NORRISTOWN – After 52 hours of deliberations, Bill Cosby's trial on sexual assault charges ended in a mistrial. It was announced that jurors were unable to reach a verdict on any of the three felony counts at about 10:15 a.m. Saturday.

Cosby, 79, had been on trial for 11 days. He is accused of drugging and molesting then 31-yearold Andrea Constand in January 2004 inside his Elkins Park home.

The jury first reported they were deadlocked just after 11 a.m. Thursday. Judge Steven O’Neil then asked the jury to continue deliberation.

The jury is made up of seven men and five women.
