After a six-day trial and a “hopelessly deadlocked” jury, the judge declared a mistrial in the prosecution of comedian Bill Cosby for the alleged sexual assault of Andrea Constand. What happened to bring about a mistrial and what is the future of this case? This is our topic this week on the legal-affairs podcast Lawyer 2 Lawyer.
Two criminal law experts join us to discuss the case, the allegations, the prosecution strategy, the defense strategy, the mistrial, and what is likely to happen now:
- Attorney Letitia Quinones is from the firm Quinones & Associates, in Houston, Texas. She brings over 18 years of criminal law experience to her clients in Houston, throughout the state of Texas and across the nation.
- Attorney and professor Barbara Lynn Ashcroft is from the Beasley School of Law at Temple University.
