Bill Cosby is planning a series of talks about sexual assault in the wake of his own sexual assault court case ending in a mistrial.
“Mr. Cosby wants to get back to work,” his spokesman Andrew Wyatt said “We’re now planning town halls and we’re going to be coming to this city sometime in July … to talk to young people because this is bigger than Bill Cosby.”
“This issue can affect any young person, especially young athletes of today, and they need to know what they’re facing when they’re hanging out and partying, when they’re doing certain things that they shouldn’t be doing,” he Continued. “And it also affects married men.”
On June 17, a jury decided that it could not reach a verdict on charges that Cosby drugged and molested a woman at his home outside Philadelphia in early 2004. Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele immediately announced he would retry the case Judge Steven O’Neill said the trial would be within the next three or four months.
