The jury must decide whether or not they want to charge the comedian at a later date.

Yes, you read that all correctly. After six days of deliberation, discussion and debate, seven men and five women were unable to render a unanimous verdict on any of the three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault charges on Bill Cosby.

The entertainer, who pleaded not guilty, has denied any wrongdoing in the other accusations hanging over his head. And Kevin R. Steele, the district attorney who brought the charges forth, has immediately announced that he will retry the case. Cosby, 79, never took the stand, but excerpts from his 2005 and 2006 depositions in a civil suit were read aloud.

The two sides closed their respective cases alluding inconsistencies and irregularities in their arguments. Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele described Cosby as a “calculating sexual predator, who not only drugged and assaulted his client in 2004, but also recast the attack as consensual and romantic.” Cosby’s attorney highlighted in his closing statements the accuser’s inconsistencies.

The jury also heard quotes about Cosby’s use of Quaaludes in the 1970s. Cosby admitted to giving the prescription sedative to multiple women with whom he wanted to have sex with, and said that he didn’t take the drug himself. He did not, however, admit to giving the drug to anyone without their knowledge.
