After a Pennsylvania judge granted a mistrial after a jury announced they were deadlocked for the second time in the sexual assault trial of Bill Cosby, one of the actor and comedian’s multiple accusers is speaking out about what that means.
It’s not an acquittal,” Tamara Green, a retired California attorney who first came forward with allegations against Cosby in 2005, tells PEOPLE of Saturday’s mistrial.
She adds, “I have faith in the jury system of the United States.”
The comedian is accused of drugging and sexually assaulting former Temple University employee Andrea Constand at his Elkins Park, Pennsylvania, mansion in January 2004. The District Attorney has already announced that they plan to retry Cosby in the case.
The six-day trial followed a lengthy scandal in which dozens of women have come forward with stories of how Cosby, 79, allegedly sexually abused and assaulted them over decades. The Cosby Show alum has denied every claim.CLICK FOR MORE
