Even though a mistrial declared today meant that Bill Cosby's high profile sexual assault case didn't exactly go the way their office wanted, prosecutors in Montgomery (PA) County announced immediately that they are not done.
More than 60 women have come forward to accuse Cosby of sexual misconduct, alleging a pattern of sexual abuse over decades.
Cosby is also set to face a civil suit in California later this month.
Had he been found guilty, Cosby, 79, would have faced a maximum of 10 years in prison for each count.
Allison doesn't think the mistrial is the win for Cosby that his spokesperson has declared it to be.
Linda Kirkpatrick, one of the women accusing Cosby of sexual assault, told CNN shortly after the mistrial the entire ordeal had forced those accusing the star to relive a frightful time in their lives.
The fact that the trial did not end in acquittal could be considered a small victory for Constand and other alleged victims. "He didn't know we are seeds ... uncovering the rape culture in this country", Kirkpatrick said.
The sequestered seven-man, five-woman panel spent 52 hours deliberating in the Philadelphia suburb of Norristown, Pennsylvania-far longer than the amount of time dedicated to testimony and legal arguments. Allred said that "we can never underestimate the blinding power of celebrity" and vowed that "justice will come".
Legal experts had always warned that the "he said, she said" nature of the case was always going to be hard to prove in court, not least because it happened so long ago and due to a lack of physical evidence. Overtly arrogant, collaborating with the district attorney.
More than a dozen excerpts from Cosby's deposition, including the "friends" comment and his acknowledgment that he'd gone "somewhere between permission and rejection" during a previous encounter with Constand.
As talk turned to a possible retrial for Cosby, "Silicon Valley" star Kumail Nanjiani asked if it were possible to find a jury not biased because of his fame.
At one point during the trial, McMonagle stood beside Cosby and suggested to jurors that while Cosby may have been an unfaithful husband, that didn't make him a criminal.
The comedian's defense attorney, Brian McMonagle, offered a classic, off-the-rack depiction of 44-year-old Constand as a fabulist and willing participant on the "romantic" night he gave her pills "to relax" and then "danced outside [his] marriage".
