The retrial of Bill Cosby on sexual assault charges is underway in Norristown, Pennsylvania. The first time the comedian was tried on these charges ended in a deadlocked jury. This latest trial is taking place in a different environment, after the #MeToo movement began. Defending Cosby this time is National Trial Lawyer member Tom Mesereau, who successfully defended Michael Jackson on child molestation charges in 2005. The Washington Post produced this video on what you need to know about Cosby’s retrial.
Despite a hung jury in Bill Cosby’s sexual assault trial in Pennsylvania, there’s no end in sight to his legal woes. “If the court allows more accusers next time to testify, it might make a difference,” said attorney (and National Trial Lawyers member) Gloria Allred outside court. Variety takes a look at what’s to come for the beleaguered comedian in this story.
