The judge presiding over the Bill Cosby trial has declared a mistrial as the jury have failed to reach an agreement.

Cosby is currently facing trail for the sexual assault of Andrea Constand at his Philadelphia mansion in 2004.

The jury said it could not reach a unanimous decision after deliberating for more than 50 hours.

Cosby’s wife Camille has condemned those who pursued the case, describing the district attorney as “heinously and exploitively ambitious”, and the judge as “overtly arrogant”.

Cosby’s lawyer Angela Agrusa said: “This is what happens, juries are stuck when a prosecutor seeks to put someone in prison for things that are simply not presented in the courtroom.”

Cosby faced spending the rest of his life in prison if he was convicted on three counts of aggravated indecent assault.

Prosecutors have vowed to retry the 79 year-old, who is known for his long-running sitcom The Cosby Show.
