ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: A Pennsylvania judge on Saturday declared a mistrial in Bill Cosby's sexual assault case after the jury said it could not reach a verdict, but prosecutors vowed to retry the case and the disgraced entertainer still faces a slew of civil lawsuits. "We can never underestimate the blinding power of celebrity, but justice will come," said Gloria Allred, an attorney who represents many of Cosby's accusers. The jurors, who spent 53 hours debating whether Cosby was guilty or innocent, told Montgomery County Court of Common Pleas Judge Steven O'Neill they could not reach unanimous verdicts on whether Cosby was guilty of three counts of aggressive indecent assault against college administrator Andrea Constand at his home near Philadelphia in 2004. Saturday's result was a victory for the comedian, who avoided up to a decade in prison, but the district attorney said his office would seek a verdict in a second trial.
