Retrial for Bill Cosby sex assault case set for November
Prosecutors will go back to Square 1 after jury failed to reach a verdict
Bill Cosby's retrial on charges he drugged and molested a Canadian woman more than a decade ago is set for November.
An order signed Thursday by Judge Steven O'Neill said all parties must report to the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pa., on Nov. 6.
Prosecutors found themselves back to Square 1 on June 17 after the judge declared a mistrial. The jury failed to reach a verdict in more than 52 hours of deliberations over six days.
District Attorney Kevin Steele vowed to put Cosby on trial again and said accuser Andrea Constand of Toronto supported the decision.
Cosby was tried on charges stemming from an encounter with the former Temple University worker, who said she was sexually assaulted in 2004.
Cosby turns 80 next week and contends the encounter was consensual.
