      A deadlocked jury has resulted in a judge declaring a mistrial in a high-profile case involving one of America's most famous entertainers.

      Bill Cosby was charged with three counts of aggravated indecent assault.

      Prosecutors plan to retry the comedian at a later date.

      Meanwhile, Cosby's wife Camille has issued a statement criticizing the judge, prosecutors, and journalists.

      Delivered through a spokesman, she stated: How do I describe the district attorney? Heinously and exploitively ambitious. How do I describe the judge? Overtly and arrogantly collaborating with the district attorney. How do I describe the counsels for the accusers? Totally unethical. How do I describe many, but not all, general media? Blatantly vicious entities that continually disseminated intentional omissions of truths for the primary purpose of greedily selling sensationalism at the expense of a human life."

      The complainant, Andrea Constand, is a Canadian and the former director of operations of the women's basketball team at Temple University.

      She alleged that Cosby gave her three blue pills to help her deal with stress.

      According to Constand, Cosby told her they were herbal remedies.

      She said that after taking the pills, she began slurring her words and then lost consciousness.

      Constand also testified that she was "jolted awake" and felt Cosby's hands groping her body.
