexual assault when the President of the United States gets away with it?"

Cosby's defense lawyers, however, argued that Constand's account could not be trusted after they pointed to numerous discrepancies in her statements to police in 2005, when she first reported the alleged incident almost a year later.

Although the case ended in a mistrial, District Attorney Kevin Steele immediately announced plans to retry Cosby on the same charges, promising to "move the case forward as soon as possible".

"She will absolutely come back again", she said. "It's a tragedy. He ruined lives", she said.

Constand told jurors Cosby gave her pills that made her woozy and then penetrated her with his fingers as she lay paralyzed on a couch, unable to tell him to stop. "I AM A THRIVER!" she said in a statement.

He also tried to sow doubt about Constand's story, saying it had evolved during her interviews with police.

"She has been positive in every way and continues to be", Steele said, adding Constand had indicated she would continue to cooperate with prosecutors.

Constand returned to her parents' home in Canada three months later. Her parents noticed a change in her personality and that she had trouble sleeping. She did not disclose what happened until January 2005, when Constand and her mother reported the incident to authorities.

His defense team acknowledged Cosby and Constand had a sexual encounter, but said it was consensual. He described their previous encounters as "social and romantic".

Ms Constand's claim is the only one to reach court because the time limits on all the others have run out.

Another Cosby accuser, Jewel Allison, also spoke to the media following the mistrial.

The lawyers appealed for privacy for Constand and her family.

All the while, Cosby maintained his innocence through his lawyers, who called the accusers liars and opportunists.

Cosby himself didn't comment. Cosby was charged shortly before the statute of limitations was set to expire.
