It's been announced that Cosby will head back into court on November 6th, per a story by The Daily News.

Following the shocking mistrial judgment in the Bill Cosby rape case, the district attorney released a statement vowing to "get justice."

Kevin Steele, the Montgomery County District Attorney, told journalists, "We have made the determination of moving forward, and it lies in the fact she deserves a verdict in this case … and we will push forward to try and get justice done."

He continued, "We hope that moving forward in this case sends a strong message that victims of these types of crimes can come forward and can be heard on what has happened to them."

The trial jury was not able to come to a unanimous, or even majority, decision regarding the case involving the alleged victim, Andrea Constand.

Constand was the Temple University women's basketball team manager, and Cosby was a significant donor to the school, as well as a member of the board of trustees.

She accused Cosby of drugging and molesting her at his home in 2004 and he was charged with three counts of aggravated indecent assault stemming from the incident.

Cosby's wife Camille released a prepared statement herself, following the mistrial ruling.


She wrote, "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."

Cosby's legal team has not commented on the new court date at this time.
