Cosby Retrial Begins April 2nd

Bill Cosby will head back into a Pennsylvania courtrom for a retrial in his sexual assault case on April 2, 2018.  The Associated Press reports that after Cosby's first trial ended in  June with a hung jury, the retrial had originally been set to take place  in November 2017. 

However, last month Judge Steven O'Neill granted a  request for a new start date asked for by the comedian's new lawyers who  wanted to get up to speed on the case. Cosby is charged with drugging  and sexually assaulting former Temple University employee Andrea  Constand in 2004 at his home near Philadelphia.
