Cosby jury still deadlocked, to continue deliberating into weekend

VIDEO: Cosby deliberations continue...

NORRISTOWN, Pa. - Bill Cosby's defense team again asked for a mistrial Friday night, after more than 50 hours into jury deliberations in his suburban Philadelphia sexual assault case.

The defense argues jurors have talked about the charges long enough. 

Judge Steven O'Neill denied the request after saying he's compelled by law to allow deliberations to go on for as long as the jury wants.

Those deliberations will now go into Saturday, after the jury could not reach a verdict Friday evening.

The legal wrangling came as jurors had another piece of testimony read back to them Friday - this time from the brother-in-law of accuser Andrea Constand.

Cosby is charged with drugging and molesting Constand at his home in 2004.

He says it was consensual.
