ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) A crowd gathered outside the courthouse shouted at comedian Bill Cosby as he arrived for jury deliberations on Friday, one day after jurors said they were deadlocked in his sexual assault trial. One person could be heard shouting, "Shame, shame, shame." While another shouted, "Love you, Bill," as the comedian arrived for court. Jurors deciding Cosby's fate will resume deliberations on Friday morning in an effort to break a deadlock on all three charges. After the jury sent a note on Thursday morning saying that it was unable to reach a unanimous verdict, Judge Steven O'Neill, in a state court in Norristown, Pennsylvania, instructed the panel to continue trying. But the jurors failed to come to an agreement by 9 p.m., after 40 hours of discussions thus far. Cosby, 79, is accused of sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his Philadelphia-area home in 2004 after giving her pills that she says left her unable to resist. The former star of the 1980s TV hit "The Cosby Show" faces similar allegations from dozens of women, though only Constand's claim has resulted in criminal charges. Cosby has denied every accusation and said that his encounter with Constand was consensual.
