Cosby accuser shoots hoops amid deliberations

"You could have a conscientious jury that is taking their civic responsibility very seriously...wanting to do a diligent job of going through the evidence and making sure they understand it correctly", said Bressler, who is co-counsel in the forthcoming sexual assault civil case, Green v. Cosby.

Thursday morning the seemingly exhausted jury said that they are unable to find unanimous agreement on any of the three charges in the trial that rested on June 12.

A defence motion for a mistrial due to a deadlocked jury was dismissed and the jury ordered back to the deliberation room they have called home for four days.

Yet before they were released for the evening, a rattled O'Neill bizarrely brought in the exhausted-looking jury, appeared to chastise them, and sent them back to the jury room-forgetting to formally dismiss them.

If the trial ends in a hung jury, the district attorney could choose to retry the case, but prosecutors would not likely move for an immediate retrial, according to a spokeswoman for the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office.

Cosby is facing up to ten years in prison on each count if convicted on three charges of aggravated indecent assault relating to an alleged sexual assault of Andrea Constand in 2005.

Even so it is thought Real will fight to keep Ronaldo and could even pay the outstanding tax bill of £13million in an attempt to convince him to stay.

"They're conflicted about the inconsistencies in Ms. Constand's testimony", spokesman Andrew Wyatt said. Each carries a maximum 10-year prison term. The judge also asked Cosby if he knows what a mistrial is.

On Thursday, the jury entered into its fourth day of deliberations - and announced that it can not arrive at a unanimous decision despite extended deliberations.

Cosby, who gave the deposition as part of Constand's lawsuit against him, said in 2006 he never took quaaludes himself, preferring to keep them on hand for social situations.

Constand and other accusers say Cosby, the star of the 1980s hit TV comedy The Cosby Show, often plied them with pills and alcohol before assaulting them, in a series of incidents over four decades.

Nothing has filtered out about the state of the deliberations, with only hints to be gleaned from questions they have asked O'Neill.

While many in the courthouse have been speculating about the jury's progress, it has been couched under a thick veil of confidentiality - the jurors have been warned against talking to the media while judicial officials refused to tell The New York Times whether they are able to have a computer over the course of their sequester.

Trump not under investigation, his lawyer insists
Sekulow , chief counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice, said the president was only referring to a news report. But legal analysts say few criminal investigations begin with an identified target.

Cosby did not testify at the trial, but the jury heard a police interview with him from 2005 as well as his depositions. Prosecutors have suggested he might have given her quaaludes.

Dozens of women have come forward to say Cosby had drugged and assaulted them, but this was the only case to result in criminal charges.

The case has already helped demolish his nice-guy reputation as America's Dad.

Accuser Andrea Constand says Cosby drugged and molested her.

"I thought he loved me, too", Bernard said.

The Associated Press does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, which Constand has done. "That's the question", said criminal lawyer Alan J. Tauber, who wasn't involved in the case.
