Date for Cosby retrial is set

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - - NEWS -

A JUDGE has sched­uled a new date for Bill Cosby’s retrial on charges that he drugged and mo­lested a woman more than a decade ago.

Judge Steven O’Neill or­dered the retrial to be­gin on April 2 next year.

He said jury se­lec­tion could get un­der­way be­fore then.

The retrial was ini­tially set for Novem­ber but last month Judge O’Neill granted a re­quest by Cosby’s new lawyers to de­lay it so they could get up to speed on the case.

The 80-year-old co­me­dian’s first trial in June ended in a hung jury.
