Bill Cosby narrowly avoided jail this week when a jury became deadlocked when attempting to reach a verdict on the accusations of three counts of aggravated sexual assault he is accused of.
Andrea Constand has accused the 79 year old of drugging and molesting her at his home in 2004. After deliberating for a week the case has been labelled a mistrial and has been called off, for now. Prosecutors wish to retry Cosby within the next 4 months.
Considering this, it’s perhaps a bit too soon for spokespeople for Cosby to declare today that the comedian wants to hold workshops on how to avoid accusations of sexual assault. Speaking on US news programme Good Morning Alabama an official spokesperson for Cosby declared the intention to hold these workshops and added the following statement:
“This issue can affect any young person, especially young athletes of today, and they need to know what they’re facing when they’re having out at parties.. when they’re doing stuff they shouldn’t be doing.”
Dodgy stuff. Not sure how this would actually go down but apparently Cosby and his people are in talks with town halls in America on holding these events this summer. Who would actually sign up attend such talks remains to be seen, but watch this space to see what the next Bill Cosby trial brings in terms of how good he actually is at avoiding such allegations.
