Bill Cosby sexual assault case to be retried this spring

Bill Cosby retrial postponed to 2018

Cosby has signed up three new lawyers, including Thomas Mesereau, the flamboyantly mop-haired lawyer who has famously defended accused celebrities Michael Jackson, Mike Tyson, Robert Blake and Marion "Suge" Knight. Cosby will be retried on April, 2, 2018.

Bill Cosby's retrial on sexual assault charges in Pennsylvania has been scheduled for April of next year.

Constand says she was drugged and taken to a couch where Cosby allegedly carried out a sex assault, but Cosby maintains that the sex was consensual.

Cosby's first trial ended in June with the jury deadlocked after 52 yours of deliberations.

The trial was originally to have started on November 6, but Judge Steven O'Neill of the Court of Common Pleas in Norristown, Pennsylvania agreed to postpone it until the spring to give the actor's new lawyers time to prepare. His current legal team is Tom Mesereau, Kathleen Bliss and Samuel Silver.

A Montgomery County judge today set a date for the retrial of entertainer Bill Cosby on sexual assault charges.

She has said he gave her pills that left her semi-conscious, then made sexual advances - a story not unlike those recounted by numerous other accusers.
