The Bill Cosby retrial begins today

Bill Cosby's retrial begins in Pennsylvania on Monday, April 10, 2018. The first time the 80-year-old comedian's case returns to court since the #MeToo movement began six months ago.

Cosby faces three counts of aggravated indecent assault. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Andrea Constand, a former Temple University employee who says that Cosby drugged her and then assaulted her at his home in 2004. 

Cosby's attorneys have argued that he and Constand had a consenting sexual relationship.

    With little to no forensic evidence, the prosecution's case will relie on Constand and her testimony. Cosby's defense attorneys plan to try to undermine her testimony by arguing how "greedy" she was in a 2006 civil settlement with Cosby.

    This is the second trial for Cosby on these charges. Last June, Montgomery County Judge Steven O'Neill declared a mistrial when jurors could not come to a unanimous verdict on any of the charges against Cosby.

    This time around will be different as the #MeToo movement is sure to stir many different feelings and emotions. Bill Cosby has also been on record stating that he is worried that the judge overseeing this case, as well as jurors will have biases regarding the #MeToo movement that will paint him in a negative light. 

    We will be monitoring this case closely.
