Bill Cosby plans lectures on how not to get accused of sexual assault
In the story that seemingly won’t go away, Bill Cosby’s publicist now says the former TV star plans to hold lectures on how not to get accused of sexual assault.
Andrew Wyatt, who was at Cosby’s side during the entire trial and jury selection in Pittsburgh, said in an interview this week that Cosby is planning town halls for young people, especially athletes, to warn them of the dangers of “hanging out and partying, when they’re doing certain things they shouldn’t be doing.”
An Allegheny County jury of seven men and five women deadlocked in deliberations a week ago in Cosby’s sexual assault trial, leading a Montgomery County judge to declare a mistrial. Prosecutors have said they plan to retry Cosby.
Jurors were selected in Allegheny County because Cosby’s attorneys argued that pretrial publicity would make it difficult to find impartial jury candidates in Montgomery County, where Cosby lives.
